Hello -- I found a scan of a baptism record that I want to add to my family tree, but I'm having difficulty reading the location listed as "address." I believe that this refers to the particular church within a diocese, based on information from other records. Can anyone decipher this word? In the attached, I've included the record of interest (Sep 8 1855 -- Tim of Tim Sheehan and Julia Culinane). The word was spelled "Ardnanineen" by the transcriber for the website, but I get no search results using that spelling. I thought maybe someone local would recognize it? Any help appreciated!

    Welcome to Ireland Reaching Out!

    You are looking at the parish register and the locations are the townlands where the various families lived. In your cae, the Sheehans were living in Ardaneneen townland in Kilmichael civil parish. Ardaneneen is about 600 acres in size.

    Let me know if you have further questions.
