The family of Carrowbeg, descended from the principal of the name, was
deprived, in a time of Cromwell, of the greatest part of its extensive
possessions, which were assigned to Lord Limerick, but afterwards reverted
back, by purchase, to the ancient inheritors. The Skerrett family relate
that the estate of Carrowbeg?, formerly belonged to them, but
passwd into that of Bodkin through a marriage with an heiress of their name.
