The Ryans of Knockeravella, Templedon, Limerick/Tipperary

As accurate as I can find so far:
My gt,gt grandmother Margaret Ryan was born 1825 Knockeravella, Ireland.
Her brother Timothy Ryan (a soldier in 1850, so Margaret's convict records say) was born 1827 Knockeravella. Other brothers were Daniel b 1824 and William b 1829.
Margaret was transported on the " Blackfriar" ship to Hobart, Australia in 1851 as a convict where she married another convict, James Dooley ("Joseph Sommes" Ship) . Margaret and Timothy's parents were William Ryan a blacksmith from Knockeravella and Catherine Donohoe (Donohue) possibly from Cloghilawarreela, Limerick. They married in Pallasgreen in 1822. Catherine's brothers Denis and John Donohue were witnesses. William's siblings were Matthew and Anne.

The family legend is that Catherine's family owned Ballinslore(sic) estate and that she married beneath her. The story also says that Margaret was on her way to Dublin to put a claim in on the estate when she was arrested.

Would love to make contact with anyone connected to this family or anyone with more info.
