Description At the time of Griffith's Valuation the house at Knockadoo was occupied by Meredith Thompson and was valued at £11. McTernan indicates that it had previously been owned by the Savage family and sold to the Thompsons in the 1840s, leaseholders since the eighteenth century. In the 1880s, Knockadoo was sold to the Heather family who ran a horse-breeding business there until the 1930s when the property was acquired by the Land Commission. The house was subsequently damaged by fire but has been extensively restored in recent times.
