Description

Mondays at the Mess - talks and lecture series - Richmond Barracks

Gala Days: Execution in Late Medieval Dublin – Monday 5th March at 11am

Lecturer: Dr Áine Foley

This talk will explore execution in Dublin city and county in the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries. Public execution was the norm in the medieval period and some executions could draw large crowds. The modern expression Gala Day is derived from the Anglo-Saxon gallows day, confirming that these were public events from a very early period. This paper will discuss where the gallows were located in Dublin, why people were executed, as well as examining the different methods of execution used in the medieval city and county.
