Description A residence of the Godsell family in the 18th century, it was still in the possession of James Godsill in 1814. Lewis writes that Sunville anciently belonged to the Godsall family but was "now" (1837) the residence of E. Sayers. Edward Sayers held it in fee at the time of Griffith's Valuation. Sunville/Sunvale was afterwards a residence of the Low family, being occupied in 1906 by Colonel John Low. Lithographs of this house and mill are included in the sale rental of 1853. The Irish Tourist Association surveyor wrote in 1943 that the house was owned by Mr John O'Donnell. He says that it was built in the early 18th century by the Cosby family from whom it passed to the Lowes. It is labelled Sunvale on the 25-inch Ordnance Survey map of the 1890s. The house is no longer extant.
