Could the spelling be Kilnalappa?

The following web site gives details of the townland of Kilnalappa:

A townland is basically a rural district consisting of several areas of farmland.

It is located approximately 2 miles North East of Dunmore, Co. Galway.

It is also shown on the Ordnance Survey of Ireland (OSI) Discovery Series Map No. 39.

These can be ordered on-line from the OSI web-site at:

Many thanks for your response. Have not been able to get to
those sites yet. They must be very busy. Do you believe
the spelling that I used was phonetic? My Mom spelled it that way, but her Mom had a brogue and it could have been
misinterpreted, as is the case with so many of the early
records. Again, thanks for your time & effort. Lu B.

This is 12 years late but here goes. My g g grandfather was married in 1871. He listed his home town as Wood Bed. Through my research I have come to understand that the translation of Wood Bed is Kilnalappa. Since he was married in Cloonfad about 10 miles away it fit. Additionally, his name was Patrick Comer and I have read that there is a remnant of an old circular fort in Kilnalappa named Comer's fort. Too much to be a coincidence. Don't you think?
