I've been doing some checking and looked at passenger lists to NY for Richard in 1912. I found two Richard Daltons of the right age travelling to NY-
a Richard Dalton arriving in NY on 13 May 1912 from Queenstown Cork stating age 22 occupation Labourer born Knocktopher Co Kilkenny and his father's name as James Dalton of Knocktopher Co Kilkenny going to a cousin Thomas Whelan 285 East 111 St NY.
The other is a Richard Dalton arriving from Queenstown Cork on 31 Mar 1912 occupation Sales representative and his father as William Dalton of 15 Curragh Rd Cork (though when I checked the Irish 1901 census for Dalton in Curragh Rd I found a Richard Dalton of the right age but his father was Samuel and they were of the Church of Ireland religion.)
Neither of these seem to match your Richard Dalton with parents Michael Dalton and Margaret Flynn. As I mentioned in earlier message this family in Grangemockler Tipperary seems to be a good fit for the family you are looking for.

In the Irish civil marriage index there is a marriage for a Michael Dalton in the Carrick on Suir Registration District Oct Dec 1884 Volume 4 page 219 with a match for a Margaret Flynn. Also I have found a similar marriage match for a Catherine Dalton and Edmond McGlynn 1927 Quarter Jul Sep Carrick-on -Suir District Volume 4 page 407. You would have to get the marriage certs to confirm that this is the right family. Suggest you also try for birth cert for Richard if you do not have one. this is a possible birth reference Richard Dalton Carrick-on-Suir District Jan Mar 1891 volume 4 page 531
You can download application forms for certs at www.groireland.ie If you decide to do so suggest you ask for photocopies of the entry in the registers as this cost less than a cert and you get the same information.
I hope this is clear and of course it all depends on you being sure about Richard's parents names.
