O'Rourke/Rourke/Rorke/Furlong of Wexford

In 1911 Patrick Rourke, the son of Stephen Rourke, married Catherine Furlong, the daughter of Philip Furlong. They both appear to have been from Raheenahoon, Co. Wexford. Catherine was born about 1887, and Patrick, who was a widower was born about 1877. In 1921 Patrick died and left behind at least five children that I know of: John, Mary (Polly), Philip, Patrick and Robert. The children seemed to have picked up the "O", making them O'Rourke. I have only discovered this week, that, according to Griffith's valuation, there was a Mary Rorke living in Raheenahoon sometime between 1848-1864. This may very well be Stephen Rourke's mother. If anybody can add any further information to this please email me. I would be delighted to here from you
