The Rock of Cashel has traditionally been the seat of the King of Munster and was visited by The Queen of England at her request in 2011. The oldest building is the round tower dating back to the 1100s. The chapel of King Cormac Mac Carthaigh is a much more ornate and complicated structure than other buildings of its period built in 1127. The Cathedral was built between 1235 and 1270 and was the jewel in the crown of the Catholic church. Arthur Price, the Anglican Archbishop of Cashel, had the roof removed in 1749 which led to the fantastic church falling into ruin.
