Cashel is a village in County Galway, in the province of Connacht, Ireland. It is located west of Galway city and southeast of Clifden, on the coast. History[edit sourceÂ | edit]
The name Cashel derives from the Irish Caiseal, referring to the stone ringfort surrounding the old part of the cemetery in Caiseal Ard/High Cashel, 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 GÃ©nÃ©ral de Gaulle spent two weeks in Cashel, after he resigned the presidency of France, in Cashel House Hotel. References[edit sourceÂ | edit] ^ http://www.connemaraireland.com/cashel/ Connemara Ireland: Cashel. Retrieved December 27, 2006.
