WHAT IS IT? The Rock of Cashel, also known as Cashel of the Kings and St. Patrick's Rock, is a historic site located at Cashel, County Tipperary, Ireland
|The Vicar's Choral (Quarters)|
THE VICARS CHORAL (QUARTERS)- This is one of the only rooms that has been revitalized and rebuilt on the property in 1975. This room and structure was built in the 15th century. It was where clerics and clergyman stayed. Originally there were 8, then reduced to 5. This continued until 1836.
In the upstairs the kitchen and dining room were redone, too.

When we walked into this room, I (Rob) got a headache, and sensed a lot of energy there. It was residual, meaning that it wasn't a ghost I could talk to and get answers from. It was a thumbprint of energy - and it was strong enough that I got the sense of several men (only men) in this building talking about politics (rule) and religion of the time (1500s) (which makes sense that these religious folk would be scared of invasions from England and have their cathedral and castle and land challenged.)

I also experience tightness in my throat when I was in the room, almost like smoking (although I confess I wouldn't know what that feels like). There were no intelligent haunts there, although it is a site where a lot of people likely perished. Because the place is mostly in ruins, it wouldn't hold the energy of the ghosts that were attached to it, so they likely moved on.
