Description Burke's ''Landed Gentry of Ireland'' (1904) records Philip Going of Monaquil, sixth son of Robert and Jane Going. In 1767 Philip married Grace Bernard. Their grandson, Reverend Philip Going Atkins Going, succeeded to the Monaquil property by the will of his maternal grandfather, who died in 1820. Monaquil was occupied by the Atkins family in 1837. In 1840 the Ordnance Survey Name Books record that "Mr. O'Shea, proprietor, states that he has nothing to do now ith Monaquil, it is under the Courts" and that the house was then occupied by a Mrs. Bennett. It was vacant at the time of Griffith's Valuation. when Reverend Hastings Atkins was the immediate lessor and the house was valued at £19. The Butler sale rental of 1866 records a fee farm grant dated 19 May 1859, John Butler to Reverend Philip Going Atkins Going. The Atkins sale rental of 1877 records the leasing of Monaquil to Robert William Henry Roe in 1864. The original house marked on the first edition Ordnance Survey Map was replaced by another house slightly to the north in the late 19th century.
