The Tara church was chartered to the Knights Hospitallers of St. Saint John of Kilmainham (the modern Knights of Malta) by Pope Innocent III in 1212.

Curiously (and ironically) the 13th century Knights have a self-defined modern successor in the Royal Black Institution, an offshoot of the Orange Order, and one with an affiliation with the beliefs of the British Israelites. See a photo of a Royal Black Institution banner in the gallery below the section on the Rath of the Synods. More information may be found here.
