Rock the CashelJune 23, 2016 in Ireland ⋅
First stop on our tour was the Rock of Cashel! It is said that when Saint Patrick returned to Ireland to rid the land of the devil, the devil threw a giant rock at Saint Patrick which he evaded with the help of a Shamrock. On this site, a large castle was built between the 11th and 13th Centuries that house a variety of high nobles and religious figures from Ireland, and the tomba of many of these people still rest in this place.
Walking the grounds was a very sombre affair, with crows overhead and the ruins of tombstones surroubding us, but the importance and history of the monument was definitely not lost.
Up next, Blarney Castle!Read more
