The ruins on the Rock of Cashel in Co Tipperary dominate the surrounding countryside. The former cathedral built between 1235 and 1270 shows signs of many alterations over the centuries. The round tower is earlier and thought to date from around 1100. Also on the rock is Cormac’ s Chapel, built between 1127 and 1134, it is a very sophisticated example of Romanesque architecture, but its exterior currently shrouded in scaffolding, while it undergoes necessary repairs.
