Dad always insisted on calling it Carrickahowley (I always heard this as Carricknahooley). He went to Ireland many times, and actually spoke very good Gaelic. Alas, he was not a good teacher and my many attempts to get him to teach it to me all ended in more criticism than a boy could tolerate. I could probably order beers and get in a proper fight, but likely not be able to talk my way out of one.
I am afraid you may be waiting a while.

But it's a durable desire...it won't go away...I have no doubts.
When I go I will post here.
There's a Ladies' sail club of some sort in the bay I believe. I have chuckled at the thought of presenting myself thither and using my yank charm to enchant them...or to be thrown out.
Time will tell.
