Michael Smyth Residence and Wife's Maiden Name
« on: Wednesday 19 June 19 14:31 BST (UK) »
Greetings everyone,

Any assistance in deciphering the residence of Michael Smyth in the attached screenshot would be most appreciated. Just to add, the location is somewhere in Galway.
Also just on his Wife's former name, I make it out as Sweeney but not 100%.

Thanks in advance.

I agree with Pauline, it looks like a Q.

Thanks for the feedback.

after looking again, I think the place may be Drinaun in Galway.
