Rock of Cashel   Leave a comment

Visited the Rock of Cashel today, built in the early 1100s, and seat of the Kings of Munster. This was one of St. Patrick’s hangouts. Showpiece was Cormac’s Chapel, which is being restored. Made of sandstone, it is one of the finest examples of Hiberno-Romanesque architecture. (Did you get that?)
