David,

A correction.  'Seoirse na n-ard' (with n-) is 'George of the Heights'.  'Seoirse na haird' (with h-) is 'George of the Height'.  Easily distinguished.

So "Shores-na-hard" = Seoirse na haird = 'George of the Height' (singular).   

By family tradition, which height / high place is being referred to?

Le gach dea-ghuí / Best,
Jerry

If this is Seoirse na h-Ard, then it would be 'George of the Heights'.

If this is Seoirse na h-Aird, then it would be 'George of the Height (singular)'

Go raibh sé sin cabhrach /  Hope that's helpful,
Jerry
