(1828), there are several plantations and a registered fox cover that was built in 1840, most of which was part of the work that was known as the famine relief work. There after Thomas Rutherford acquired the land in 1848, followed by the Moore family in 1896 till it was purchased by the present owner Sean McKenna in 1988.
