Cahergall Cashel Interior
Cahergall Cashel Interior
Image of the impressive cashel interior - The walls are reconstructed in parts and massive, not only in height, but in thickness too, with a stepped interior.

In the centre is a circular structure, probably a form of large beehive hut. Cahergal is from the Irish At Chathair Gheal meaning 'the bright stone fort' and on sunny days, the quartz used in its construction will add a glistening quality - perhaps where it got its name from? The massive site is thought to be earlier than nearby Leacanabuaile, perhaps being built in the early 7th century
