Woodlawn House P.P. Exact location not known, it may have been one of the outbuildings on the estate or a hut on the site.
Note - the Freeman's Journal (30 March 1909) notes that the 'site of a police hut' at Woodlawn was rented from Lord Ashtown at a rent of £1 per annum, and held 5 men. It did not specify that this was Woodlawn House. A presence was maintained at Woodlawn House until at least 1921.

Carraunmore T.S. Police Barracks (aka Rahally)
Grange District. The Freemans Journal (30 March 1909) notes that a private house was rented from Lord Ashtown at a cost of £12 per annum and 12 men were stationed there. It would appear this was also known as Rahally RIC Barracks. In July 1910 it was noted that 'Acting Sergeant Bermingham' had been transferred to Carraunmore from Craughwell. The station party as at the April 1911 Census in Rahally numbered six men, although the enumerator - Constable James Mathews - was stationed at New Inn in Jan 1911. (Note - Rahally townland adjoins Carraun More). The station was always listed as Carraunmore in the nominal returns.

Tallyho RIC Barracks (Rathgorgin)
A Temporary Station existed at Roxborough, Loughrea District for a period around 1909/1910 to afford protection to the owners and tenants of Roxborough House from the agitation caused by the United Irish Land League. The station was discontinued in late 1910 and protection switched to the area around Tallyho House, Rathgorgin. It was a fairly large police presence of around 10 constables, and was maintained there until 1918.
I am not sure of the exact location of the barracks.
