Kilkelly (Summerville) An estate, centred on the house originally known as Thomastown and later as Summerville, was in the possession of Daniel Moore Kilkelly in the 19th century. When advertised for sale by D.M. Kilkelly’s widow in the mid 1850s the estate consisted of 1,418 acres in the parish of Moylough, barony of Tiaquin, county Galway. A small portion of the estate including Summerville was advertised for sale again in 1864 by Maria E. Kilkelly and Anthony O’Kelly.
