Brennan/Galvin/Powers/Riley Info in Fall River, Massachusetts

Looking for info on any of these families. Bridget Powers married Michael P Brennan in Waterford (Bally Duff Glen, near Waterford City) and lived and raised 7 children there. The oldest, Alice Brennan went to Fall River either with her parents or they followed later. Alice married John Galvin and they had eight children. Only the oldest boy, Michael married, Elizabeth Riley and they had three children. John, William and Mary. The boys later became known as Fr. John Galvin and Fr William Galvin, both of the Fall River Diocese and their little sister later became known as Sr Mary Olga, RSM, a Sister of Mercy. And for me, there went the Galvin name for the rest of my ancesters. Looking for history in Ireland if you can or additional info in Fall River. Thanks
