Guilfoyle

At the time of Griffith's Valuation, Thomas Guilfoyle was one of the principal lessors in the parish of Skreen, barony of Tireragh. In 1906 Anthony Guilfoyle is recorded as the occupier of property at Lecarrow townland, barony of Tireragh, including a mansion house. McTernan states that the Sligo family were descended from that of Gilfoyle of Killenaule, county Tipperary, members of whom first came to Sligo in the late eighteenth century and engaged in the linen trade.
