Description On the first edition Ordnance Survey map this house is labelled Lisduff House but on the 25-inch edition of the 1890s it has become known as Danesfort. In the mid 19th century it belonged to a branch of the Dolphin family of Turoe. By the early 20th century Danesfort was inherited through marriage by the Tighes of The Heath, near Ballinrobe, county Mayo and in 1906 was the property of Robert Dolphin Tighe when it was valued at almost £16. It is no longer extant.
