|Description:||At the time of Griffith's Valuation Ballyturin House was the residence of John Bagot. In 1906 John C. Bagot was the owner of the house which was valued at £17. It was located in a commanding position overlooking rolling countryside. In May 1921, an RIC man (District/Inspector Cecil Blake), his wife and two British Army officers (Capt Cornwallis and Lt McCreery) were killed in an ambush by South Galway/East Clare Irish Volunteers at the gates of Ballyturin House. Margaret, Mrs Robert Gregory of Coole Park (Lady Gregory's daughter-in-law) escaped without injury. Ballyturin is now a ruin.|
