I have been trying to locate the parish of Coalmeals, co. Clare for some time. So far, I haven't been successful.
I got the name from the "List of Orphans in the Catholic Orphanage of Quebec 1847-1848".
My ancestor, Elizabeth Mahoney, is listed as coming from "the parish of Coalmeals, co. Clare".
Since the list was compiled by the Grey Nuns and that most of them were French Canadian, they might have made a spelling mistake while writing the name down...I'm not sure.
Can anyone help?
