Photos and historical information about Rahelly townland and Rahelly House.

Originally built by Francis Barber, a tenant on the Gore-Booth Lissadell Estate in 1860 at a cost of £ 8.000, the Rahelly House was sold in 1885 and an agent to Gore-Booth, J.A Cooper resided there from 1900-1918. In early 1922 the Republicans used it as a Barracks. In August 1922 the National troops moved in. In 1923 the Black and Tans burnt down the main house.  The buildings have been recently restored in 2008.
