Daly (Killimordaly)

This branch of the Dalys are derived from Teige Fitzdermot O'Daly who built Killimor Castle in the 1620s. In the 1790s, the Daly estate, from which Killimordaly gets its name, passed to Anastasia Daly who married John Devereux of Ballyrankin, county Wexford. Their son, Rev. Nicholas Devereux, was the landlord of a substantial estate around Killimordaly before and after the Famine. Clooncagh is recorded as the residence of Thomas Daly in 1814. In June 1854 the Clooncah (also spelt Cloncha and Cloncagh) estate of Phillip Daly was offered for sale in the Encumbered Estates Court. An earlier sale in March 1854 had included Daly lands at Duckloon, barony of Kilconnell. At the time of Griffith's Valuation Rathville House in the parish of Killimordaly was leased by John Daly to John H. Blake. John Daly was one of the principal lessors in the parish.
