Description Raheen is associated with both the Kilkelly and O'Hara families. In the 1770s it seems to have been a residence of the Taylor family, with whom the O'Haras intermarried. In the 1830s the OS Name Books record it as "a neat house, in form like a cottage two stories high." Raheen House was badly damaged by fire in the latter part of the twentieth century. The entrance gateway is still extant.
