Hope this is of help,
Nice page you have here! I have some Great, Great Grandparents that were born around there. Under the shadow of Mt. Sleivenamon or what ever that mountain is over there! My Great Great Great Grandparents were supposedly John Cooney who married an Ellen Laughlin and had several children. One of which was my Great Great Grandfather Timothy Cooney. Any information?
