CURLEY Family History

This most interesting name with variant spellings Kerley, Turley, Terry and McTerrelly, found particularly in the counties of Galway and Roscommon, is an Anglicized form of the Gaelic name "Mac Thoirdealbhoigh". This is composed of the Gaelic prefix "mac", meaning "son of", and the personal name "Toridhealbhach", having as its first element the Scandinavian name "Thor" (God of Thunder) and the second element "dealbhach", "in the shape of". The name has also been Anglicized as "Terence" and "Terry". In the 1750 Census of Ireland, both MacTerlagh and MacTurlough, appear among the principal Irish names in County Limerick. The places Ballymacurley and Curleys Islands are both found in Roscommon, thus emphasising the connection of the name with that area...

Curley

In May of 2018 my family is going to Ireland. My Irish heritage is from my father's mother, whose name was Edna Mary Curley. She was born in the US, her parents immigrated from County Mayo. I would like to know what city or village they lived in so I could visit it. Edna was born in 1896 or "98. Any info would be appreciated.
