Description Formerly an O'Rourke castle, Clooncorrick was held by several other families, notably the Irwins, before being bought by Pierce Simpson in 1835. In 1814 it is recorded as the residence of Rev. Agar. At the time of Griffith's Valuation it was being leased by Pierce Simpson from the Ormsby Gore estate and was valued at £40. Lewis also records it as the seat of the Simpson family in 1837. In the 1930s the castle was dismantled and the fittings sold. The ITA survey in the 1940s recorded that the castle had recently been demolished. For more information on Clooncorrick see http://homepage.eircom.net/~carrigallen/clooncorrick.html
