Some passenger lists do exist from that era, but as you say, with names like O'Neil and Kelly, it's a tough row to hoe. I don't know any that mentioned place of origin for individuals. I guess I'd look for death records for yer man and see if there was anything there to glean. The other shot, always sort of a long one, is to find the marriage record and the church in which they wed. It's barely possible there's an ecclesiastical record which might show earlier rites, like baptism. Good luck!
