The modern Irish surnames O'Daly, Daly, Daley, Daily, Dailey, Ua Dálaigh and Dawley are derived from Ó Dálaigh.
 

Drimoleague RC Parish records do not cover the time period of the birth of John Daly and Catherine Brien so therefore we do not have their birth dates, and guessing is misleading.

John Daly is listed here on the Daly, Garranes North, Castledonovan page.

John Daly and Catherine (Kate) Brien were married on 3rd March 1835 in Old Chapel, Drimoleague, Co. Cork.  (copy of their Marriage Certificate shown below).

John and family lived in Garranes North which is the townland immediately to the East of Castledonovan where the O'Donovan Castle stands.  The broad area covering a few townlands is often referred to as Castledonovan so hence we find the address for the childern in the Baptism Register as Castledonovan.

They had the following children (all baptised on dates below in Drimoleague):-

Mary, 13 January 1836.  Sponsors: Tom Leary, Mary Brennan

Julian, 7 July 1837.  Sponsors: Timothy Brien, Joan Daly

Catherine, 8 June 1842.  Sponsors: Denis Sullivan, Mary Brien
