Weir writes that Charles Creagh and his wife went to live at Carrowbane, parish of Kilmaleery, barony of Bunratty Lower, county Clare, in 1719. Their grandson James Creagh married Anne Vandeleur of Ralahine in 1776 and had five sons and four daughters. Their eldest son Charles lived at Carrigerry, parish of Kilconry, barony of Bunratty Lower and his eldest daughter Mary held lands in the parishes of Kilconry and Kilnasoolagh, barony of Bunratty Lower, Clooney, barony of Bunratty Upper and Kilnamona, barony of Inchiquin at the time of Griffith’s Valuation. Mary Creagh lived at Carrigerry and died in 1860. Her 2,141 acre estate including Carrigerry was advertised for sale in May 1860. Captain James Creagh, fourth son of James Creagh, lived at Carrowbane and held three townlands in the parish of Kilmaleery in the mid 19th century. Captain James Creagh of London owned 388 acres in the 1870s.
