Union of Noughaval and Carrune

IX. Modes of Agriculture, Crops, &c.

The rent of the land differs extremely in these parishes, owing to the rockiness of by much the greater part of the soil. In Noughaval the best land lets at about four pounds per acre; the second quality at about two pounds, and the third quality at about thirty shillings: in Carrune the best at about two pounds; the second quality at about one pound, and the third, at about ten shillings per acre.

The small share of agriculture is of the old mode; they make their manure from straw and fern; the stock is mostly sheep, but in some parts where the land is good, cows are fattened. There are neither markets nor fairs in these parishes.
