Glenosheen Bog Road
Daniel Barrington was employed as agent to the absentee landlord, Richard Oliver Gascoigne from 1825c. -1842. Barrington initiated the construction of the Glenosheen Bog Road in 1829. Prior to this he had used his influence with the Grand Jury of Co. Limerick to get presentment roads built through the estate and he now sought to connect these public roads to the bog on Seefin. Thomas Waldron, the overseer employed by Castle Oliver management on the Clovers and Glenosheen road building projects, was paid £15-2-8 in 1829. In the same year Daniel Alltimes of Glenosheen was paid £33-7-11 in three installments for the maintenance of the Glenosheen Bog road. On completion of the project Barrington expressed his satisfaction to the landlord and justified the expense incurred by claiming that as the Glenosheen bog was the only bog ‘that can be resorted to by tenants…it is very desirable that the entrance to this bog should be made easy which lies at the top of the highest mountain in that district of the county …I have now made it accessible from all parts of the estate and now the tenants feel it of the greatest advantage to them.’
