Description Tradition locally suggests Scartagh Cottage was originally the property of the Townsend family. By the time of Griffith's Valuation, it was being leased by Henry Galway to Matthew O'Hea. Various members of the Galway family held small amounts of land in the area while Matthew O'Hea, of the War Office, London, is recorded as the owner of 70 acres in county Cork in the 1870s. Scartagh Cottage has been replaced by a convent on the 25-inch Ordnance Map towards the end of the nineteenth century and that building is still extant.
