Meelick House on 1829 to 1842 map.
Not sure if this is same place as Meelick House where Thomas Nix lived in the 20th century.
Paddy Waldron also records Nix's house as "Meelick Fort House" or "Meelick Villa".

Site of the above Meelick House today (to RHS of the road).
From Google Maps.
Street view shows a new house built at the site.
Again, we are not sure this is the Nix house location.
