Where is Camburn, Kerry Ireland - near Cahersiveen but where?

My great grandmother's marriage record puts her 'from' Camburn, Kerry. I can't find a town by that name. If I search http://churchrecords.irishgenealogy.ie for 'Camburn' I find five or six records for this area. I'm thinking it might be Canburrin? In other church records she is from COOLCASLAGH .

Anyone have any idea where Camburn is? Thanks....

Can't find any reference to Cambourn as you say it may be Canburrin.

Looks like Joanna Kelly and Mary Kelly are from the same parents, as well as a few other overlaps. Going with Camburn is equal to Canburrin for now. Thanks for the dialog.

If you look at this on the 1901 Census the surnames match up with some of the Church record surnames http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/pages/1901/Kerry/Caher...

Cahersiveen was the Poor Law Union or Civil Registration District for the Parish of Caher and the Townland Canburrin. A PLU would be no more than 12 mi. from the the townland.

What used to be would not necessarily exist today. I don't see a name for the inlet where Cahersiveen is located on a major road(perhaps a coast road)N70 from Kells to Waterville, there is a Biginish Island at the entrance to the inlet

www.visitcahersiveen.ie has maps and describes the town as
a small rural market town that has had several alternate spellings

Coolcaslagh has a recycling depot and an industrial park

I'd have to agree with annclare that it's "canburrin". It can be found on google maps and is about 4Km due south-east of Caherciveen town.
