    St. Patrick's Rock

    Also called St. Patrick's Rock, the Rock of Cashel is actually a huge limestone hill on top of which are the remains of some extraordinary pieces of medieval architecture.

    It is said that when the devil flew over the area with a piece of rock in his mouth, he spotted St.Patrick picking a shamrock to explain the idea of the Holy Trinity to locals. His mouth fell open in shock, and the rock fell. When you stand on the rock you can still see a gap in the hills known as "the Devil's Bit"...

    This sculpture can be found outside the Brú Boru Cultural Heritage Centre, next to the car park at the Rock of Cashel.
