Clonmel County Gaol.



Clonmel County Gaol was written by Michael Ahern. Michael Ahern is author of Figures in Landscape (2006) and The Quakers of County Tipperary 1655-1924 (2009) The cells in Clonmel gaol held many famous criminals, from William Brearum the highwayman, to Michael Cleary, who murdered his wife in the mistaken belief that she was a witch. Prison reisters also record these driven to crime by the desperation of The Great Famine and others waiting to be sent on convict ships to an uncertain future in a distant land. Crowds routinely gathered outside to be entertained by the drama of gallows. While the sprited few, refusing to accept the constraints of confinement, scaled its walls in a bid for freedom, the vast majority were left to suffer the privations and hardships of a regime that advocated "hard labour, hard labour and hard fare"
