I still think that Paul Gaffney of Derreenavicara and my great grandfather Patrick Gaffney (born around 1834) were closely related and were possibly brothers. Recently after many years of searching I found some information on my great grandfathers sister Sarah who died in Massachussettes in 1902 - she was married to a Peter McLaughlin. Her parents names were given as Patrick Gaffney and Mary Rohan. Do you have any information as to the Parents of Paul Gaffney? - I note that Paul was married to a Bridget McLaughlin.
