Abstract: We present new multi-wavelength data for the NGC 4410 galaxy group. This group contains the peculiar radio galaxy NGC 4410A, which has a distorted double-lobed radio structure. NGC 4410A is strongly interacting with three nearby galaxies, and has a peculiar ring-like optical morphology, a number of luminous H II regions, as well as tidal tails and bridges variously visible in optical, HI, and X-ray light. The gravitational interaction has affected the interstellar matter, the star formation rate, and the radio lobes in this system.
