Hi I thought you may be interested in an article in the Australian Family Tree Connections magazine March 2003.
It lists a Patrick Tierney married a Jane Kilmartin in County Tipperary Ireland.

On journey to Austalia Jane gave birth to a daughter 2/2/1841 they named her Bridget.

They arrived on board the ship "Argle".
Patrick was on the crew that built the Princess Bridge over the Yarra. Jane died and was interned at the Old Melbourne Cemetery, her grave is now lost.
Patrick remarried Catherine MURPHY she came to Aus on the Brankinmoor.
Children James, Anne, Daniel, Jane, Patrick and Catherine.
Moved to Moranding near Kilmore.
Appears Patrick was burried by a Catholic priest at Kilmore. 18/3/1868.

I'm also researching Patrick Tierney, but he is not the same as above.
