Kirwan and Vicars/Vickers Lackakera, Latteragh Tipperary

Classification: Query
Surnames: Kirwan, Vicars, Vickers
Looking for anyone researching the above families in the Lackakera, Latteragh area of Co. Tipperary. I have a Thomas Kirwan born abt. 1805 married to an Elizabeth Vicars/Vickers around 1837. They had the following children: James abt. 1839, Edward abt. 1842, Eliza in 1844, Catherine in 1849, Thomas abt. 1850 and Richard in 1851. I found Eliza's baptism in July 1844 in Templederry RC Church. Her godparents were listed as Edward Vicars and Anne Kirwan. Richard's baptism was also at Templederry in 1851 and his godparents were Patrick Vicars and Margaret Kirwan. All the family but Richard (must have died young) emigrated to Newburgh NY in 1853. Family stories have said that one of the families had a minor castle on their property and I have been told by another researcher that the Vicars had a castle named Latteragh castle on their property that was in ruins. I would like additional information on Thomas Kirwan and Elizabeth Vicars such as parents. If anyone else is researching these surnames, please respond.
