In the early part of the 19th century Moyne Lodge, part of the estate of the Blakes of Merlin Park, in the parish of Shrule, barony of Kilmaine, county Mayo, was occupied by Richard Golding, the proprietor of a large corn mill, brewery and distillery in the village of Shrule. He held some land in the vicinity, including Liss in the parish of Killeany, barony of Clare and townlands in the parishes of Addergoole and Dunmore, barony of Dunmore, county Galway and was agent to the Lewins at Cloghans.
