The home of the Atkinson family, Wilson notes in 1786 that it was the residence of Charles Atkinson and "very pleasantly situated". It was occupied by the rector of Crossmolina, the Reverend Edwin Stock, for a few years prior to 1815. Rahans was described in 1855 as "a comfortable dwelling house, in a fair state of repair" and occupied by Mrs Frances Atkinson. At the time of Griffith's Valuation it was the home of George Orme. In 1925 Adelaide R. Orme of New South Wales sold Rahans demesne to Patrick J. Ruttledge of Ballina for £3,000, [see Acc. 1165/8/11 National Archives.] It is no longer extant.
