At the time of Griffith's Valuation, Rev. Edward Walsh was leasing this property from Daniel Coltsman [Cronin], when it was valued at £17. In 1837 Lewis notes that Rathmore House was the property of D. Cronin but "now occupied by a society of monks". These were Cistercian monks, afterwards located at Mount Mellerey in county Waterford. The Cronins had lived at Rathmore until the early years of the nineteenth century before leasing it to the Order. After the monks departed it was used as the local presbytery and part of it is still extant.
Denis Glissane was leasing a house in the same location from the Cronin estate, valued at £8.
