While it is quite possible that your Joseph Gately was really from England, it is just as likely and maybe moreso that his UK/British citizenship caused an assumption about his true birthplace. Irish citizenship came about in 1922 with the founding of the Irish Free State. And virtually all Gatelys come from an area in South Roscommon near the Galway border. Recommend you search the Irish records first.
