The Weir family held an estate close to Lough Arrow at Doonsheeheen centred on Lakeview House. They may have acted as agents for the Keogh family who also had lands in the area. There was a bitter legal battle relating to the ownership and succession rights to the estate in the late 19th century. The estate was eventually sold in the Land Judges' Court in 1883.
