Like a Rock

What better way to celebrate St. Patrick's Day than with a visit to the Rock of Cashel, otherwise known as St. Patrick's Rock.

According to local mythology, the Rock of Cashel originated in the Devil's Bit, a mountain 20 miles north of Cashel, when St. Patrick banished Satan from a cave, resulting in the Rock's landing in Cashel. Cashel is reputed to be the site of the conversion of the King of Munster by St. Patrick in the 5th century.
