Kilmorie Smallholding’s History
Kilmorie smallholding has a very interesting history built in 1848 by Fergus O’Connor who set up “The Chartist Land Company” to build smallholdings consisting of a cottage and 2, 3 or four acres of land. Fergus O’ Connors ideal was that a man could support his family from his own land. Kilmorie is one of the original smallholdings, still has it’s land and is grade 2 listed. We are also in a conservation area.
