Description Abington House in the townland of Dromeliagh is marked on the first Ordnance Survey map. In 1786 Wilson states "at Abingdon, is a very pleasant seat of Sir Nicholas Lawless". At the time of Griffith's Valuation a house valued at £17 was occupied by Michael Apjohn in this townland. In the 1860s this house was occupied by John Connell Fitzgerald and his wife Margaret (Apjohn). ''The Limerick Chronicle'' of 1 Oct 1872 records the death of Mary Anne Apjohn of Abington House, widow of Michael Apjohn. The property was held from Lord Cloncurry. A ruined house is still extant at the site.
