townland or parish name help, please

Hi,

I am looking for the birth place of my husband's great-grandmother, Mary Finn, born about 1817. According to her death cert in Chicago, Cook County, Illinois, her place of birth was Shuplia, Co. Tipperary. I understand that a death cert is not the most reliable source of information about the deceased's beginning of life, especially when she had emigrated from Ireland to Canada to New York State to Michigan and finally settling in Chicago, but I'm hoping that it *sounds* like something. I have searched using seanruad.com, and I have scoured a list of townlands in Tipperary, but I have found nothing that sounds like this, in part or in whole. Can anyone help me out with this?

Thanks,
Jeanne
