Jeremiah Bergin from Queen's County (Co. Laois), Ireland

I really have reached a brick wall in relation to my paternal grandmotherís family.
Her name was Josephine Bergin b.1883-1890 in Dublin possibly. I still cannot find her birth cert despite several searches.
Her fatherís name is Jeremiah Bergin of Queenís Co.[Co. Laois] a farm produce agent [Census 1911] aged 68 years [=~ b.1843].
That census lists two other children, Austin (22 yrs) & Ethel (16 yrs) - all children born in Dublin and then living at 20 St Patrickís Place, Drumcondra. Josephineís age is given as 24 yrs but Jeremiah was 6 years out in giving Ethelís age that leeway has to be given. I since discovered a daughter Clementine b.~1881 d.1899.
I have a birth cert for Ethel (10/04/1891), family living at 8 Palmerstown Place, Dublin. Her mother was given as Marion Bergin (nee Davis) who died 1910 in Dublin.
I have a marriage cert for a Jeremiah Bergin to Monica Caffrey both of 15 Anneís St ? at St. Minchanís Church on 15th Oct 1882. Iím not sure if this is our Jeremiah but there are not many Jeremiahs around!
His father is given as Thomas Bergin, a farmer and her father, John Caffery, a dealer.
So far I cannot get any clues in what part of Co. Laois Jeremiah was born or indeed who his parents were?
Obivously, if I knew the locality, I could look up church records to verify if Thomas was his father.
As it stands the family first appears for definite at the Birth of Ethel in 1891 and disappears [except for Josephine & Ethel] at the marriage of Josephine to my grandfather, John Fleming in Glasnevin in 3/06/1911.
Josephine [d. 23/01/1955] & Ethel [d. 05/03/1951] were buried in the same plot in Deans Grange Cemetery along with John Fleming [d. 16/04/1944] and my parents Cyril [d. 09/07/1960] & Mona [d. 10/02/1989] Fleming.
Perhaps someone out there might know of some links to this family?
Thank you,
Dave Fleming
