Looking at the walls segment from the southeast.


The town walls of Cashel were built between 1319 and 1324 under a Charter of Murage by king Edward II, during the episcopate of Archbishop FitzJohn, Chancellor of Ireland.
The town walls enclosed about 28 acres when completed, with a total perimeter of just over one mile.
The town walls had five gates, John's Gate to south, Lower Gate to west, Moor Gate to north, Canopy Gate to northeast and Friary Gate to southeast.
This section of walls stands west of Moor Gate and runs along the southeast-northwest axis (150°-330°).
