Lynch's Window
Description:This is a photograph of the memorial to the execution of a son for murder by his father. Mayor Lynch hung his own son from a window. It is not sure if this ever actually happened. It is claimed that the event took place in 1493. The wording on the plaque beneath the window, in this photograph, allows the reader to assume that this is the actual window used for the execution. This memorial was erected in the 1800s. Beneath the plaque there is a bas-relief of a skull and cross bones. Beneath this, there is a walled up arched doorway. Saint Nicholas' Collegiate Church can be seen beyond the window.
