Austin Cooper mentions the castle and village of Termonfeckin in his diary of 12th June, 1783 (NLI Ms. Acc. 4841, Trim, Duleek etc. 1783). He says "On a hill on the opposite side of this village stands a small old Case. [Castle] wch. the people there say belonged to the Clergyman of the Parish & is still in possn. of the Incumbent, but the use he makes of it is to serve as a granary to collect his Tythes"
