Kings of Munster

Caseal Cashel – Interior

Translated to Rock Of Castle, and also known as the Cashel of the Kings or St. Patrick’s Rock, the place looks every bit like one of those typical castle on a hill you’d see in fairy tales or on the front cover of trashy romance novels from far away. But up close, it looks more like the ruins of an old cathedral from the medieval period.

This was the seat of the kings of Munster. It was a very quiet and haunting place, one of my favorite spots in Ireland. Outside was a graveyard and miles and miles of green. These will be my last photographs in black and white (I hope). For my next few pics, I wanna show how green it really was over there. It’s a different shade of green, one that I’ve never realized even existed. It’s not the same green I’ve seen in the east coast or the green I’ve seen in Philippines. It’s definitely more vibrant. Or maybe it’s just me. I don’t know. Meh.
