O'Callaghan

Cornelius O'Callaghan, a lawyer in the early 18th century, married Marie Jolley. Their grandson, also named Cornelius, of Shanbally, county Tipperary, was created Baron Lismore of Shanbally in 1785. His son became a Viscount in 1806. By the mid 19th century the county Cork estate of Viscount Lismore was mainly in the parishes of Clonmeen and Kilshannig, barony of Duhallow, county Cork. He held this property from the Earl of Kingston. He also held land in the parish of Castlemagner. The county Tipperary estate of Viscount Lismore was principally in the parish of Shanrahan (23 townlands) but he also had land in the parishes of Ballybacon, Tubbrid, Tullaghorton and Whitechurch, barony of Iffa and Offa West, Lisronagh and Temple-etney, barony of Iffa and Offa East, Kiltinan, barony of Middlethird, Killardry, barony of Clanwilliam, Doon and Toem, barony of Kilnamanagh Upper and Terryglass, barony of Lower Ormond. In the 1870s Viscount Lismore owned 34,945 acres in county Tipperary, 6,067 acres in county Cork and 1,194 acres in county Limerick. Griffith's Valuation records the Viscount holding the townland of Feohanagh, 1,196 acres in the parish of Mahoonagh, barony of Glenquin, county Limerick.
