Reddy's Cottage KILTOOM

Share This:

This thatched house near Cregga in Kiltoom was built circa 1860. 

In 1858, at the time of Griffith's Valuation, the original homestead on this site [#11a Moyvannan no longer extant] was registered in the name of William Reddy.  The "new" thatch house you see today was at that time attached to the old house (which then probably became an outbuilding).  

 In 1851, William Reddy godparents for Mark Tracy & Mary Anne Reddy in Ballybay RC parish aka Kiltomb.

At the time of the 1901 Census, all but one house in this townland (the squire's) were thatched.
