Name Description
Doolan At the time of Griffith's Valuation, Thomas Doolan was leasing a property valued at £20 in the parish of Lickmolassy, barony of Longford, to Charles Cooper. In February 1861 Doolan's estate at Fairy Hill was offered for sale in the Landed Estates Court. It was purchased by Louis Goodbody of Clara for £1000. The property was held under lease in perpetuity from Shewbridge to Doolan, dated November 1794. Shewbridge held for the Clanricarde estate.
Shewbridge In 1856 Anne Shewbridge was leasing a property in the townland of Gowil, parish of Lickmolassy, barony of Longford, to John Cunningham. Local sources suggest that a William Shewbridge served as a Church of Ireland curate in Portumna in the 1760s while genealogical sources note a marriage in 1779 between a Mary Eyre of Eyrecourt and a Mr. Shewbridge.
