Tullamaine Castle was the home of John Power, father of the 1st Sir John Power, Baronet. Leet records J.D. Scully as resident at Tullaghmain-castle, Fethard, in 1814. This was James Scully (1779-1853), fourth son of Jeremiah Scully of Silverfort. By 1837 Lewis records John Maher as resident though the Ordnance Survey Name Books in 1840 refer to the proprietor as a Mr. Walsh. By the time of Griffith's Valuation Maher is recorded as holding the property in fee. The buildings were valued at £44.16s. By the mid 1870s Tullamaine Castle belonged to Henry Maynard Harding who advertised it for sale in July 1880. Slater still refers to it as his property in 1894. Dr M.J.

A member of the Blunden family was living at "Turkla" close to Thurles in the 1770s. William Nicholson was living at Turtola in 1814. Lewis writes in 1837 that it was the property of Valentine Maher but that John B. O'Brien was resident. A flour mill was located on the property. In 1840 the Ordnance Survey Name Books record a Mr. Lister in charge of the mill. They refer to Valentine Maher as the proprietor. By the time of Griffith's Valuation Nicholas Maher was the occupier. He held the property from the Court of Chancery and the buildings were valued at £50+. Nicholas had succeeded his cousin Valentine in 1844 and died without heirs in 1871. Turtulla then became the home of the Barry family from county Limerick. It was unoccupied from 1927 to 1944 when it was purchased by the Thurles golf club and has been their club house since then. see http://www.thurlesgolfclub.com/cluboverview.html
