Looking at your word I wonder if you're searching for "Dunnamanagh", which
is a district centre or crossroads in Donagheady parish, co. Tyrone (fairly
close to the co. Londonderry border).
Otherwise spelt as Donamanagh or Donemana. Could this be a phonetic fit
with what you're working with?
If the "B" looks that it could be a "D", take heart that "Dun" means "fort"
and is hence the start of many a Gaelic placename.
There is also Buncrana up in Donegal -- a town near Lough Swilly.
Happy you circulate a scanned image or two.
Any other ideas?
