Description Thomas Burke was leasing Prospect Villa from Mary and Catherine Rogers at the time of Griffith's Valuation, when it was valued at £60. Lewis refers to it as the seat of Lt.Col. Burke in 1837. The house was included in the sale of the Rogers estate in the Landed Estates Court in February 1862. In 1943 the Irish Tourist Association Survey noted Prospect Villa as the residence of G. Hosford and outlined Burke's association with the house mentioning that he kept a racing stable there. The house is no longer extant and a factory has been constructed in this area.
