Once the home of the Kings of Munster, Cashel is a town dominated by one of Ireland's most impressive landmarks, the Rock of Cashel. A limestone outcrop, rising above the plain, it is a dramatic stand on which are displayed an array of structures: castle, round tower, Romanesque chapel, Gothic cathedral, associated ecclesiastical buildings, crosses, tombs all enclosed within an intimidating stone wall.

Cashel itself is an important tourist destination but also a busy provincial town home to around 10,000 between the town and its surroundings. This book explores the History of Cashel from earliest times to the modern day and accompanies the tale with wonderful black and white and colour images taken by the author and others.

Featuring two walking trails, "Cashel: A History & Guide" is an excellent addition to the body of work already existing on this town and its imposing heritage.
