Leslie (Tarbert)

The Leslies, descended from the Scottish clan, held lands in North Kerry since the seventeenth century. The estate of Robert Leslie of Tarbert amounted to over 1700 acres in county Kerry in the 1870s. The Leslies also held townlands in the parish of Kilnaughton, barony of Iraghticonnor at the time of Griffith's Valuation. The Leslie estates were sold to the tenants in the early 1900s.
