NUI Galway


The Carrowntryla estate of the Handcock family near Dunmore, county Galway, was mortgaged to Sir Henry Lopez and Mr Fitzwilliam Hume Dick and was taken over by them in 1897. W.W. Fitzwilliam Hume Dick had died in 1892 and his nephew and heir Captian Quintin Hume Dick bought out the other mortgagee. Captain Dick is recorded as occupying Carrowntryla in 1904 and 1906. James Greaney writes that the Land Commission took over the estate in 1914.
