Fallon (Runnamoat)

[In 1677 Edmund Fallon of Mote, county Roscommon was granted a small acreage in the barony of Tiaquin, county Galway]. The Fallons were established at Runnamoat from the early 18th century. In 1852 part of the Fallon estate at Attirory in the barony of Moycarn was offered for sale in the Encumbered Estates Court. In 1865 John Fallon married Cecilia daughter of Thomas Lynch of Lavally and granddaughter of Thomas Tighe of Newford, county Galway. Following legal proceedings he was given one third of the Netterville estate in county Galway belonging to Marcella Gerrard. In the 1870s John Fallon of Netterville Lodge owned 2,594 acres in county Galway and 87 in King's county (county Offaly). 2,045 acres belonging to Mrs Fallon were vested in the Congested Districts' Board on 21 Mar 1905.
