Ireland VIII (Caahir to Cashel, Ireland)

Cahir is a fine example of a late Medieval Castle that had been enlarged and greatly remodeled in the 15th to 17th centuries. When the main line of the Butler family died out in the late 1700's, the castle fell into ruin. It was partly restored in the 1840's by the Cahir Butlers and more heavily restored after it became a National Monument in 1964.

Today's drive was through the Vee, which is just covered in massive rhododendron's...there is no way to describe how many there are. The Rhododendron was only introduced to the area around the Vee in the 1960′s and has, since that time taken over the entire mountainside, killing off virtually every other plant that had previously grown there.
