Landed Estates
NUI Galway


A family with a large estate in the Tuam area of county Galway, centred on Tullinadaly Castle, which they forfeited after the Jacobite Wars. Edward Wilson of Tuam and Edward Crow of Carrowkeel, county Galway, bought parts of the Lally estate but most of it appears to have been acquired by the Vesey family. An estate centred on the house at Ballygaddy in the parish of Kilbennan, barony of Dunmore, county Galway, was held by the Lally family in the early 19th century. By the time of Griffith's Valuation John Daly occupied this property which he held from Nesbitt Kirwan.
