The Rock of Cashel, County Tipperary

We sought our riches in the sky
Where we thought they couldn’t touch us
Built our castle up on high
Closer there to God
But time and sword they came
Slinking in through stone
Taking until all was left
A hill of rock and bone
— Claire Loader

There are few things in life that are truly awe inspiring, that catch you in your throat, stop you in your tracks.  Towering over the rolling green plains of Tipperary, the Rock of Cashel is one of them.  Like something out of a dream, her towers reach impossibly towards the heavens, her walls nearly kissing the clouds, as they dance then with the sky.

You can find the location of this spectacular site and the many other places I’ve visited here. Come explore with me…
