Description At the time of Griffith's Valuation, William Roycroft was leasing the house at Danesfort, valued at £12, from Miss M. O'Connor. In 1814 it was recorded as the seat of Gilbert Roycroft. Lewis also describes "Deansfort" as the seat of the Roycroft family in 1837. Keenehan and others state that the Roycroft house was demolished c.1890 and another house constructed on the site by the Duignan family.
