For most of the fourteen years that Fr. John Murphy was a curate in Boolavogue he lived with John O’Donohoe and his family in this house in Tomnaboley, Boolavogue. That house was destroyed in the rebellion and rebuilt afterwards. It was used until the late 19th. century and then fell into disrepair. It was restored as part of the commemoration of the bicentennial of the rebellion in 1998. It is situated in a restored farmyard which includes a cowhouse, pigsty, dairy, stable, and labourers’ lodge. The haggard, beside the farmyard, contains a range of farm machinery, ploughs, harrows and sowers from the 19th. and 20th. century. Some of them were made in Wexford, in Pierce’s, in the Star Engineering Works and in Thompsons. The sheds have examples of hand tools used in farming in bygone days.
