The estate of the Mahons of Corbally was mainly in the parish of Clooney, barony of Bunratty Upper, county Clare, although they also held land in the parishes of Tulla, barony of Tulla Upper, and Kilmurry, barony of Ibrickan, at the time of Griffith’s Valuation. A number of family members were barristers. In the 1870s Thomas George Stacpoole Mahon of London owned 1,887 acres in county Clare and Mrs Charles Mahon of Burlington Road, Dublin, owned 1158 acres in the county. In July 1871 the sale of houses and premises in Ennis including Ashline Park and 280 acres at Honeymount in the barony of Ikerrin, county Tipperary, belonging to them was advertised for sale. Charles Mahon of Cahircalla, parish of Drumcliff, barony of Islands, county Clare, was a younger son of Charles Mahon of Corbally. He was married to Elizabeth Tymons or Timmins but died without heirs in 1874. Robert Mahon, brother of Charles of Cahircalla lived at nearby Ashline Park, Ennis. Their younger brother James Mahon was living in France when his life interest in various lands and premises in the Ennis locality were advertised for sale in July 1863.
