cashel 6.23.00 - 6.24.00

So we trekked down to see the Rock of Cashel. The word Cashel is an anglicized version of the Irish word Caiseal. The translations means 'fortress' which is exactly what it was used for. St. Patrick converted a leader in the 5th century in a ceremony in which he accidentally stabbed the king in the foot with his walking staff. The king, thinking this was a painful initiation rite, bore the pain.
