Madden Family of Kilmeena, County Mayo, Ireland

My grandfather is William Francis Madden (1877-1954) & he was born in Kilmeena, County Mayo on 21 Apr 1877. His Father was William Madden (a farmer) and his mother was named Mary Kelly. I researched a possible wedding date for them at around 1867. Only one of their sons', Michael Madden stayed, lived and died in Kilmeena. There is a tombstone in the local church yard with Michael Madden's name on it. He died in 1955. I met Michaels' son Eddie and his wife Bridie Madden in Kilmeena in December 1980 along with there grown-up children and their respective families. Eddie's son was Michael Joe Madden and the daughter Kathleen was married and her new last name was McIntyre. I am really looking for the older ancestors from both the Madden and Kelly families. Grace Kelly's of Monaco had her Kelly family origins near the town of Newport, which is just 3 miles North of Kilmeena. Perhaps there is a connection there, Iam not sure! Any help on the Madden-Kelly connections is very much appreciated.
