Any idea on when they immigrated or where in Tipperary?
How old at death?

These are only possibilities:

Tipperary is divided into North Riding and South Riding:

The closest time for any records to 1872 are the Griffith Valuations for Tipperary which took place 1851.

North Tipperary:

William Heffernan, Parish of Glenkeen, Townland Gortaniddan, Poor Law Union Thurles,tenant of
Thomas Burke,Esq.
#5 house and land 0 acres 2 roods and 29 perches

William Heffernan, Parish Twomileborris, Townland Ballydavid,Poor Law Union Thurles, tenant of John Russell
#7 Puddle Street, house and garden 0.1.27

You can use to find common Parishes' for the Ryan's & Murray's. A much simpler version of
Griffith Valuation.

The Tithe Applotments 1820-1839 are an earlier tax on land used now as a census substitute.
There are 127 occupiers of land, there is probably less than that as often people would rent/lease more land but since this is an incomplete Tithe record, just parish and townland you can't tell how many houses. A family can only live in one. The dates for Tipperary are from 1823 by the look of things. You can also look up the Ryan (hundreds I'm sure)and Murray's.

If the above are correct then Thurles RC records commenced in 1795. These records are available on an Irish History Foundation, not for profit but fee based. This is pretty much the only way to find Parish records prior to 1864.

After 1864 civil records are also on
You can also look at their Irish collection, same webpage but scroll down the left side till you get to UK & Ireland,
click and down again to Ireland (7) and click on that
and enter names.

There are Thurles in the telephone book for Tipperary including 8 in and around Thurles.
