I'm quite sure it's not 'Gulphire' I live not to far from Cashel and when I'm in the area I will make some enquiries and get back to you if you have not already solved your query. Can you provide the names of any other family members of that time so we can possibly help broaden the search? For the moment I've attached a link to the townlands of Cashel, which you may find helpful.

Possibly the place is Elfeet.
Pat: If you have not done so already, could you add your trip to this form. Thanks! https://www.irelandxo.com/meet-and-greet

Roger is correct.
The place is recorded as 'Eulphide' in the burial records.
However, the standardised Ordnance Survey spelling of the Townland in Newtowncashel RC Parish is 'Elfeet (Adamson)' or 'Elfeet (Burke)'.
Hoping this clarifies,

Thank you! Elfeet makes sense as it is close to the other Mearley townlands as well as a Cunningham family who has ties to them. I never would have gotten Elfeet from that document!
Yes, I will post my trip at the Ireland XO Meet and Greet.
Thanks to all, looking forward to exploring Newtowncashel!
