The parish of New Inn also includes Knockgraffon, home to a ruined medieval church and graveyard, as well as the remains of a Motte, which is thought to date from the 1200s. Knockgraffon was also the centre of the O'Sullivan clan's ancestral lands, until that family was displaced by the Normans in the early thirteenth century. In 1998, the Knockgraffon Motte was purchased by an O'Sullivan (Gary Brian Sullivan of Statesboro, Georgia, U.S.A.) from its Norman-Irish owner (Donal Keating of Cahir, Ireland). It is the first time that Knockgraffon has been back in O'Sullivan possession for nearly 800 years.

Is Knockgraffon a village? Should it have a separate article? (Sarah777 18:17, 1 April 2007 (UTC))

It's not a village, it's just a locality today. There was a village there several hundred years ago, but it has ceased to exist. If someone very familiar with the history of the area wished to start a Knockgraffon article it would certainly be interesting; but such a person would have to be very knowledgable of medieval and early modern Irish history. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 22:05, 13 January 2008 (UTC)
