“Western” (?) Ireland: Cashel

We were supposed to go to Cork today, but it was so darn crowded we jumped on the M and went up to Cashel instead. The Rock of Cashel is beautiful and as expected, but the ruins of the Hore Abbey, a former Benedictine Abbey that is both well preserved and available to run through, was the highlight. So what if it was Central Ireland.
