Sullivan/ Sheehan Kenmare- moved to Brooklyn NY and MA.

Surnames: Sullivan, Sheehan
I am new to this but hoping somone can help me out.

I know the following information
Timothy Sullivan from Kenmare married Bridget Sheehan of Kenamre. Bridget's date of birth is somewhere between 1857 and 1867. They had at least 6 children between the years of 1893 and 1901. The names of the children are Thomas, Patie, Michael,Peter, Besie and there may have been a Bridget. We know Thomas, Michael, Besie and Peter came to Brooklyn NY at different times but around 1920's.

I am trying to figure out any connections to these people but any suggestions on how to track down the marriage certificate of Bridget Sheehan and Timothy Sullivan. We beleive that Bridget may have married prior to Timothy and had an additional family that emigrated to Boston.
Bridget Sullivan was listed in the 1911 Census in Ireland and lived on Market Street.

Any information or guidence would be greatly appreicated. Any information on how to track baptimsal records in Kenmare would be great too.

My grandmother was born 12th May 1904 at Filemore near Kenmare. Her name was Mary Sheehan. She was born in tragic circumstances , when her father died in a railway accident , which bought on her mother's early labour , (upon hearing the news). Her mother died giving birth to her. I seen how you helped another on this site and it may be possible that you are in a position to do the same for me. Mary Sheehan was reared by her grandparents John and Ellen Sheehan. Mary's mother was said to be a Sullivan. I thank you regardless , Steve , Western Australia , moombaprince@yahoo.com.au
