It is the property of Lord Clanmorris. Agent, Mr. Nugent, of Dublin. It is held by Mrs. Shaughnessy, of Dublin, under a lease of 999 years at the yearly rent of 18s. per acre, and is sublet by her to tenants at ?1 per acre, none of whom resides on the td. The soil is light, and affords middling grazing.

When searching for a placename type some or all of the word and click search. If you are unsure of the spelling try a part of the word . For example the placename Mocharra sounds like Moharra so if you search for arra you should find it. For example a placename record ( eg Rostaff ) gives the townland ( eg Moyne ) and the civil parish ( eg Shrule ) .
