What sort of information are you looking for?

The latest available Irish census is 1911 (it and 1901 are online, free)-
http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/search/

Added- the surname DUFFTY doesn't appear in either 1901 or 1911 census or civil registration index

A Patrick Duffley married 1st quarter 1911 in Athlone Reg district (Roscommon or Westmeath) 3/16
A Catherine Cunningham married 1st quarter 1911 in Athlone Reg district Roscommon or Westmeath) 3/16
There is a Patrick Duffley in 1901 census in Roscommon with father Michael
http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/reels/nai003833645/ though name is transcribed as Duffey.

This may be Patrick and his wife (Kate) and his father in 1911. Name is given as Duffily. Patrick and Kate married less than one year. http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/pages/1911/Roscommon/Lecarrow/Carrownamaddy/776604/

Looks like the births of William and some of his siblings were also registered in Athlone registration district.

Good Afternoon,

My name is Adrian Duffley and my father is Peter from Athlone Ireland.
There isn't many of us left to be honest.  A lot emigrated including myself.
You say your looking for the Cunningham's I presume from Athlone or Roscommon etc.
There are a good few of them to be frank in or around Athlone.
Is your surname Duffley?

Look forward to hearing from you, just logged into this site to answer your query to be frank !
So I hope you get an email notification or else you can I won't know you responded !

Kind Regards

Duff

Hello
Are you still searching for the Duffley couple?
I'm a Duffley and live in Ireland.  Possibly one of the last few branches of the family left in Ireland.  My ancestors came from Roscommon originally and moved to Dublin 2 generations ago.  I've an elderly aunt who is 95.   She may possibly be answer any queries you may have
Thank you
