The Mannings used the stones of the old castle to partly build the farmhouse and also to build part of another farm across the main road and up the hill at Churchland. Elsewhere the old building is described as being a castellated mansion, but the good coign stones at the sides of the door of the deserted farm house, and the good carved half-arch which was lying in the nearby bushes would indicate that the original building was of much earlier vintage, and of the tower house type. The farmhouse had probably been built on, or very near the castle site. CCC 124 2.

[PPC] Ar an tSeanachoill, i bparóiste Chill Modomhnóg (ina bhfuil Baile Mhacóda) , in Uíbh Mac Coille, is eadh tháinig Pádraig Cúndúin ar an saol, i mbliain 1777. Piaras do b'ainm dá athair, agus Pádraig Phiarais is minicí thugtaí air féin. Insan ascall mara san atá taobh istigh de Chnoc an Dúin agus d'Oileán na gCapall -insan chuid is iarthaí de Chuan Eochaille - buaileann Abha na hUamanna le farraige ag Béal Tuinne. Tamall beag suas an abhainn sin tá droichead nur ainm do Droichead an Chrapáin - ní raibh acht áth le linn Phádraig Phiarais, ná abhfad ina dhiaidh san. Tamall suas ón ndroichead san tá Caisleán Inse Uí Chuinn, caisleán leis na Gearaltaigh mhóra, agus is ann do chomhnuigh Tomás Maol, an dara iarla déag d'iarlaíbh Deasmhumhan, agus a bheanchéile, Caitlín Nic Ghearailt ó Dhrom Anna, "an tsean-chonntaois." Idir Dhroichead an Chrampáin agus Caisleán Inse Uí Chuinn, ar an dtaobh thiar den abhainn is ea atá an talamh a bhí ag Pádraig Phiarais. PPC (1932), vii
