Cashel, Co. Galway
The name Cashel derives from a circular stone fort, whose remains lie on the slope of a mountain about 1 km north-east of the town. To the west is Toombeola Bridge, near which are the remains of a Dominican Abbey, founded in 1427, by one of the O'Flaherty clan which held sway over Connemara until the rule of James II of England.
In 1969, the Général de Gaulle spent two weeks in Cashel, after he resigned the presidency of France, in Cashel House Hotel.
