Kilballyhue ( Kyleballyhue ) House.

Kyleballyhue is an estate in County Carlow and has an elevation of 134 metres. Kyleballyhue is situated northwest of Graiguenaspiddoge, southwest of Moyle.

John NOLAN, the husband of Maria, née WHELAN, died in DUBLIN (Leahy Terrace, SANDYMOUNT) on August 23rd, 1862, at the age of 63 years (born about 1799). He is buried together with both his parents in the family vault in the SLEATY Old graveyard (County LAOIS).

His father was John NOLAN, of KILBALLYHUE House, County CARLOW. John, his son, also of KILBALLYHUE, was Justice of Peace of County CARLOW at the time of his death. I have been told that after the death of John NOLAN, the J.P., his widow, Maria, née WHELAN, did sell the NOLAN estate (KILBALLYHUE Park). And did come back to DUBLIN where the WHELAN family was living. That I do know for sure.

The above Info was supplied by Claude-Régis POLLET (June 2020) who is a desendent of Whelan family.
