Irish Rooneys in Leicestershire/Yorkshire

I'm desperately trying to find out about my mother's g grandmother Mary Rooney, who married a John Moffatt in 1867.
They were both from Ireland, but I have not managed to find a single iota of information about where in Ireland they might be from.
Mary Rooney's father was John Moffatt, a shoemaker, and I have no idea if he ever came to England.
Mary got married at the Holy Cross Chapel in Whitwick, Leicestershire, before moving up to Yorkshire.
If anyone knows anything about these people, or has any advice on tracking down more information on them, please let me know.It's one huge brickwall.
