Brennan/Poers/Galvin/Riley Families in Fall River, Massachusetts

Looking for info on any of these families....Bridget Powers married Michael P Brennan in Waterford, Ireland and lived in Bally Duff Glen, not far from Waterford City and raised 8 children there. The eldest, Alice Brennan moved to Fall River, Ma either prior to or with her parents. There she met John Galvin, married and raised 7 children. Only the oldest boy, Michael Galvin married an Elizabeth Riley, also of Fall River and they had 3 children, John, William, and Mary. Both boys would enter the priesthood and hence became known as Fr. John and Fr. William Galvin. Their younger sister would also enter the religous life as Sister Mary Olga, RSM, the Sisters of Mercy. Any info within Ireland or in Fall River on these families would be appreciated.
