Weir writes that John Hartigan of Manusmore was the Clare County Surveyor. He died in 1756. Manusmore was occupied by Thomas Lynch in 1814 and by Terence Healy at the time of Griffith's Valuation. Other occupiers in the latter half of the 19th century were George Walton and Hugh Tarpey. The McInerneys of Ennis bought the farm in the 1890s and have lived there for over a hundred years.
