Description Declan Tracy was leasing this property from the Kennedy estate at the time of Griffith's Valuation, when it was valued at over £12. Smith refers to it as "Pilltown, not long since the estate of the Walshes". The house is labelled Pilltown House on the 25-inch map of the 1890s. It is no longer extant. Tracy is noted as the owner of over 450 acres in county Waterford in the 1870s. A substantial mill, valued at £39, in the same townland was being leased by Peter Moore Fisher [X129800]. It was included in the sale of Fisher property in the Landed Estates Court in November 1865. The mill appears to have fallen into disuse by the end of the nineteenth century though the ruins remain.
