THE ROCK OF CASHEL, APRIL 2015 Sign In or Register to add photos

On returning from the unveiling of the commemorative plaque to mark McGraths' Castle in Dungarvan, members of the Clan McGrath to the opportunity to visit the Rock of Cashel. The site is the ancient seat of the Kings of Munster and Brian Boru himself was crowned King on the site. In the 12th Century the site was given to the Church and Cathedral and an Archbishop's tower house was eventual built. From this site Archbishop Miler McGrath commanded his territories and ministered to his flock. He spent over 50 years here and is buried in a tomb on the site. Unfortunately the tomb is covered at the moment due to restoration work on Cormac's Chapel. This work is likely to continue for a further two years, however the Office of Public Works who look after the site have placed an information board in the vicinity of the tomb.
