A chara Mary Beth,
The Civil Parish where your Mooney ancestors came from was called Kilmacduagh. The Catholic Parish located in this Civil Parish was known as Kilmacduagh & Kiltartan, and also known as Gort. The National Library of Ireland lists the Catholic Parish under the name of Gort. See: https://registers.nli.ie/parishes/0623
Unfortunately, the Gort Catholic baptisms only go back to 30 June 1848, while marriages for Gort commence on 6 December 1853, according to the National Library of Ireland. This means there will not be a baptism record available for your 4th great grandfather or his brother Michael. By 1848 the Mooney family may have been on their way to America, or may have already settled in America.
I could not find a location in the Kilmacduagh Civil Parish called Panshal, or any alternate spelling of the name. I looked for the name of this townland at the online IreAtlas. To see the names of the townlands located in the Kilmacduagh Civil Parish, go to the IreAtlas link at: https://is.gd/XTApN7
The townlands are listed alphabetically. You’ll see “Gort T.” in the IreAtlas, which stands for Gort Town.
The name of the Catholic Church in Gort is St. Coleman’s, and according to a Wikipedia article, St. Coleman’s was dedicated on 6 September 1829. See the Wikipedia entry at: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/St._Colman%27s_Church,_Gort
I don’t know if the parish registers for St. Coleman’s had existed from the year 1829 but were later unreadable because of age, or if they just weren’t compiled by the clergy until the late 1840s and early 1850s, but it’s possible that your Mooney ancestors were married and baptized in St. Coleman’s. You can view the location of the church on a Google Map of Gort at: https://is.gd/bm3QAu

I also found an Ordnance Survey Map of Gort from the 1837 to 1841 time period, showing the location of the “R.C. Chapel,” which would be St. Coleman’s Catholic Church. This map is in color and is from the GeoHive website. See the map at: http://bit.ly/2UFpqEf
Also May Beth, your ancestors would not have sailed into Ellis Island when they arrived in New York in the 1840s. They would have disembarked on New York docks. This was well before Ellis Island opened in 1892, or before Castle Garden, also in New York City, became an immigration center in 1855. See the following:
Sorry for the bad news about the baptism records. I know how disappointing this is as I’ve been looking for the birthplace of my great grandfather in County Cavan since 1988, and still haven’t found out where in Cavan he was from.
Best Wishes for St. Patrick’s Day.
