The informant Elizabeth Nolan? lived in Gowna which is in Scrabby District in Cavan R.D. Here's Scrabby Electoral Division.
https://www.townlands.ie/cavan/scrabby1/ and the townland associated with Gowna.

If she spoke with a broad Cavan accent, she might have said 'Cloncavid', written down by the registrar, when the actual name was Cloncovet.

This townland is about 7km SE of Gowna.

Just a thought  ???

Thank you :)

Do you know if it's possible to find electoral rolls for Cavan for the 1920's / 1930's?

Looks like Cloncavit?, Cavan RD (Rural or Registration District).

For the electoral rolls have a look at this article.

You probably need to contact the archives at Cavan County Library.

Thank you. I am currently talking to the archives people about trying to find a marriage record for the couple or a birth cert for Mary to try and find out who they were!
