Irish ships rejected from US ports

In 1846-47, at the height of the Irish migration, the US ports began to reject vessels, forcing them to make their way to Quebec or New Brunswick ports instead.
Is there any way of knowing the names of these vessels which were rejected and ended up in the Canadian ports of Quebec and Montreal?
