Cashel, Co. Tipperary, Ireland
The Rock of Cashel, a set of monastic ruins, sit on top of a hill overlooking the entire valley. This set of ruins, a much smaller monastery, lie in that valley, and through a small window in the wall of the Rock of Cashel, I took this photograph.
I love this picture because it’s so typical of Ireland. Beautiful green fields, sheep, and ruins of a monastery. We actually walked all the way out to those ruins (through the very muddy grass) to find some graffiti and beer cans. More memorable, however, was how free we were to wander about the ruins. We were completely alone and could do whatever we wanted to. Gorgeous.
