O'Donoghue/O'Leary Ballinagree/Kilcorney

Hi all! I'm looking for more info on Jeremiah O'Donoghue b 1842 and married Catherine O'Leary b 1857. They left for NZ in around 1877 and I'm pretty good for info from that point on. It's the Irish end I'm struggling with.
Jeremiah parents were Jeremiah and Ellen nee Walsh. I've heard they had a farm at Horsemount/Kilcorney. He had at least one sister, Julia, who married Catherine's brother, Dan O'Leary.
The O'Leary family lived at Ballinagree. I've heard that Catherine decided to get back in touch with her older brother Timothy in her later years, saying "there's been a Tim O'Leary on that farm for 400 years, there'll be one there now!" Apparently, he was still there.
Are there any cousins of mine still around the area? Where were these farms? Are they still in family hands?
