My younger daughter is married to John Gleeson of Dublin....with a Tipperary background. However, what really caught my eye was the name KENNA. Have been trying to trace my grandmother's brother's (Thomas Johnson) wife - maiden name MARGARET KENNA (sometimes McKenna) of Monslatt, Killenaule, County Tipperary. He followed her to New York in early 1900's or earlier and they married later. Heard Flushing Meadows and Tilly Foster mentioned. Included among his children was Thomas Johnson, who had a distinguished career in the USAF. If no sign of a connection...no need to reply.Best wishes from Ireland!
