J4187 : Pillory, Carrickfergus

near to Eden, Ireland

Pillory, Carrickfergus
Pillory, Carrickfergus
Long before Belfast was even a crossing point on the river, Carrickfergus was the principal legal and administrative centre for Co Antrim. It had the castle and military garrison, courthouse and jail and was the place where executions took place. This (reproduction) pillory is a reminder of how miscreants were dealt with in the 16th century (before the invention of the safari holiday). See also J2053 : The old stocks, Dromore.
