He later claimed that he was not a United Irishman and that he was an unwilling insurgent. He played a leading and distinguished part in the action against General Fawcett's advance guard below Three Rocks and later at New Ross. Cloney served under Father Philip Roche's command at Lacken Hill, marched with him to Wexford on the 19th June and back to Goff's Bridge (Foulke's Mill) on the 20th June. Both he and Father Kearns went into hiding at his father's house for a time.

He died there on 20th February 1850 at the age of seventy six.
