Kirwan (Hillsbrook)

The Kirwans of Hillsbrook, a branch of the Kirwans of Cregg, were established in the parish of Killererin, barony of Clare, county Galway, by the late 17th century. Their estate of 2,264 acres was advertised for sale in the Encumbered Estates Court in 1855 but was not sold as the same acreage was advertised again in 1863. A newspaper cutting, with the sale rental of 1863 in the National Archives, gives details of the sale of five lots to three purchasers, a Mr Burke, Mr E. Bradley and Patrick Joseph Kelly. The remaining lots were offered for sale again in November 1864.
