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.

Biography of Daniel Long

Dear Friends, I’m a historian from Wellington, NZ, commissioned to write a biography of Daniel Long, who was head of the Public Service Association, this country’s largest public sector union, from 1960 until his death in 1976.

Both of Dan Long’s parents migrated from Cork just after World War One, and this message is an attempt to find out something of their early life in Ireland. Their names were Timothy Long and Catherine Mary Hickey until their marriage in about 1919.

I have found their family’s forms in the 1911 online census data. These tell me that they both lived in a townland called Scrahan in northern Cork, near a larger village called Knocknagree. Both came from farming backgrounds and had minimal formal education. Both families were Catholic.

I am hoping that your society can put me in touch with information on social conditions in the Knocknagree region around WW1. Even if this information doesn’t deal with the families specifically, a general idea of the place and times they lived in would be very valuable.
