Kilskeagh, Athenry by Ronan Killeen

As I was in my local pub one night J. Glynn's on Old Church st. I was requested when I will do Kilskeagh, Athenry. Well I am going to do it now. It will be short as Kilskeagh, Athenry has its own history page by Fiona Gavin http://kilskeagh.com/html/history-fiona_gavin.html.

What I will do though is write about the people in Kilskeagh in the 19th Century using Griffith's Valuation. In 1855 Michael Hennelly who owned 384 acres 1 root 1 perch his landlord was Robert Browne. £151 on his land and 10 shillings on his buildings.
Marcus Loughnane owned offices and land at 192 acres 1 root 24 perch, £22 on his land and 10 shillings on his buildings. His land lord was also Robert Browne.

Below is the Robert Browne family tree link from the Landed Estates research NUIG have done.

You can read a lot more on Fiona Gavin's page above.
