1892-1897 ships to either Boston/NY from Ireland

I'm looking for immigration information on my grandmothers brothers
John dob 1868, Neil dob 1871, Denis dob 1878 and Philip dob 1880.
I think John, and Neil and possibly Denis immigrated in 1892, and I know Philip did in 1897. They all wound up in the greater Boston area.
I'd like to know the name of the ship's, they came on, and if John, Neil, Denis, Philip were traveling alone with other family\
Their surname is O'Donnell. Parents James O'Donnelldob 1845, and Susan White Doherty ODonnell dob 1845.

Their sister Mary Ann dob 1873, immigrated as well, around that time frame, but seperately I think. She wound up marrying Patrick Bradley also from Cardonagh Co Donegal where all above were from. on April 17 1902.

Any help with ships names/dates/ travel companions etc would be appreciated.
Thank you
barb

This Dennis O'Donnell is your man if:
- he was born 4 Jan 1878
- his wife's name was Catherine, born Ireland on 16 Jul 1878
- children were James, Michael, John

The passenger list indicates that he is going to his uncle, Neil O'Donnell, who is listed in the 1895 Boston City Directory as living at 3 Snowhill Pl., which matches the manifest address. Also at that address is John O'Donnell, a laborer.

In the same City Directory, there is an Owen O'Donnell, a laborer, living at 1 Snowhill Pl.
