Description In 1786 Wilson refers to Cloghers as the seat of Richard Yielding. John Mulchinock was leasing two adjoining properties from the Colthurst estate at the time of Griffith's Valuation, one valued at £50 and the second at £15. The Irish Tourist Association Survey notes that Cloghers was "once the home of the Mulchinock family who were big landowners" and relates the story of the song "the Rose of Tralee". Bary writes that this property was associated with the Carrigue family in the eighteenth century and also that John Mulchinock was an uncle of William Mulchinock, author of the song. She indicates that it was later owned by the Fitzmaurice family. It is still extant.
