Repurposed – photo challenge: Rock of Cashel

This week’s photo challenge of the Daily Post is about ‘repurposed’. There are a million possible ways to interpret this topic… However, as I love travelling I see ‘repurpose’ in different buildings or places I have been such as the ‘Rock of Cashel’ in Ireland.

The Rock of Cashel is located in county Tipperary and was originally used as the home of The Kings of Munster for a few hundred years before the Normans invaded the country. However, Muirchertach Ua Briain donated the castle to the church in 1101 when it became a kind of a monastery. Around Europe, the complex with its special character is one of the most remarkable collections of Celtic art and medieval architecture with buildings that can be dated to the 12th and 13th century.

Hence, it was a special time visiting such a resilient, graceful and magical place.
