Description This house, close to the town of Ennis, was the residence of Francis Swyny in 1814. Rosslevan was occupied by Michael Kerin at the time of Griffith's Valuation. He held the property from the Reverend James Rynd. Rosslevan would appear to have been the home of the Davis family for some time in the 19th century. Members of the Davis family emigrated to Australia and called their new home Rosslevan. The sale rental of January 1875 records that the house had been "improved lately" and had eight bedrooms and three sitting rooms. Weir writes that Edward O'Brien, third son of the 14th Baron Inchiquin lived in the house before it was burnt in 1922. It is now a ruin.
