Ireland - County Tipperary


Today we went south to County Tipperary where we saw the Irish National Stud Farm. From there we went to the Rock of Cashel. The picture above is part of the building. It was first built in the 5th century and expanded in the 8th, 11th, and 12th centuries. Because of its historical significance and its original architecture/artistic examples, it is a national treasure.
