To me, it looks like Moat.

I think it looks like Moat also but there's not a townland in Fermanagh with that name according to www.thecore.com/seanruad

However, there's a Moat Primary School in Enniskillen and a Moat Lane in Lisnaskea. Perhaps not the townland name which will make it more difficult to locate.

It looks like Moat with an old-fashioned 't' at the end.

I think the M in McManus has the same sort of loop at the start- certainly doesn't look like Inish to me.
