Upper Camus and William J Flaherty, prior to 1900

Surnames: Flaherty,Coneely,Sullivan
I am looking for information on my husband's family. His grandfather came from Upper Camus, Galway. There is a Lower Camus and an Upper Camus. I can't find the town when I do a search on the Ireland search website (seanruad website). The Gaelic name is either Camus Eighter or Camus Oughter. I assume one is Lower Camus and one is Upper Camus? But neither of those names come up on the search engine. I found a few Flahertys in Grffiths in Camus Oughter and Camus Eighter, but I don't know which is Lower and which is Upper. They are adjacent and are in the parish of Kilcummin. His grandfather is William J Flaherty and he emigrated to Boston about 1900. He said that he came from Rosmuc on his naturalization record. Why would he say Rosmuc and not Upper Camus or Kilcummin? What is the RC parish for Upper Camus? Can anyone help me out with information on this town or area? He was the son of Patrick Flaherty and Bridget Coneely. He had brother Patrick, Martin and probably Michael and sisters Delia and Mary (Sullivan). I think they all came to Boston. If any stayed behind, I would love to hear about them.
Thank you,
Maryann Flaherty
