Irish Mystical Journey: Rock of Cashel in Tipperary, Ireland

Did you know that an image of St. Brigit of Kildare stands beside the apostles on an altar at this ancient heritage site at the Rock of Cashel? Did you know that there is an sheel-na-gig, an ancient fertility figure on the outside wall of the Rock of Cashel? It is more evidence of the influence of and partnership of women in early Celtic Christian history.
