Researching O'Connor (Connor/Connors) Family in Doneraile

Roots Ireland shows the baptism for my 2x great grandfather taking place July 17, 1820 in Doneraile Parish. His parents are listed as John (Connor) and Mary O Brien, with their address as Ballydineen. Additiional Roots Ireland records indicate two siblings: Patrick (baptized 1824) and Jane (baptized in 1816). James emigrated to the United States (his obituary states at age 21, maybe around 1841?). I believe he lived in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and eventually settled in Monroe, Wisconsin, where he had lived for many years when he passed away in 1910.

I am planning a trip to Ireland in the spring and would love to try and find out where they lived (if possible) and if there are still O'Connors in the area.
