Landed Estates
NUI Galway


A Christopher Tirrel was granted over 750 acres in the barony of Ballintober, county Roscommon in 1680. The Tyrrells held in fee 882 acres of the lands of Annagh and 419 acres of Liscat leased from Viscount Dillon. These lands, which were in the parish of Aghamore, barony of Costello, county Mayo, were advertised for sale in the Encumbered Estates' Court on 27 Nov 1857. Liscat was sold but the Tyrrells held on to Annagh, as they still owned 881 acres in county Mayo in 1876. The remainder of the Curran-Tyrell estate was sold to the Congested Districts' Board on 19 Feb 1902.
