I am trying to research my McPartlin family and came across, what I believe to be, part of the family. The birth registration shows them being born in Aghavaden, Leitim Co., Mohill, Ireland. My great-grandmother was said to be born in Carrick-on-Shannon; however, I have not had any luck with finding her. When I google Aghavaden I don't get any hits at all and I cannot find it on the map. Is anyone familiar with this location?
Thanks so much.

Hi TCam,

There is a place called AGHAVAS, which is about 5-6 miles east of Mohill.

Mohill is about 10 miles East of Carrick-on-Shannon.

Plus AGHAVILLA, which is a bit further NE of Mohill

And Aghavanny, which is about 35-40 miles North of Carrick-on-Shannon (this one may be too far away though).
