The Rock of Cashel
Description: "Cashel" is the Anglicized version of the Gaelic word "Caiseal," meaning "fort." The site in Ireland was chosen by the Welsh as a fort in the 4th century and was later, in the 12th century, given to the Church. The site contains ancient Celtic elements, such as this cross, and various religious architectural features were added over the centuries, as the early fort became a center for worship. This view is from the grounds of the "Rock" out over the countryside.
