Hi Karen,

I suggest you put this post on the Clare Past Forum at the Clare Library website www.clarelibrary.ie
There are some very knowledgeable local people who would likely recognise the names.
Go to the above link, then click on forums on the right of the page, and then select Clare Past Forum.
The CLare Library also has a fabulous history & genealogy collection available free on-line at the same location.
Good luck!

Hi again Karen,
I have just had a quick look at the clare library site, and I think the missing placenames are as follows:
Roman Catholic Chapel of Clonrush
The place of residence looks to me like Bealnagough, which would match with the townland of Boleynagoagh, in the Parish of Clonrush, Union of Scarriff, as listed in the Griffiths valuation at http://www.clarelibrary.ie/eolas/coclare/genealogy/griffiths...
There are several Hallorans listed there in the Griffiths valuation
