Maddenstown House was home to Captain William Kelly, horse racing enthusiast and patron of prize fighter Dan Donnelly. Ballyfair House was home to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland when races were staged at the Curragh Racecourse. James Touchet, third earl of Castlehaven's house at Maddenstown served as a refuge for “a great number of English protestants that had been robbed by the rebels’ and then helped them find their way to safety.”
