In Kiltinan Castle, in the parish of Killusty there lived about three generations of the Cooke[?] and they owned a big property, and had a lot of tenanted land. They were very harsh landlords, having evicted a big number of families, now living on Slievenamon, are those whose ancestors were evicted from their homes in Kiltinan property and put to live on the mountain and had to reclaim the land they now own.
