Nature: 'At Dunsandle, Co. Galway, at least one room with a Wyatt ceiling was executed for Denis Daly, MP and possibly more, as the hall chairs were identical to those at Castle Coole.   The house attributed to Davis Duckart was Palladian, but the drawing room is recorded as being 'Adamesque' and a Wyatt drawing for a ceiling for Daly survives.'
