I probably would never have scrolled down as far as U but just now I see it's listed as a locality on the OSI Mapviewer. I hadn't though of checking locality, I used to but got out of the habit, must start again.

After you said you had found the death record, I thought I would have a go too. Then just decided to look for a family name. Lo and behold, there was Ummoon mentioned!

I wonder if you have found a connection to that townland, haliared?

Thanks Glen. It doesn't show Emoon or Ummoon though  :-\ so wouldn't have helped at the time.

Hopefully Ummoon was some help to  haliared as there were people of the same name living in that area.

Thank you all, this has been a great help.
From searching others in that area it has become apparent now that this family is not the one I am looking for, but as we all know eliminating possibles is important so that we don't follow the wrong line!
