looking for family of Winifred Cecelia Dwyer (b1868 new york)

Surnames: Dwyer, Mullooly
Hi I'm researching my great grandmothers family. I know her father was Bernard Dwyer from Ireland (an engineer) who went to USA in about 1840's and she had approx 10 siblings, two older brothers, one a judge in Boston, the other a doctor. She grew up in New York but was sent home to live with two maiden aunts in Longford when she was approx 15, in the care of the ships captain. She was believed to be second youngest. The name of Mullooly in Granard, Longford had been mentioned by my grandmother but no further details. I can't find birth records for Winifred Cecelia in New York, so don't know her mothers name. Only her fathers name is listed on her marriage cert, which took place in Longford, Ireland. Any direction in finding the New York or Boston relatives would be enormous help. Can't seem to locate them on the census as my information is still limited. Many thanks
