Governor Lynch was forced to execute his own son, and sentenced him to death for what he had killed a Spanish citizen. Interestingly, no one wanted to do it, until a cruel father himself could not endure a death sentence. It was after this case an expression of "Lynch law". The young man was put to death, and on the wall of the prison appeared black marble plate, reminiscent of the case.
Shop Street, on which the castle stands Lynch - is the main shopping street in Galway, where many different shops and restaurants, small cafes, you can listen to the street musicians. Tourists will be interesting to walk around the neighborhood, but of course, the main goal of the journey - an old castle, which is undoubtedly the cultural and historical value.
