This weekend I took a little trip by myself, to see the Rock of Cashel in County Tipperary. I wanted to do something distinctly Irish during my final days here, and my friend Christina from home told me months ago that I needed to go here….so I decided to go and was not disappointed. The only bummer is that they are restoring part of the monument, and there was scaffolding up on one side (hence why I don’t have a picture of the entire thing).
But, here are some photos, if you’d like to see:
The landscape all around was beautiful
I love Medieval architecture
The sun was out all day
Fresco remnants inside Cormac’s Chapel
These just don’t get old
Fun fact: the graveyard here is still in use. 2 final
Cashel residents will be buried here when they die!
St. Patrick’s cross-they built this in the
12th century in honor of St. Patrick, who
(legend has it) visited the Rock 800 years
Here’s to my final week in Ireland. I have lots more to say, but for now I’ll end with an Irish blessing:
May you always have walls for the winds,
a roof for the rain, tea beside the fire,
laughter to cheer you, those you love near you,
and all your heart might desire.
