In search of the Mahoneys

I am researching my Irish heritage and from census records I am aware my great great great Grandfather Michael Mahoney (Mahony, as seen spelt this way in some websites) lived his last days with his daughter Kate O’Keefe and son-in-law Michael at House #5 Shanbally, Knocknagree. He died in 1901.
On 19th Feb 1846 Michael married Catherine Brosnahan at Rathmore with Nohaval and Kilcummin. I am trying to establish which church they were actually married in and whether that church still exists. I assume they lived in the immediate area all their married lives.
I am also trying to discover where they are buried. I am not sure in what year Catherine who may also have been known as Kate died but I assume it was before Michael in 1901.
I am aware they had at least one child, Daniel, who moved to New Zealand in the late 1870’s. Daniel was my great great Grandfather.
Any help would be most appreciated.
