Description At the time of Griffith's Valuation Lewis Jones was leasing Woodhill house, valued at £25, at Knockaculleen, barony of Tireragh, from Anne Jones. When the property was offered for sale in the Landed Estates Court in May 1875 the house is described as " a handsome modern residence valued at £30". The Wingfield King estate sold their interest in the property in 1879 and the sale notice mentions Thaddeus Tiernan as occupying the house at that time. In 1906 a house here valued at £20 was the property of Thaddeus Tiernan. McTernan states that this gentleman had amassed a fortune in Australia and South America. He became involved in public life, including Board of Guardians and County Council, on taking up residence at Woodhill. The house is still owned by his descendents.
