Woodview House and 89 acres, the property of Richard Gore Daly, were offered for sale in the Encumbered Estates court in June 1857.

Richard Gore Daly of Woodview was the son of Hyacinth Richard Daly of Mount Pleasant, county Galway, a branch of the Raford family. In the 1860s Hyacinth Richard Daly owned 130 acres in fee simple at Bellgrove, parish of Finnoe, barony of Lower Ormond, county Tipperary. This estate was offered for sale in June and November 1863.
