Townland   Valuations of 1837/38 list a Joseph Sheppard living here. It is thought that   Joseph was a carpenter. John McKitterick, a baker, is recorded by Griffith as   living here from 1864 to 1909. A lady called Jane Halligan lived here for a   short time, following which it was occupied by married policemen stationed in   the village. The names of some of those who passed through were Campbell,   Bogue and Taylor. It is interesting to note that Isaac Walker, after whom the   Community Hall in the former RUC station on the outskirts of the village is   named, lived here until the late 1990s. The current owners, relatives of   Isaac’s, carried out a meticulous restoration of the building in 2002,   including reinstatement of a picket fence.
