Cashel Overview

Cashel Town owes its origin to the Rock of Cashel. The 'rock' is actually a stratified limestone, elevated from the broad plain. Atop this geological wonder is a group of remarkable ruins

The Rock of Cashel is apparently the site that St. Patrick converted the king of Munster. Unfortunately the saint accidentally stabbed the king in the foot with his crosier. The king, thinking it was part of the initiation rite, bore the pain.

The St. Patrick's Cross is also inside the castel, this cross was used in the inauguration ceremonies of the kings of Munster centuries ago.
