Lamphier and Lawlor

Frank Flanagan said that Lawlor of Irishtown House, Clondalkin, Co.Dublin, were relations.
But Dody Lawlor said they weren't. She said the Flanagans were gardeners to the Lamphiers and that is how the two families knew each other.

Dody Lawlor thought the Flanagans were gardeners to the Lamphiers when the Lamphiers lived at Drimnagh Castle, but in fact it was Bridget Cavanagh's family that lived at Drimnagh Castle.
John Byrne confirms there is no record of the Lamphiers living at Drimnagh Castle.
Lamphier lived at Ballyfermot Castle.

It also seems that the Flanagans knew the Lawlors from before they were connected with Lamphier.
Whether related or not, Liam Cosgrave says the families were always very good friends:

Lieutenant, or Lieutenant Colonel,
mar Bridget Cavanagh [or Cavanaugh, or Mary Bridget Cavanagh, born 1788],
her family lived at Drimnagh Castle in 19th century,

they lived Ballyfermot,
his military records [NA.UK] say he lived at the medieval Ballyfermot Castle,
BALLYFERMOT in [Lewis, 1837] says: "Ballyfermot Castle, an ancient building, is now the residence of Capt. Lamplin",
"Capt. S. Lanphier", Ballyfermot Castle, is one of the subscribers to [Lewis, 1837], this might be a relation of Joseph rather than himself,
Wikipedia says Joseph and Bridget lived in the 17th century Ballyfermot House beside the older Ballyfermot Castle,
Joseph was bur Goldenbridge cemetery, Inchicore, 7th Nov 1838,
family lived 142 James's St, Dublin, before c.1850,
