I checked www.seanruad.com which is the 1851 census townland directory and found this / these townland(s) (DROMLEIGH) in Cork County, (Munster Province). There are two townlands of this name in Cork or one that straddles borders. This / these townland(s) are in either Kilmichael or Kilguilane Civil Parish.
Good luck to you.

I've checked Brian Mitchell's "A Guide to Irish Churches and Graveyards for the Cork parishes of Kilgullane and Kilmichael and found this:
Kilguillane parish has only a graveyard in Kilguilland townland (No churches)
Kilmichael parish has two Roman Catholic Churches at:
- Cooldorragha Townland
- Johnstown Townland
and one Established Church (Church of Ireland) at:
- and Dromleigh Townland is also in this parish
