1841, Working Model of Locomotive Steam Engine by Robert Nash, Brinny. He is bound to Gregory, Dublin, Civil Engineer.



John Nash, Esq., Brinny,  1829 member Bandon Brunswick Club.  Brinny House was being leased by J.H. Wheatley to Rev. George Nash at the time of Griffith’s Valuation, when it was valued at £30. In October 1854, it, together with the rest of Nash’s property at Brinny, was offered for sale in the Encumbered Estates Court. The house is described in the sale notice as “in good repair”. Lewis refers to it as the seat of J. Nash in 1837. In the late 1770s and 1780s it was the residence of Nash esq. In 1942 the Irish Tourist Association Survey referred to “a semi-derelict old mansion near Brinny Bridge, the reputed residence of Seán Dearg Nash, tyrannical provost of Bandon, 1690-1724″The Nash family seem to have become established in the Bandon area in the seventeenth century. Local sources suggest they may have been from Somerset. His eldest son John married 1844 Mary, daughter of Rev.  Somes Payne.

1877. 650 Men Working Night and Day to Open Skibbereen Railway

1877 the Cork Examiner report July 1877 of the opening of the Skibbereen railway reported that it was financed by a Cork Grand Jury Baronial advance of £53,000 at 5%, a Treasury loan of £40,000 and that a significant proportion of that  was expended on the Parliamentary process to enable an authorising Act in London.  The solicitors involved in London,  Norton Rose still extant.

In the prospectus for the projected Bandon to Bantry Railway in 1845 the promoters said the cost of moving freight from Skibbeeen or Bantry to Cork was £1 per ton. Wiht the opening of the railway they anticipted the cost would drop to just over 6 shilings per ton.
