Killeigh and Geashillwere the headquarters of ancient Offaly and were ruled by the O’Connors. Under these were various sub-chiefs, notably the O’Dunnes and the O’Dempseys. The area we now call Offaly did not exist before the English invasion of Ireland. Present-day County Offaly was created by an English Decree and was known as the King’s County. The name Kings County was changed to County Offaly after Ireland gained its independence.  The ancient Kingdom of Offaly did not have Tullamore within it at any time. The O ’Dempsey clan were big land owners in the area and it is reported that the road way which runs through this farm continued onto O ‘Dempseys castle and it is on this land that Lord O ‘Dempsey trained his horses.  He considered this land some of the best in his enormous estate.  The soil has a high clay content and full of nutrients renowned for fattening.


“If this land was considered some of the best by the former Chief of Clanmalier well you cant get a higher recommendation than that!”
