County Clare: A History and Topography 1837 by Samuel Lewis


A village, in the parish of Inchicronane, barony of Bunratty, county of Clare, and province of Munster, about 61/2 miles (N. N. E.) from Ennis, on the road to Gort ; containing 57 houses and 316 inhabitants. Fairs are held on the lands of "Brodagh by Crusheen" on Jan. 17th, May 20th, Aug. 15th, and Nov. 19th, for general farming stock. It is a constabulary police station, and has a dispensary. Petty sessions once a fortnight, and the road sessions for the district, are held here ; also a seneschal’s court occasionally for the manor of Bunratty, in which small debts are recoverable. The old R. C. chapel stands here, and a new one is now nearly completed : in the ancient burial-ground, Sir Theobald Butler, who framed the articles of the Treaty of Limerick, lies interred.-See Inchicronane.
