"Kilcornan House, original home of the Redingtons, the local benevolent landlords, with its impressive avenue. The house now serves as a training centre for people with learning disabilities. The Redingtons of Kilcornan, were responsible for the development and design of the pretty village which has at its heart a walled village green in which stands an imposing cenotaph to Thomas N. Redington. Kilcornan was originally a 16th century castle of Ulick de Burgo. The Redington family built a fine mansion around it in the 1830's, incorporating the old tower in it's fabric."
