The Waithmans owned the Merlin Park Estate, for a time.

This Estate was commandeered through Compulsory Purchase to build the Hospital of Today.

Wathman had another House - Murrough House of that Townland. South of that, there was a Pier at the Shore. It is this Pier and general vicinity, which was mentioned as a possible outlet for the Waters of Pollavulreen and the Sandy River.
