Towards the western termination of the parish there are several flourishing plantations, which form part of the Earl of Clare's demesne. The principal seats are Thornfield, the residence of Major-Gen. Sir R. Bourke; Woodsdown, of Major Gough; Mulcaher, of the Rev.
J. Crampton; and Rich Hill, of W. Howly, Esq. It is a rectory and vicarage, in the diocese of Killaloe, forming part of the union of Castleconnell: the tithes amount to £271. 14. 93/4. The church was destroyed in the war of 1641, and was rebuilt, but is now in ruins.
In the R. C. divisions it is also part of the union or district of Castleconnell, and has a large new chapel at Ahane. About 200 children are educated in three schools, to one of which Gen, Bourke, who built the school-house, subscribes £14 annually. Here is a dispensary, connected with that of Castleconnell.
