The word 'cashel' is an Anglicised version of the Irish word caiseal, meaning 'fortress' (related to the English 'castle', from the Latin castellum). Cashel is one of the proud tidy town winners in 2017. The town of Cashel owes its existence to a giant limestone outcrop of massive historical and social importance.
