Sheehan's from county Cork mid 1800's

Hi, I am looking for more info on my Sheehan relatives who are from county Cork in Ireland. Here is the info I have confirmed:

John Sheehan born about 1841 married Ellen Sullivan born about 1844 in Boherbue, Cork, Ireland. They came to Australia with their 6 children in 1883. I have records of all their children, what I am looking for are John and Ellen's parents, grandparents etc.

I found a marriage record for a John Sheehan and Ellen Sullivan dated 3rd March 1867
John's parents - Jeremiah Sheehan and Catherine
Ellen's parents - John Sullivan and Julia Coleman
I don't know for sure this is them but the marriage took place in Boherbue (right place), 11 months before the birth of the eldest child (right timing) and the names of the four parents also happen to be the names of the four eldest children.

I have also found a birth record for Ellen Sullivan, parents John Sullivan and Julia Coleman dated December 1844. ( is brilliant!!)

All this makes me think it is them but I don't know for sure and wonder if there is anyone who perhaps has the same relatives and can help.
