History of Greenhall House, Rathcormac.
The present Greenhall House in the townland of Bridgelands, Rathcormac was built in the mid 1800’s near the site of an older dwelling. In earlier times Greenhall was occupied by the Corbett family. In 1894 Batt Curtin of Curraghprevin, son of Thomas Curtin, married Ellen Aherne of Kilbree, Midleton. The couple wed in St Patrick’s Church in Cork city. Batt and Ellen Curtin came to live in Greenhall and had a family of eight children, one son and seven daughters. Nora Maria was the eldest and Catherine Josephine, Mary Elizabeth, Ellen Christina, Anne Mary, Rita, Prudence and James Thomas – born in 1907. The year 1922 was a traumatic one for the Curtin family. On May 23rd their only son James died at the age of 14. Three months later tragedy struck again. During a Civil war shoot-out between Free State soldiers and Irregulars near Bridgelands a stray bullet came through a window of Greenhall and struck twenty three year old Anne Mary Curtin in the head. Despite the best efforts of Dr. Kiely from the South Infirmary Hospital in Cork – who was visiting Curtin’s, and the local Dr. Barry, Anne Curtin died of her wounds. She is buried in the family grave in Gortoe cemetery. Mary Elizabeth inherited Greenhall and married James O Keeffe of Cronovan, Bartlemy. James was son of Peter O Keeffe and Hannah Roche of Baneena, Bartlemy. A Rate Collector James O Keeffe came from a family steeped in equine breeding and racing. ‘Donal Dhu’ who was purchased from Vincent O Brien’s father, was one of the most famous horses that raced out of Cronovan. The O Keeffe family in Greenhall were followers of racing and hunting. James O Keeffe died in 1971 and his wife Mary Elizabeth in 1977. John and Jim O Keeffe farmed the ancestral acres. Along with their brother Joe they were well known figures at race meetings, Shows, drags and great followers of the Coolnakilla Harriers. Greenhall was extensively refurbished and upgraded in recent years and is a beautiful home in a sylvan setting in the Bride Valley Another sporting link with Greenhall is Limerick Hurler Barry Murphy of Doon- he’s a great, grandson of James and Mary Elizabeth O Keeffe and nephew of the present owner. A historic house with a great story to tell.
