It is said that the Lynch Family lived in a dwelling in Glanafhuca, overlooking the River Feal. Glanafhuca, located behind the ruins of a castle was home to several flourmills in the early Nineteenth Century, and was named after a spirit which (tradition alleges) at one time haunted the area. It is now the site of the carpark to the racecourse and lies in the shadow of the ancient Listowel Castle.
