リンチ（私刑）の語源にもなった、地元の有力者リンチ一族の居城。今は銀行になっている。 15世紀に治安判事を務めていたジェームズ・フィッツスティーブン・リンチ氏の息子が人を殺してしまい、罪を裁く立場にあった父のリンチ氏は自分の息子に死刑の判決を下した・・・と言ういわれがある。 城と言っても、それほど大きくはない。ガーゴイルや装飾的な浮き彫り、壁面に彫られたリンチ家の紋章が興味深い。Etymology of Lynch (were) became the local elite Lynch clan resided. Becoming a bank right now. In the 15th century had served as a Justice of the peace James Fitz Stephen Lynch Lynch's father was in a position that he would judge would kill the man, his son said his son ruled the death penalty... and rap says there is.

Interesting site to visit while in galway
