The landlord of this property namely, Kylevalla, Grangebeg and Kilurney was Lord Ormonde Butler. He was one of the best land lords of his time and had the rupation of never evicting a Widow for non payment of rent on his property. When the time came for purchase which meant reducing the rent, he was one of the first to settle with his tenants, under what was called the Ashbourne Act at the time, and what is still known to be the best.
