Cashel and Around

A misty morning at Donaghmore, a 9th century Church with steep pitched roof
Its beautiful Romanesque Doorway
Carron, a 4000 year old Henge monument, not much left of it now, think stonehenge but in wood
Ráth na Drinne, a 4 embanked ringfort
The highly inappropriately named Hore Abbey, with the Rock of Cashel beyond
The impressive Athassel Abbey

Over the weekend I went sketch exploring south and west of Cashel with sketch group Sceitse. We had a great day for it, starting with spooky mist till around 10 am and the rest of the day being glorious sunshine, it was a joy to be about. Amazing sites too, from a Bronze Age henge, to an Early medieval Ringfort, and then onto later Medieval Abbeys, we saw some pretty amazing places, while chatting, laughing and sketching as we went, exactly as a Sceitse should be.
