Looking for Deering/Dering in Dublin, IRE

Mary Deering married Henry Cary in Dublin.

The Dublin Gazette of Tuesday 15th Feb, 1742/3 reads:
Rev. Henry Cary, son of the Bishop of Killala was on last Saturday married to Miss Mary DEERING, a young lady of great beauty, merit and a fortune of ₤5000 sterling.

Who was she? Who were her family? Why are they not mentioned in the marriage announcement?
Was she born in Ireland or England? Was she related to the Derings of Kent?
Henry's will mentions her dowry but not her family.
Where did she die? Did she die in Killala where her father-in-law was Bishop and who is buried near "four of his grandchildren"? If so, why is she not mentioned? Did she die in Portarlington, where her husband later lived and re-married to Deborah Hamon/Hammond in 1756.
