I have moved your post from Introduce Yourself to the Ireland/County Kilkenny forum. I assume you meant Kilkenny Ireland in your post and that you are looking for her Irish heritage. If I am incorrect please let me know.

Have you got her marriage certificate to John Lyon? It would show the names of her parents which would assist. I note also that the QLD BMD index records her as Maria when she married. Her death certificate should state the length of time in Australia/Qld which could help to narrow things down.

As you already have a thread on this topic, I have moved your new post to the end of your existing thread, just so we can keep all the information in one place.
Also, since your original thread was placed in the Kilkenny county-wide forum and your new post was placed in the Kerry county-wide forum, for now I have moved your thread to the General Irish Family History Forum, until her birth place is clarified.
Could you also clarify whether her father's name is Thomas or Patrick?

I have moved your thread back to the Kilkenny county-wide forum. As a suggestion, have you searched the Irish Family History Foundation site for a baptism for Mary-Maria Brennan? I ran a quick search specifying the parents as Patrick and Margaret and there appeared to be a couple of potential matches. You can search for free but you need to pay to view the records.
