Description A "gentleman's seat" called Waburn is recorded here in the Ordnance Survey Name Books of the 1830s. Slater refers to Woburn as the seat of Henry Flanagan in 1846. Buildings in this townland valued at £15 were leased by Henry Flanagan from the Clanricarde estate in 1856. Woburn is still extant though disused.
