The Rock of Cashel, Cashel, County Tipperary, Ireland. Photographed late evening , the Rock sits proudly in the last rays of sun from the west. This place holds a special place in my heart having lived about three miles from the Rock for some years. However the sight of this ancient structure never failed to impress, whether seeing it at dawn or dusk, lit by natural light or the lighting around it at night accentuating its shape and providing an orange glow to its majestic shapes. According to local mythology, the Rock of Cashel originated from the Devil's Bit, a mountain 30km north of Cashel. The Story goes that when St. Patrick banished Satan from a cave, it was spat out and landed at the site of the Rock. The Rock of Cashel was the traditional seat of the Kings of Munster for hundreds of years until the Norman invasion in 1101. It remains one of the finest examples of Medieval Structures and Celtic art to be found anywhere is Europe. I continue to be drawn to photograph this wonderful place whenever I visit family in Cashel. I cannot recommend enough the Rock of Cashel, Cashel, County Tipperary, Ireland.
