Hi, I also think it is Tullyvallen.
My paternal grt grandmother was Amelia Megaw/ McGaw  from townland of Skerriff  Parish of Newtownhamilton which is the adjoining townland to Tullyvallen where my mother's family are from. Both townlands in Co Armagh but registration district for my Megaws was Castleblaney.
Have a look at The Creggan History Society site if you haven't already done so. Great information.

If you read the cert you will see they went to Newtownhamilton, NOT Castleblaney!!

Horrid handwriting.
Think the district (top of the page) is Newtownhamilton.

Possible one of the several Tullyvallan but someone fimilar with the area will hopefully know better.

This is a good site to have a look at Reg districts

I know!

But I gave link to relevant Map! http://www.swilson.info/regdistmap.php?gregdistid=35

I'm not sure what the point of your last post was and if it was aimed directly at me.I have read and understood all previous  posts.As someone born in Newtowmhamilton, and who grew up in Skerrif  and who has Megaw in their family tree I was just connecting with Andrew as our families may be linked.
Please accept my apologies if I misinterrupted your post as being sarcastic and unhelpful.
