Legend

Folklore tells of a witch who jumped from the summit of the Round Tower to express her dissatisfaction with its construction. She apparently landed on a large stone leaving in it the impressions of her knee and elbow. To this day the rock is known as the ‘Witch's Stone’. It is located next to the Round Tower.
