This may be unrelated to your search. My gggrandfather was Patrick Lynch, who was born in county Kerry, Ireland. He and his wife Mary had six children, including a Johanna Lynch who was baptized on April 1, 1853 in Glen Flesk, Kerry, Ireland and a Honora Lynch was was baptized on July 18, 1859 in the same location. I don't have any information on Johanna or Honora's spouses or travels. They had another son, Cornelius in 1850. Cornelius and Mary Sweeny had a daughter Johanna Lynch in 1881 in Rathduane/Millstreet, Cork, Ireland. This Johanna traveled to Springfield, MA where she became a nun. This could just be a coincidence with the names. Let me know if any of this corresponds with any of your family records.
