The result was that there was a great bitterness towards the new agent.. On one occasion he threatened to clear all the tenants out of Clogher and said, "I will have the district planted from Hussey's to The Covert by May Day". An old woman who heard his say this answered, "A great many things could happen between this and May Day" Her words were indeed prophetic for Bund was shot before May Day.
After the murder of Bund the Hussey family lived no longer in Rathkenny. They returned to their estate in Wales. The agents who came after Bund were much kinder; they built houses and had the rents lowered. The estate was sold to the Irish land Commission in the year 1906.
The Hussey family burial place was in Rathkenny Graveyard. The Hussey family were Catholics but in the middle of the eighteenth century they lost the faith.
