Rock of Cashel

We stopped by the Rock of Cashel on our trip through Ireland.

According to local mythology, the Rock of Cashel originated in the Devil's Bit, a mountain 20 miles (30 km) north of Cashel when St. Patrick banished Satan from a cave, resulting in the Rock's landing in Cashel. Cashel is reputed to be the site of the conversion of the King of Munster by St. Patrick in the 5th century.

The Rock of Cashel was the traditional seat of the kings of Munster for several hundred years prior to the Norman invasion. In 1101, the King of Munster, Muirchertach Ua Briain, donated his fortress on the Rock to the Church. The picturesque complex has a character of its own and is one of the most remarkable collections of Celtic art and medieval architecture to be found anywhere in Europe. Few remnants of the early structures survive; the majority of buildings on the current site date from the 12th and 13th centuries.

A spectacular group of Medieval buildings set on an outcrop of limestone in the Golden Vale including the 12th century round tower, High Cross and Romanesque Chapel, 13th century Gothic cathedral, 15th century Castle and the restored Hall of the Vicars Choral.

<p>Cashel, County Tipperary, Ireland.<br />
<br />
This 12th century fortress was the traditional seat of the kings of Munster for several hundred years. A tour of the rock is a must do on any trip to Ireland, as there is so much history here and so many photo opportunities. After touring the rock, be sure to take a walk down to Hore Abbey, just down the hill and across Camus road. The ruins there are also stunning and offer many views back up to the rock.</p>			<p><a href="http://www.flickr.com/people/ajwilson70/">Andrew Wilson 70</a> posted a photo:</p>
