The Queen's Historic Visit to Ireland
It's a Long Way to Tipperary
Queen Elizabeth (left) and Prince Philip (2nd left) visit St Patrick's Rock in Cashel, County Tipperary May 20, 2011. It's one of Ireland's most popular tourist sites. The Rock of Cashel was the seat of the High Kings of Munster, long before the 11th Century Norman invasion, and most of the buildings on the site date from the 12th and 13th Centuries. According to legend, the rock was created when the devil spat out a piece of mountain he had bitten off during a battle with St Patrick. Thankfully for the VIP's, they listened to some harp playing and singing from schoolchildren, and signed the visitors' book.
