Lynch’s Castle is an iconic landmark in Galway city. Works on the Abbeygate Street Upper Frontage discovered a previously unnoticed masons mark.
The masons mark was found carved onto the cusped spadrels of a small blocked Gothic window at 1st floor level on the Abbeygate Street Upper side of the building. This is one of the few windows in their original location.
The masons mark is a small incised heart. I wonder has anyone come across anything similar?
