“The surrounding estates,”
remarks Mr. Fraser,
“particularly the large tract of land possessed by the Earl of Darnley, as also the late estates of Lord Sherborne, have been highly improved; and the comfortable farm houses and good husbandry cannot fail to attract the attention of the traveller, and make some amends for the flat and featureless country between this point and Trim.”

Tithe composition belonging to the incumbent, £24 18s. 5 1/4d. The rectorial tithes are of unknown value, and are impropriate in James O'Reilly, Esq.
