My ancestors - Casey - Contents


--- Casey,
of Clogheen, Shanrahan par, S Co.Tipperary (SW of Clonmel, near Co.Waterford border, see 1887 to 1913 map and modern map),
[Pat Lavelle] said Casey had a woollen mill in Clogheen: "In Clogheen .. just under the mountain pass that leads to Mount Mellary there is a woollen mill in ruins. This was known up to 1800 as Murray's Mill. It was willed to Margaret Casey of Clogheen about the year 1825 by her uncle. The story goes that somehow she never came into this legacy.",

Pat is referring to "Manor Mill" on the SE road out of Clogheen, Co.Tipperary (see 1887 to 1913 map),
this was Murray's Mill, owned by Murray as at 1839 [O'Riordan, 2010],
Murray lived in nearby Glenleigh House to the SW (see 1887 to 1913 map), Murray sold the mill to Fennell in 1847 [O'Riordan, 2010],
however there is no evidence that Pat is right that Casey or Foley were connected to it,

Clogheen was a centre for milling, and there are various ruined mills there today,
NOT of Clogheen, Kilronan par, N Co.Waterford (near Ballymacarbry, S of Clonmel, across the Waterford border, see 1887 to 1913 map and modern map),
had issue:

  1. Honor Casey,
    mar ---- Foley [of Clogheen] and had issue.

Manor Mill (Murray's Mill) on the road out of Clogheen, Co.Tipperary, heading in direction of Mount Melleray.
From 1887 to 1913 map.
Pat Lavelle thought this was connected to Casey or Foley.
Not much left today. See modern map and street view.

Manor Mill (part of) and Lamberts' House, on Convent Road, Clogheen.
Apparently this view today.
