Looks like Dunmurrick but I can't find that as a townland in parish of Ballybay/Ballibay.
Here’s Martha’s sister’s marriage which gives the townland a bit more clearly. It appears to be Dunmurrisk.


I don’t know the area but my hunch is that it’s an alternative spelling for Dunmaurice. (Try saying both. Its more or less the same word). There’s a William Breaky listed as farming there in Griffiths Valuation in 1861.
