Galway - St Nicholas Collegiate Church - Feature #17
Galway - St Nicholas Collegiate Church - Feature #17
The 1946 Transformation Window (Feature #17) is a fine example of Irish stained glass. In the left corner of the transep are the remains of the tomb of James Lynch (Feature #16), the first mayor of Galway. A local, though unfounded, tradition asserts that he hanged his own son who was convicted of murder, as no one else would carry out the sentence. Just outside the church, a ghoulish panel below a window in the only remaining wall of a building that once was another home of the Lynch family depicts the location where Walter Lynch was hanged in 1493 by his father James, the term "Lynched" meant hanged.
