Youghal Clock Gate

In 1777, the town’s Clock Gate Tower was built on the site of Trinity Castle, part of the town’s fortifications. It was used as a prison during the rebellion of 1798, and a pole lashed from the lower windows to the corner of the first house on South Main Street (now Luigi’s) was used for hangings. Thomas Gallagher was one of those hanged for trying to seduce a soldier from allegiance to his regiment. Numerous forms of torture were conducted therein including thumb screws, pitch-cap, rack and the lime boot and flogging. The Clock Gate served the town as gaol and public gallows until 1837 when it was considered “defective in several of the accommodations essential to the health of prisoners”. It then became a family home until 1959 when the last family left.

  1. I like that flash clock because it has a good and old faction style image, and it is seems that the flash clock is in 2D, as in 2 dimensions, is that right? I made a 3D flash clock and i wanted to make sure it is in 2D. Thanks for sharing.
