At the time of Griffith's Valuation Isabella Short held the lands of Cloontakilla and Attavally and also part of Atticonaun in the parish of Kilcommon, barony of Erris, county Mayo. Noone makes reference to Atticonaun having been in the possession of Major Charles Short and his family from the 1830s. Cloontakilla and Attavally were originally leased by Sir Arthur Shaen to Francis Nash in 1724 and were advertised for sale in the Encumbered Estates' Court in May 1858.
