This might be your Peter's marriage to CATHERINE Mary O'Connor in Athy, 1948:

Ireland, Civil Registration Marriages Index, 1845-1958
Name: Catherine Mary O'Connor
Date of Registration: Apr-May-Jun 1948
Registration district: Athy
Volume: 3
Page: 180
FHL Film Number: 101581
(Same references for Peter Bennett, so a match). The marriage cert will give the names of both sets of parents, and you could then go to the 1901/1911 censuses for further info.
And this might be your grandad Peter's birth info if he is aged approx 86 now:

Ireland, Civil Registration Births Index, 1864-1958
Name: Peter Bennett
Date of Registration: Jan-Feb-Mar 1926
Registration district: Athy
Birth Country: Ireland
Volume: 3
Page: 211
FHL Film Number: 101230

And this could be their son, Joseph (mother's surname O'CONNOR):

Name: John J Bennett
Mother's Surname: O'Connor
Date of Registration: Oct-Nov-Dec 1950
Registration district: Athy
Birth Country: Ireland
Volume: 3
Page: 219
FHL Film Number: 257844

And the Mary B. Bennett with mother O'Connor (I already gave you details) might be their daughter, Bernadette.

You can purchase the above certs from You only need photocopies of the original entries, and as I've given you the ref nos, I think the cost per cert is about €4 - you can phone them (from England prefix for Dublin is 00353-1 + 7 digit code)for clarification.

Happy hunting!
