Pronounced and spelled as ''Gaol'' Regionally, Kilmainham is located near The City of Dublin (Ireland). A ''County Prison'', it went into use around 1796. It's Gallows (with regular executions) were erected at the Front Entrance. Later (in the 1820s, a more ''private venue inside The Prison) was used to hang convicted criminals. Unusual in That Kilmainham was used for ''all sexes and ages'', there was no segregation of Prisoners. Little rations, poor sanitation these conditions often lead to more deaths than did violence. It was not until the 1840s that even proper bedding was provided. During The Irish Rebellion of 1916 (Easter Rising), many Rebels were executed ''en masse''. Many famed Irish Rebellion Leaders were imprisoned within The Jail's walls. Closed in 1924 and turned into a Museum of sorts, Kilmainham has it's share of haunts. From lights being turned on and off, to suddenly closing (aged) Prison Cell doors to even People being ''pushed'' by ''unseen hands'', all manner of paranormal activities have been reported and investigated at Kilmainham over the years.
