Blennerhassett (Killorglin)

This branch of the Blennerhassett family acquired lands around Killorglin which had formerly been part of the Conway estate. The latter estates eventually passed through the female line to the Blennerhassetts though the marriage of Avice Conway, great-granddaugher of Jenkin Conway, to Robert Blennerhassett. The estate of Rowland Blennerhassett, of Kells Lodge, Cahirciveen, amounted to over 6000 acres in the 1870s. The Blennerhassett estate was one of the principal lessors in the parishes of Dromod, Killemlagh and Killinane, barony of Iveragh, and Killorglin, barony of Trughanacmy, at the time of Griffith's Valuation.
