Broadford, Callaghan’s Mills, Tulla

From CRATLOE to THOMOND GATE, and round along the River SHANNON to O’BRIEN’S BRIDGE (8) and KILLALOE, is a long Scope of choice Ground, well Stock’d and Cultivated, Improv’d and Ornamented with several excellent Habitations and elegant Lodges.

BROADFORD, near the Eastern extremity of this County, lies bordering on a fertile Valley, almost surrounded by a Ridge of Mountains, and considering its situation is a pretty Village.

CALLAGHAN’S MILLS, nearly Midway between BROADFORD and TULLA, is a small, clean, Village and Fair-Place; it’s situation open and agreeable; it takes it’s Name from Daniel O’Callaghan Esq; who was (agreeable to the Laws of the Lord Protector) Transplanted from his Original and Extensive Estate in DUHALLOW, in the County of CORK, to this Country; He was, in a Paternal Line, descended from the renown’d CALLAGHAN CASHILL—and Lineal Predecessor to the present EDMOND O’CALLAGHAN Esq; a respectable Young Gentleman, Senior and Chief of that Heroic, Eugenian Sept.

TULLA, the Capital of a Barony, is a compact, pretty, Market Town, with a large Market-House, a wide, open, Street, and some good Buildings; from it’s advantageous situation, Name and Improvement, it may be justly call’d an handsome, rising, Village; it really affords a commanding Prospect of the agreeable adjacent Country for many Miles, and is in the Centre of a rich and respectable Neighbourhood.
