At the time of Griffith's Valuation members of the Sadlier family held lands in the parishes of Oola and Templebredon, barony of Coonagh, and Galbally, barony of Coshlea, county Limerick. In July 1857 the mansion house and demesne of Coolnamuck, county Waterford and lands in the baronies of Middlethird, county Tipperary and Coonagh, county Limerick, the estate of James Sadlier, were advertised for sale. George McDowell, official manager of the Tipperary Bank was the petitioner. A lithograph of Coolnamuck House is included in the sale rental.
