A small estate in the parish of Kilbelfad, barony of Tirawley, county Mayo, held by a junior branch of the Ormsby family of Gortnaraby. At the time of Griffith's Valuation they were leasing from Edward S. Pery. In 1876 the estate amounted to 553 acres. In the mid 19th century another family member, Duke Ormsby, held two townlands in the parish of Doonfeeny.
