Help deciphering handwriting Delaney/Keogh wicklow
« on: Thursday 07 January 21 01:21 GMT (UK) »
I'm doing some research on my Irish ancestry but I'm stuck with some handwritten place names.

1)place under fathers name on birth record

2)current residence on marriage record (I think this maybe cornagower?)

These are my great great grandparents! Any help will be much appreciated.
