I wouldn't get too caught up in ages and accuracy
The earlier an age was recorded e.g at school, marriage etc. the more accurate it was

At marriage in a church the priest could possibly check for a baptism and be accurate

Otherwise many records were based completely on memory and could be as vague as " he was born the year before the big storm" or "He was older than his sister and younger than his cousin" and then a year was decided!

Aughaloor also spelt Aghaloor is to the SW of Loughglynn also spelt Loughglinn
