Robert John Palmer was in possession of this house at the time of Griffith's Valuation, when it was valued at £17 15s. In 1837 Lewis notes it as the seat of R.J. Palmer. Leet records it as the seat of Thomas O'Halloran in 1814. Bary notes that it was in the possession of the Palmer family from the eighteenth to the early twentieth century and was the site of a soup kitchen during the Famine. It is now a ruin. In some sources it is known as Baunmore House. Robert John Palmer of Listowel was the son of John Grove Palmer, attorney and advocate on the island of Bermuda and grandson of John Palmer of Lincoln's Inn and Limerick city (''The Gentleman's Magazine'' Vol 102, Part I, 569).
