F.F. Fieri Fecit ("Caused to be made")
V.D. -  Verbi Divini
E.T. ? "Theologiae"

perhaps Edinburgh?

Apart from possibly F.F, this is on the wrong track.

You need to go back to the source of the abbreviations, and understand them in that context.

"coll Mar 1 to V. D. and E.T. (F.F.)"

The meaning was actually mainly (if indirectly) given by Hallmark in the previous referenced thread.

Coll = collated to = appointed to a benefice
In this case the benefice is
V.D.  = Vicarage of Donagh
E.T. = Errigle-Trough
