Hi Brian,
I have a lot of info on Daniel and your family. Your Daniel was the son of Daniel who married Anne Flood and Daniel was the son of another Daniel (second son of Michael of Kilkeran) who was born in Ardfield in Co Cork. I am descended from his eldest brother Henry.
Please contact me so that we can add in your missing details as I have some of them.

Harry of Butte, Montana is descended from another Daniel who was a son of Henry of Greenfield House, the eldest son already mentioned.

Brian,
Your grandfather was the son of Daniel Gallwey who was born about 20 August 1840 and baptised on this date at Clonakilty parish. He enlisted in the Royal Irish Constabulary on 21 December 1857 and resigned on what seems to be 26 July 1861. He appears to have arrived in Brisbane on 2 November 1862 (listed as Galloway). On 12th November 1862 he entered the Brisbane public service as a Police Officer and later became a Police Magistrate. The Daniel who went to Butte was his first cousin. Your great.grandfather was thew grandson of Michael Gallwey of Kilkerran,
