|Description:||Also known as Mount Prospect, Fitzgerald describes Mount Prospect as the "magnificent seat and demesne of the present Chief Baron". Lewis describes Rockbarton as the "elegant mansion of Lord Guillamore". It was occupied by John Low at the time of Griffith's Valuation who held it from the Viscount. It was valued at £75. By 1906 the value of the house was reduced to £60 and it was then occupied by Lord Fermoy. The Irish Tourist Association surveyor records the sale of this house to Mr Barry in 1922. It remained in his possession until it was demolished in 1941 and the fittings sold to a Limerick builder. He writes that it was one of the "showplaces of Ireland" with a grand staircase of marble and that it had been renovated at a cost of £70,000 circa 1912 by the Honourable Nigel Baring who was married to a daughter of Lord Fermoy.The house is now a ruin.|
