Gardaí investigate after fire guts Delgany heritage property

Gardaí have started an investigation after one of the country’s oldest private houses, Stylebawn in Delgany, Co Wicklow, was destroyed by fire at the weekend.

Stylebawn dated from at least 1773, but some parts may have been even older.

At about 5pm last Saturday, flames were noticed coming from the roof of the T-shaped property which stands on 3½-acre site in the centre of the village.

The house was unoccupied since it was bought by a company associated with property developer Johnny Ronan about 12 years ago. Nobody was injured in the fire which caused extensive damage to the house.

Open to public

Under a previous owner, John Gaisford St Lawrence, whose family own Howth Castle, the gardens were regularly opened to the public, particularly during the Wicklow Gardens Festival.

The property was originally two thatched houses before they were joined by an extension, including a hall door above which a plaque bore the date 1773. In an interview in the 1980s the late Mr Gaisford St Lawrence said he believed parts of it dated from the early 16th century.

Gosh, that is so sad. I had never heard of the house until we did a bit of research for Mary b.

On the upside, there will now be no difficulties in developing the site as there will be nothing which has to be kept. The Lord moves in mysterious ways.

rocker, I agree the Lord does move in mysterious ways but humans are much more complex - I wonder who was holding the Fire Insurance Policy in this case?
