Your attachment is cropped in such a way as to rob us of the opportunity to see more of the handwriting and context. I suspect you are making some mistake, as Irish death certificates do not include maiden surnames.

It looks to be a Scottish death certificate (which would record a maiden name) but presumably the family are known to have come from Ireland.

I'd go for McKenny too.

If it is a Scottish cert, then isn't this query in the wrong section?

It says M.S. before the surname which usually stands for Maiden Surname.

I plump for McKenny too.   Or McHenry at a stretch.
