Slate Quarries, Drimoleague, Sea Lodge Durrus, Kilcrohane, West Cork from Skibbereen and West Carbery Eagle or South Western Advertiser 1865/6, and Lead Mine 1310 Belamire, Durrus


West Cork History

There is a long history of mining in the Durrus/Mizen area. There is a reference c 1310 by Edmund Gould in the British History online papers to a lead mine in Belamire which is probably near Sea Lodge (Townland Gearhameen), Durrus.

The historic Ordnance Survey map c 1830 shows a Lead Mine in the vicinity of Clonee to the south of the present Bog Road from Durrus to Bantry.

This is from the local newspaper later known as ‘The Skibbereen Eagle’ notorious for ‘Keeping an eye on the Czar’ and later incorporated into the ‘Southern Star’.

1714 Lease of Part Of Lands in West Carbery from Henry Boyle to Darby Mahoney Excepting Mineral Rights Probably including Townlands at Ardgoena and Drumreagh Later Part of Evanson Durrus Estate.


1714 Lease of Part Of Lands in West Carbery from Henry Boyle to Darby Mahoney Excepting Mineral Rights Probably including Townlands at Ardgoena and Drumreagh Later Part of Evanson Durrus Estate.

 

This listing is probably in connection with litigation with the Evanson in the 1850s over mineral rights of Dromreagh and Ardgouena.

 

It was fairly common for the former owners of estates to appear as tenants or middle men in the 18th century. It is possible that Darby Mahoney is of the same O’Mahony line the original owners who mortgaged the lands to Boyle in the early 17th century.

1731. Purchase by Colonel Tonson of Lisacaha, Schull, West Cork from Burlington Estate (Successors to Boyle, Great Earl of Cork) Reserving Manor Court of Ballydehob).

1731.  Purchase by Colonel Tonson of Lisacaha, Schull, West Cork from Burlington Estate (Successors to Boyle, Great Earl of Cork) Reserving Manor Court of Ballydehob).

It is likely that Boyle acquired most of the Mizen Peninsula from the O’Mahonys and O’Driscolls by mortgage default.  He was often criticised for his legal chicanery and his actions contributed to the general uprising in West Cork in 1641.

The Tonsons purchases were litigated in the 1850s as to whether the mineral right were included or not.  At that stage the area had promising mineral deposits.

The Tonsons are likely Hulls of Lemcon Castle Schull name changed to inherit property.

In the late 17th early 18th century the Devonshire/Boyle/Burlington Estate was jointly managed by Jeremiah/Jeremy Coughlan, from Carrigmanus a Protestant Attorney and Seneschal of Dungarvan and Andrew Crotty a Catholic. Coughlan’s  married a sister of Nathaniel Evanson of Durrus and they jointly rented ploughlands at Durrus from The Bernards (later Earls of Bandon).

The Manor Court was still in operation in the early 19th century and came in for adverse comment by John Jagoe of Bantry:
