Searching for information concerning Doulaghty/Delahanty, Torpey in Clare

I am a third generation American descended, I am told, from James Delahanty, Patrick Delahanty, Thaddeus Dolohanty, Anne Torpey and Brigid MacNamara, all of whom came from County Clare in the middle of the 1800's.  I would appreciate any information any of you have concerning any of them.
