Tureen House, Currofin, Asollas

TUREEN, the Seat of AUGUSTINE FITZ GERALD Esq; lies two Miles East of ENNIS; is an elegant situation—beautifully improved both by Art and Nature—the House and Offices are regular and compact, agreeably built on the gentle ascent of a Verdant Eminence, from whence are visible some Parts of the Counties of KERRY, LIMERICK, and GALWAY, and the major Part of this County.

Here Hospitality and Christian Love,
With all the Social Virtues from above
Unite, with zeal, poor Objects to caress;
And relieve all encumber’d with Distress.

CURROFIN, in the Barony of INCHIQUIN, situate near that fair and spacious Lake of that Name, is an handsome, compact, Town, with a good Market House, and from its agreeable situation, is generally accommodated with some material conveniencies.

ASOLLAS, in the Barony of BUNRATTY, for many Years famous for Capital Race-Horses and a commanding Race Course, is a small, clean Viliage, agreeably situated, and saluted by the rapid and celebrated River of KILLTENNAN, which springs at AILL, in the Upper Part of the Barony of TULLA, and falls below DROMOLAND into the FERGUS.
