Location in County Laios- SOLVED
« on: Friday 10 August 18 22:24 BST (UK) »
On a death certificate I'm working with I find a location in County Laios that I cannot find.  I believe it is spelled: Coorlanane (see attached image).  It is in a death record list from Ballickmoyler or Ballicmoyler.  I've tried Townlands.ie to no avail. Can anyone assist me with the deciphering the name or know the location?

Might as well post this anyway, though Hallmark has covered it. There is a Coorlaghan 8 kms from Ballickmoyler. I think what you (and I) took for an "n" is really an "h". I found it at wikipedia's list of townlands by using the browser to search for the letters I was sure of, "coor".

Coorlaghan, but spelt Coorlahane - means 'wide curve'.
