You can see he wouldn't have been too popular... With 1000's dying/starving he robbed their food!!

Amongst the most active of these were Major Bingham and his son William; and there were now in Court the letters of William, .admitting that potatoes sent over for the relief of the poor were used as seed- potatoes in planting lands belonging to Major Bingham.


With Cholera/Typhus rampant when he died going anywhere near a graveyard would be the last thing anyone would do.

You can see O'Connell targeted him! Hence the Lyons case.

So now you'll have somewhere to stay...

The house was part of the Bingham estate and my husband, whose mother was a Bingham, is the last person from that family to live here permanently. He is hugely knowledgeable about local history and is happy to talk (when he is not working).

Hi Hallmark ... Thanks for all the info ... now time to start planning the trip .. a bit nervous about being a bingham especially on this line and the history ... I have just put some emails out to Mayo Council and historic groups should they identify any graves that are legible etc ... We have eighteen months to arrange all so plenty of time ... Have to make contact with the family at the Airbnb .. sounds informative
Kind regards ...
