Genealogy: Dennehys

Hello Millstreet,
I understand this is the place to find Dennehy history and I hope you can help me. I’m looking for info on my father’s family who came from Millstreet. My grandfather was Daniel Dennehy born Sept. 1868 – died in the U.S. Sept.20, 1905. He married Ellen Riordan, also from Millstreet. I don’t know if they were married here or there but they immigrated in 1892. They had five children, my father Dennis born 1895, Patrick born 1897, Jeremiah born 1899, Cornelius born 1902 and Ellen born 1904. Eventually all the children wound up in the U.S. with the exception of Cornelius, I believe. I am going to be in Ireland the week of Aug. 1 and will be stopping in Millstreet, short notice I know but am interested in checking any records that I can. If anyone has any info they can contact me at the above e-mail address. Thanking you in advance.
