Could the location be St Kenny's Kilkenny http://www.kilkenny.ie/eng/About_Kilkenny/History/Famous_Landmarks/The_Four_Parishes_of_the_City.html    and the number after 18 be the number of days - 208??  :-\

St Kinney's per the more extensive record (2 pages) on FindMyPast

The name was wrongly transcribed as Cariall - I have sent a correction

He was discharged by reason of a leg wound received on 21 July 1805 at Bhurtpore where he was one of the "forlorn hope". Also wounded in the assault on Jamanlabad, 4 June 1800.

I think William Carrol was with George MacKay's father who was also George. What do you think.  I can't get the whole document to upload.  This is on the same page as William Carroll.

Not sure if it is the right William Carrol as he is listed as a ships carpenter on his daughters marriage certificate
