Ballybunion parish registers on National Library of Ireland website.
https://registers.nli.ie/parishes/0651
Enter year and month.
They are in Latin. No more information for Patrick than is on transcription. I agree with what Heywood says about looking at original and possibility of different interpretations. I've submitted amendments for transcriptions of many Irish records on various websites.

I noticed after I'd posted. I was flipping between the 2 threads.

Have you found any children marrying?

Marriage 30 th April 1870
https://registers.nli.ie/registers/vtls000634245#page/10/mode/1up

Thomas Collins and Catherine Stack , Father Philip Stack , residence Dirreenavach (Coolcaorach)  ???

I think this must be right, although if you can believe it, there was another couple named Thomas Collins and Catherine Stack who married a few years previous, so I can't be sure if the records for the children of Thomas and Catherine belong to the one couple or the other.

In positive developments, I contacted the Ballybunion tourism board to find out where Dirrennavack is, because it's listed on all of these baptism records but I can't find anything about it on Google. It turns out the woman I contacted is also a Stack from this area and she told me this is actually the name of a house in the Coolkeragh area, and that Stacks lived there until recently. She also said that Coolkeragh is in Listowel parish, so I guess that must have changed because all of the church records I have found are in Ballybunion.

Irish Ancestors lists Coolkeragh under both parishes.
It's in the Civil Parish of Galey which as you can see on the links is listed under both parishes so must straddle the border between the two.

The family probably used the church nearest to them, which looks like it happened to be in Ballybunion.

I just thought it was an alternative name for the townland and was questioning my reading of the
spellings.  :)

Put  just DIRRENAVACK into location on Irish Genealogy and find the Kellys mother Stack

Put  just DIRRENAVACK into location on Irish Genealogy and find the Kellys mother Stack

If I search for d*n*v*k and d*n*v*c I can find 19 different records for this house, of which 17 or 18 are Stacks (one is for the name North and I can't find the actual record for it, but I think it might actually be a Stack).

Now that I know this is a property and not a village, I am thinking that the family may not have moved around as much as I had considered.

Patrick Stack, 11 Dec 1839, Derrenavack
James Stack, 17 Apr 1842, Dirrenavack
Catherine Stack, 24 Apr 1844, Coolkeragh
Bridget Stack 1 Feb 1847, Coolkeragh
William Stack, 13 May 1848, Dirrenavack
John Stack, 25 Jun 1850, Tullamore
Honora Stack, 1 Nov 1857, Derrenavak
Philip Stack 1 Aug 1860, Gale

Most of the above locations could actually be the same place, the priest may have listed the house sometimes and the village sometimes. I am thinking Gale could be Galey, which was the civil parish that Coolkeragh is in.

The lady you spoke to is local so I'd expect knows what she is talking about but I can't help feeling it was a townland name that fell out of use over time but was kept alive at that farm/house.
I had a case of this with one of my famlies, took ages to figure out where Strillstown in Westmeath was, it isn't on any map or list and my family were the only ones using it. It was only from local knowledge of where the family lived (they had a mill, which helped) that I was able to pinpoint it but the name had been forgotten since the family moved on.
