Hi

A friend, who knows the area very well, feels its probably Derrinsallow townland in Dorrha civil parish.  There are other Kennedys in that townland in the Griffiths Valuation and its the only thing remotely approaching that in appearance. She thinks they have left the W off the end of the word in the register.

Cheers

Hi LH

I looked back through the parish baptism register for Lorrha & Dorrha and found the locality Derrinsallow and the unknown locality D...th on the same page written in the same handwriting. ( attached)
18 Dec 1831 D.....th
19 Dec 1831 Derrinsallow

While they are both in the parish, they are definitely different places.

So back to trying to find the locality D...th
