John (and May?) O'Flaherty of Lisdonagh near Headford

I'm looking for information regarding the John O'Flaherty who lived in Lisdonagh House near Headford in the early 1800s. My g-great grandmother was Anne Mary O'Flaherty (married John Kilkelly of Mossfort). I've found references to her as "the 4th daughter of John O'Flaherty of Lisdonagh" and as the "sister of Martin F O'Flaherty". And I suspect that she may have been an aunt of Eva Kelly -whose grandparents are referred to in misc. articles as "John and May O'Flaherty of Lisdonagh".

The dates I have for her are a bit suspect, but I found one record that states that she was 88 years old when she died in 1896 which would make her birth date about 1808. But... she married John Kilkelly in 1841 (age 33?) and her 2 children were born in 1844 and 1849 - which would have made her 41 when her daughter was born...?

I'd greatly appreciate any information or suggestions anyone may have to offer.
