Originally known as Balliston House, this early 19th century house was the home of the Murray family. Terence Aubrey Murray was born here in 1810. He was the son of Captain Terence Murray who emigrated to New South Wales, Australia, in 1828. In 1843 Terence A. Murray became MP for New South Wales and in 1869 was granted a knighthood. He died in 1873. Yarralumla, Sir Terence Murray's home in New South Wales, is now the residence of the Governor General of Australia. Ballysteen was inhabited by James Murray in the early 1850s who held the property from the Earl of Clare. The house was valued at £11+ at that time. The Murrays continued to live here until the early 20th century. In the early 1920s, during the War of Independence, the IRA used the house as its local headquarters. Though still extant the house has fallen into disuse.
