Looking for my female ancestor's birth and marriage records, and names of her parents.

Honora Fox married (?) John McGrath of British army 58th Regiment of Foot (abt. 1802 - 1862). They moved around a lot with the army and I have found scarce records until they emigrate to New Zealand, where they are buried. 

Husband John McGrath's military records have his birthplace as Annagh, County Cavan.

Daughter Ellen McGrath is baptised on 26 August 1827. Parish: Knockgraffon, New Inn, Diocese: Cashel and Emly, [Tipperary].

Was Honora Fox from the same County Cavan as her husband? Or was she from Tipperary where her daughter Ellen was baptised?

Note: Fox is the anglicised version of Ó Sionnaigh (also appears as O Sheny, O Sunny, Shunny, Shinagh, Shinnick, Shinnock, Shinwick, and more).
