French (Rocklawn)

The French estate amounted to over 800 acres in the 1870s including the townlands of Cloon and Pollaghrevagh in the parish of Claregalway, barony of Dunkellin. By 1906 Richard French was the owner of over 160 acres of untenanted land in the area. Following land agitation in the area the French family left Rocklawn.
