McParlan described the Coolavin of 1802 as a "delightful retreat". The house at Clogher was offered for sale as part of the McDermott estate in 1852. By the time of Griffith's Valuation it was occupied by Joseph Holmes and was valued at £16. In 1906 Coolavin was valued at £35. The house now known as Coolavin was built in the 1890s replacing an earlier house near the same location. This latter house is still extant and occupied. The original house at Clogher is now derelict.
