Roscommon townland/parish query

    I have a transcription of a death cert in Australia in 1879, which gives the woman's place of birth as: JILLOLSEH, ROSCOMMON IRELAND

    Taking into account that the Australian transcriber is probably unfamiliar with Irish townlands, and also may have misread the handwriting on the original entry, and additionally that the informant (the elderly husband) may have mis-remembered the townland name, can anyone suggest what the real townland/parish might be?

    I thought that it's more likely to be something starting "Kill" rather than "Jill" as transcribed, but I've searched Roscommon townland listings and can't find anything that might fit.

    Can anyone help?
