Cornaseer

The property of Lord Farnham and is let to 8 occupying tenants on leases of 3 lives

or 31 years. at a rent of from 15 to 25s. per acre. It is chargeable with Co. Cess by the carvagh, from 1s. 8d. to 2s. per acre and tithes 6d. per acre annually. Inhabitants are 12 Protestants and 52 Roman Catholics. The usual crops are oats, potatoes and flax. The only object of curiosity is what the peasantry call Clough Ghrana or Grana's stone said to have been the place where Diarmud and Grana used to sleep at night. The most probable conjecture is that it was a Druidical altar in former days. It is said to have been surrounded by a circle of stones with their ends fastened in the ground but more state that it is the Grave of Giants or some ancient Irish heroes of whom such extraordinary facts are related by the Irish peasantry. The children of this townland attend school in the townland of Kollycannor.
