Lysaght (Woodmount)

Weir writes that George Lysaght lived at Woodmount, parish of Kilmanaheen, county Clare, in the late 18th century and that the house and trees were destroyed at the end of the century. At the time of Griffith's Valuation George Lysaght held 5 townlands in the parish of Kilcorney, barony of Bureen and also land in the parishes of Kitoraght and Kilmanaheen barony of Corcomroe. In 1854 he advertised Croagh South for sale and in 1858 Woodmount. In the 1870s George Lysaght of Rathmines, Dublin, owned 663 acres in county Clare. The estate of George Lysaght and George Lingard Lysaght in the parish of Kilcorney, barony of Burren, amounting to about 700 acres was advertised for sale in November 1877.
