However, by the time of Griffith's Valuation, it appears to have reverted to use as a house, leased by John Smyth from the Clanricarde estate and valued at £11. The house at this location is labelled Fortlands House on the 25-inch Ordnance survey map of the 1890s. A house is still extant at the site.
