1921 Jun. I Coy then moved to Monaghan. They first sent out a recce party who went to what was probably Ballybay House large house which appeared suitable.  Owned by the Leslies, on 2 June 1921, the house was destroyed by fire because it was believed locally that a contingent of Auxiliaries were going to be billeted there. Or it might just have been part of the retaliatory campaign ordered by the I.R.A. in reprisal for the burning of creameries by the British. I cannot find anyone taking credit in the Witness Statements. They therefore took over Castleblaney House as a base
