Looking for descendants of Alexander Halligan and Elizabeth McCarthy of Wanganui

Alexander Halligan and Elizabeth McCarthy were married in Auckland in 1865 and lived in Hokitika until about 1881 when they moved to Wanganui. Alexander and Elizabeth had 10 known children and I am keen to establish contact with their descendants who may be interested in sharing information and photographs.

Looking for the birth details of Alexander Halligan and Elizabeth McCarthy of Wanganui, New Zealand

If anyone has information about the birth details of Alexander Halligan (born about 1837)and his wife Elizabeth McCarthy (born about 1847) I would be delighted to hear from them. Their death certificates give their place of birth as Ireland and New Zealand respectively. Alexander's father was Thomas who may have come from Fermanagh. Family sources say that Alexander was born in Armagh, however the IGI index gives his birthplace as Swineford, Mayo. According to her death record, Elizabeth was born in New Zealand, however NZ BDM and Diocesan archives have not found a birth entry for Elizabeth and I suspect she immigrated to New Zealand. Please can any of their descendants confirm?
