KENNY and CLANCY - Kingston early 1870's

I'm at a brick wall (I think) with one branch of family tree:

I have a Thomas John Kenny born in Kingston Ontario June 28, 1874; baptised in July 4 1874 at St. Mary's Cathedral in Kingston Ontario. Thomas was the son of Philip Kenny and Mary Ann (some records reflect Mary Ellen) Job / Jobe.

It is the line from Philip Kenny back I'm having difficulty with.

According to the marriage of Philip and Mary Ann - Philip's parents were Hugh Kenny and Rose Clancy. The sponsors of Thomas' baptism were Michael Clancy and Mrs. Mary Clancy. This right now seems to be the only clue I have to finding more about Philip.

We believe the family came to Ireland and that Philip is from Ireland. It seems to be such a common name - both Kenny (and its' variations) and Clancy - that maybe connecting Philip somehow to Michael - I'm thinking cousin or nephew.

I'm guessing I'm wondering if someone else is following the same line of Clancy? or maybe has some suggestions on a good place to look for leads on Irish to Canada around the Potato Famine?
