O'Callaghan (Ballinahinch)

Weir writes that Ballinahinch, parish of Kilnoe, county Clare, belonged to the O'Callaghans from the 17th century. Cornelius O'Callaghan, fourth son of Cornelius O'Callaghan of Kilgory, lived at Ballinahinch from the beginning of the 19th century. His son Charles G. O'Callaghan held the property in fee at the time of Griffith's Valuation. Charles George O'Callaghan owned a large estate at this time, located mainly in the parishes of Quin and Templemaley, barony of Bunratty Upper and Tulla, barony of Tulla Upper, but also including land in the baronies of Inchiquin and Tulla Lower. In the 1870s C. G. O'Callaghan of Ballinahinch owned over 8,000 acres in county Clare.
