Roads many were hanged, it is known now a days as Gibbet Hill. They used to leave the dead bodies hanging from the branches of trees, or from the upturned shafts of a car, the bodies thus hanging were to serve as a warning to passers by what would be done to any rebels.
At the foot of this hill is Gallow's Lane, there was a gallows erected there Billy Byrne and Paddy Grant were hanged there.
There is a monument in the Market Square in commemoration of Billy Byrne, and the other brave men who died for Ireland and who fought in Wicklow in 1798 against the English.

Q. Why is Wicklow so much like a pin?
A. because it has a Head and a Point (Wicklow Head lies to the South east of the town and Five Mile Point is North east of the town).
