The townland is totally deserted now. Three houses – all empty. All three in various stages of decay or part repair. When Constable Michael Madden came on Tuesday 4 April 1911 to collect the census form there were three households then also, but with eleven, eight and six people respectively. All Catholic. When I walked there this evening, one hundred and one years later, only swallows and memories.
