Description A house located just inside the county Tipperary border with county Offaly. The property belonged to John Shortt in the mid 18th century. When he died in 1768 his widow Frances (nee Spunner) married Jonathan Doolan. Wingfield was occupied by Jonathan's son Thomas Doolan in 1814 and in 1837. The Ordnance Survey Name Books refer to it as the residence of [Paliner?] Thomas Doolan in 1840. By the time of Griffith's Valuation Henry Spunner was resident. He held the property from Jonathan Short and the buildings were valued at £20. Richard Thomas Croasdaile and his sister Margaret occupied the house in 1901. This house is now a ruin.
