Cashel Folk Village

Cashel Folk Village features historical retrospectives of the Irish revolutionary period 1916-1923, the Great Irish Famine 1845-1851. Also featured is a penal chapel containing religious artifacts, the original Croke Memorial that commemorates Archbishop Croke of Cashel and Emly who was a founding member of the Gaelic Athletic Association, a traditional 'tinker' caravan and a 19th century 'brougham' carriage.

Of further interest is a statue of the World War II-era IRA leader Sean Russell (1893-1940), a replica blacksmith's forge and information about Catholic clergyman John Lanigan (1758-1825).

A range of historical artifacts include ancient Irish tools, old hunting traps, old Irish dressers, an original Blueshirt, bog butter, an ancient standing stone, original Irish elk antlers (the Irish elk became extinct  between 8,000 and 12,000 years ago.) and much more.

The Cashel Folk Museum is closely associated with the nearby Rock of Cashel and the local Cashel Arts and Heritage Society.
