Welcome to Ireland Reaching Out!
We do not have a parish liaison in Castletownkindalen parish. The RC parish of Castletown-Geoghegan has records starting in 1829. http://registers.nli.ie/parishes/0913 The 1854 Griffiths Valluation head of household listing for Castletownkindalen parish did show a James Hackett in Castletown and Patrick Hackett in Cloonagh. Both could be connected to Michael Hackett.
I assume the marriage occurred in the USA since Donovan is almost exclusively a Co. Cork surname.
I did not see any Hacketts in the area in the online Irish phone book which is only a partial list of phone users.
When your return from Ireland, you may want to consider autosomal DNA testing.
Have a great trip!
Let us know if you have any questions.
