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>The majestic Rock of Cashel, Co. Tipperary, Ireland and partly clouded Galtee Mountains in the distance. The Hore Abbey can be seen in the distance towards the right <br />
<br />
I was back in my native Cashel. I lived just to the right of this photo. I took this photo just after sunset. It was a pity the mountains were partly obscured by clouds. <br />
<br />
I put my camera on my Manfrotto 190 Tripod at almost its maximum height so I could shoot over the Roadside Crash Barrier. I used a Hahnel wired trigger.</p>			<p><a href="http://www.flickr.com/people/113189878@N03/">robarray</a> posted a photo:</p>
