Patrick Convey of Wales/Co. Mayo and New Jersey

I'm looking for anything on Patrick Convey, possibly from Wales, who married Bridget Hennigan sometime before 1860 in Ballina, County Mayo, and had 7 children: Mary Anne (1860), Patrick (1863), Margaret (1865), John (1867), Bridget (1875-1930), Catherine (1871), and Elizabeth (1877-1953). Patrick Convey was a tailor. They lived on King Street, now known as O'Rahilly St., in Ballina, Mayo, Ireland. All of the children were born in Ballina.

The family moved to Bayonne, New Jersey sometime after Elizabeth was born. Bridget Convey (the daughter) married James Foley of Co. Leitrim on 23 Oct 1892 in St Mary's, Bayonne. Catherine Convey married Thomas O'Brien in Bayonne on 7 Jun 1899. Elizabeth married William Lee (son of Michael Lee and Ellen O'Farrell) on 2 Jun 1902, and she died in Bayonne in 1953. If the other children married, I don't know their spouses' names.

I don't have anything on Patrick Convey. His first child was born in 1860 and last child in 1877 so I imagine he must have been born around 1835-1840ish? I'm trying to find out when he was born (and if it really was in Wales, why and when he moved to Ireland), his marriage info, and when his family came to the United States. He's been a longtime dead-end for my mother.
