Photographer's Note

Legend associates the Rock of Cashel with St. Patrick, but the name comes from Caiseal, meaning "stone fort." Originally the residence of the kings of Munster, the Rock began to be developed into a major Christian center in the early 12th century. Today the ruins stand on a hill outside the charming little town of Cashel. The 90 foot tall round tower dates back to around 1100. There's also a chapel and a (now roofless) cathedral.

When we were there, a lot of scaffolding cluttered up the view. I removed it (for those of you wondering where it went.)
