Landed Estates
NUI Galway


The Irwin estate at Tanrego was purchased by Verschoyle in the 1860s. According to the OS name books the Verschoyles had previously held land in the parishes of Kilglass and Kilmoremoy, Barony of Tireragh. Rev. Joseph Verschoyle held Glebe lands in the parish of Kilmoremoy and occupied buildings valued at £30 in 1857. In 1906 Richard J. Verschoyle is listed as the occupier of lands at Tanrego East including the mansion house. In 1912 an offer was accepted from the Congested Districts Board for the purchase of over 1200 acres of the Verschoyle estate.
