Where is Curroe?
« on: Friday 09 October 20 18:25 BST (UK) »
I have found a record on Ancestry which is of interest to me, but I cannot find the place

Its a burial for a Margarita Maher, in 1873, residence is given as Curroe, and burial place Ballinahown, Westmeath and Offaly, Ireland.

Could someone suggest where/what Curroe might be?  I was hoping to find a matching death registration, but have had no luck so far.

thanks
Lisa
