Welcome to Rootschat Coys
I dont have local knowledge but it may possibly be a "subtownland"
I have seen it on recent addresses when I "googled" so it would seem it is still used.

Not even a sub townland

Not all sub-townlands are listed- I know of several that aren't  ;)

Can't see it on OSI maps either.

Might be on Griffiths....
