Gallows Green and the 1798 Rebellion

The 1798 Rebellion was planned by the United Irishmen. Cork city was not deeply affected by the rebellion. However, the United Irishmen were active in the city. After the rebellion, many of those found guilty of membership of the organisation were executed. Some were shot in a field on the western edges of the city, while others were hanged at Gallows Green.
