Thank you, yes I think that is going to have to be my next option.
Unfortunately as I know nothing about the informant other than the name it will be a lot of guesswork but hopefully I will find something.
This 'Emoon' place where the death occurred and the informant reside is not where the family are living as far as I can tell from other certificates, so I am wondering if it was a kind of hospital or similar. I did try and search establishments of that nature in the area, but again came up with nothing like it.
I'll let you know if I ever work it out!!

I looked at a marriage and births of children for the man that married a woman called Delia but no joy.

At least you know the child died near or in Headford, when and why, not bad even if you can't find the exact spot.

I was going to look at parish records for Headford to see if the name came up but they are not free online, I was thinking if it isn't an official name it may be an old name only that family use.
One of my families always use a place name that doesn't appear on any map or list, and I can only find it in parish records on their records and no one else, even people living in the area didn't know it, one historian had heard of it so we managed to pin it down  but only because it had a mill.

Following on from Sinann's lead, I too have found the entry, I think.

I have found an earlier death of someone of the same name (that's what made me check it) and the place of residence is given as 'Ummoon'. It may be coincidence. I can't find that townland either. :-\

Correction- it just came up on a map!

The earlier death I found concerns someone who is living in Beaghmore in 1911

I'm glad we found it. :)
I wouldn't have thought of looking at records like that, Sinann. Good idea!
