However it has been associated with the largest landed families in County Limerick: the Bourkes, Standish O’Gradys and the Lloyds. John will look at the earliest land records, maps and photos associated with the house and townland of Ballyvorheen from before the Cromwellian settlement, right up the foundation of the Free State in the 20th Century.
