At the time of Griffiths Valuation (1848 – 1864), Tawnies Cottage was in the possession of Margaret Shirley when the house was valued at £12 5s, the highest price for a building in the townland of Tawnies Upper. This Georgian Cottage is likely to date to c.1800, a time of great prosperity for the town of Clonakilty with the linen industry thriving, Deasy’s brewery expanding and its many mills in full flow. Uniquely, the footprint of Tawnies Cottage and the sites boundaries are largely unchanged from the earliest maps of Clonakilty (1837 – 1842).
