Halla an Bhaile / The Tholsel
Halla an Bhaile
Ó dá fhocal sa sean-Bhéarla, "tol" agus "sael", a chiallaíonn 'halla cánach', a thagann ainm an fhoirgnimh is suntasaí ar an tSráid Ard.
Tógadh Halla an Bhaile thart ar 1578 agus atógadh i 1761 é. D'fhreastail sé ar Chill Chainnigh mar áit chruinnithe, mar theach custaim agus anois tá oifigí cathartha Chomhairle Bhuirg Chill Chainnigh suite ann, lena n-áirítear Seomra na Comhairle agus Oifig an Mhéara. Tá cartlann an-tábhachtach chathartha Chill Chainnigh, ina bhfuil an "Liber Primus" ('An Chéad Leabhar') mar an ní is tábhachtaí, á coimeád i Halla an Bhaile.
Cuireann tosach stuara an fhoirgnimh, an túr cloig, agus an suíomh ag an pointe is leithne ag an tSráid Ard in iúl gur Áit Mhargaidh a bhíodh san áit seo. Bhí Cross an Mhargaidh bunúil suite an-ghar don láthair seo idir 1300 agus 1771.
High Street's most significant building, gets its name from the old English words "tol" and "sael" meaning the hall of taxes.
The arcaded front, clock tower, and position at the widest point of High Street is a reminder of the fact that this area served as a Market Place. The original Market Cross, depicted, stood very close to this location from 1300 to 1771.
