You were looking for "Choome" in Galway. I believe that it is more likely to be Tuam. In the 1901 Irish census there is a family named Franey living about 7 miles from Tuam, possibly relations of yours. The web address is http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/pages/1901/Galway/Carrownagur/Slieve/1379699/http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/pages/1901/Galway/Carrownagur/Slieve/1379699/ I hope this is of use to you. Brendan O'Donoghue. PS my gggmother was a Franey.
