    There were landlords in this district long ago.Lord Dunboyne ,was land lord of Knoppogue ,and Eddie O Brian was land lord of Moyriesh .Sir John Kean and Lord Limerick were the land lords of Quin.
    The people did not like these land-lords at all.Some of them were very wicked.The land-lords of Quin were quiet enough .They never evicted anyone The only evictions in Clare were the Bodyke evictions .There were also evictions in Broadford.
