Charles L. Sandes was leasing this property to William Hickie at the time of Griffith's Valuation, when it was valued at £33. Bary writes that this Hickie family were originally from Tulla, county Clare, but moved here after the Cromwellian confisciation of the 1650s. They remained in possession of the property until the 1920s. The Irish Tourist Association survey mentions that it was formerly the home of the Higgins-O'Connor family but by the 1940s was in poor repair. The original house is now a ruin.
