Cashel Photos

We ran in a park in Cork the next morning, then drove up to Cashel. Cashel is mostly flat green fields, with a huge limestone rock sticking out of the middle. A group of buildings were built on top of the rock, but they were abandoned a while back and are now mostly ruins. After Cashel, we drove on to Dublin.

There's a ruined abbey behind the rock.

The only part of the religious complex still in use is this graveyard. Once it fills up, Cashel rock will be a tourist attraction only.

The whole cathedral roof is gone, leaving this huge block of masonry almost floating over the center of the cathedral.

Dublin at last! Here is the famous Ha'Penny bridge. Or at least the scaffolding that is on it until the repair work is done.
