Athy, Kildare and Dublin

Hi to all,
I have a relative that is going to Ireland and will be researching an ancestor called Mary Ann Smith who was born in Athy, County Kildare 1826, religion Roman Catholic.

Later I assume she lived in Dublin where she was caught stealing cheese and then sentenced in the City of Dublin to be transported to Australia as a convict in 1842.

I would like to get some tips on where to start looking for information about Mary, i.e.who her family were, where they could be buried etc. I have her convict records and the irish/australian transportation register gives a date of her sentence.She states on her daughter's birth cert. in 1850 that she was from Athy, County Kildare.
We really need a bit of guidance so I am hoping someone might know.
Annette Sutton
