Description McTernan indicates that Maj. De Bromhead is the reputed builder of Cairnsfoot, probably in the early decades of the nineteenth century, when he leased the lands from the Cooper estate. He had married Judith Wood in 1823. In the 1840s he returned to England and the house was let to a number of different families, notably the O'Connors. In 2004 it was partially destroyed by fire and subsequently demolished.
