Cuir faoi means to settle down. But she isn't settling anymore but lives there, so: No. ;)

... ina bhfuil sí ina cónaí, ... ina bhfuil cónaí uirthi.

Actually, when 'cuir faoi' is used in the continuous form ' bheith ag cur faoi', it means 'live, dwell, reside' (yes, it seemed strange to me too when I first came across it - and still does).

Bhí sí ag cur fúithi i nDoire - She was living in Derry
Chuir sí fúithi i nDoire - She settled in Derry.

Have a look at An Foclóir Nua on teanglann, under '(to) live', entry no. 6.

(So how to say 'She was (in the process of) settling in Derry?)
