In Find My Past translation of the 1851 census shows him born in Dowmgale, Portaferry, Ireland. Cannot find a Dowmgale but portaferry is real

I have had a look at the original census and Portaferry makes more sense. I can definitely see it now. Portaferry also happens be to in County Down. My guess is my relation had a heavy accent that the census rep could not quite comprehend. Once again SilverVixen I thank you :)
