Can anyone help decipher this place name in the baptism of Honor O'Hara, 9 Feb 1828 parish of Kilglass, Killala, Sligo please?

It's the place of residence and looks to be in Irish - Lag (or Tag) a Nonthe? See screenshot below.

Thank you.

  • Fionn:

    The 1833 Tithe Applotment listings for Kilglass civil parish in Co. Sligo show a Michael O'Hara and also a Michael OHara in Culleens townland. Possibly the place name you found is within the current townland of Culleens.

  • Perhaps it is Lackanatlieve townland, which is in Kilglass parish?

  • Fionn,

    I agree with Patricia, it looks like it is the current townland of Lackanatlieve. Another name for the townland is Leacán an tSléibhe (at this link This Irish version is like the screenshot. Further details can be found at this link, including historic names for the townland)

    Best wishes, Kieran
