The family could have moved anywhere- Canada, America, Australia within the UK etc. I looked at the 1852 Griffiths Valuation for the two civil parishes which cover Bandon and did not see a Michael Sheehan record.
Have you considered DNA testing? Possibly you will have matches with others who have Sheehan connections and maybe you will figure out where the family went to.

Thank you for your help. Michael's brother, Edward also migrated to Greenwich and married there and stayed in the area, according to the 1841 census he was born in Kinsale 1806-1811 but I've been unable to find his baptism and thus his parents there.
I've had a DNA test which is on Ancestry, My Heritage and Gedmatch but as yet found no match to the Sheehans'?
