Do you have a date of birth for Kathleen?
This would let you source her birth certificate and then have both her parents' names

Do you know who the witnesses at the wedding are as they could provide clues i.e. be siblings
Kearney & Bourke/ Johns & Fox/ Mannion & Finan/ Donohoe & Curley
Byrne [Carthy], Keeffe/ Germaine, Butler/ McDermott, Giblin/ Lally, Dolan
Toole, Doran; Dowling, Grogan/ Reilly, Burke; Warren, Kidd [Lawless]/ Smith, Scally; Mangan, Rodgers/ Fahy, Calday; Staunton, Miller
Further generations:
Brophy Coleman Eathorn(e) Fahy Fitzpatrick Geraghty Haverty Keane Keogh Nowlan Rowe Walder

If deceased how old and what year,people were a bit more accurate with their ages in later society.

If you google 310 Blarney St ,Cork it will take you to Google maps and you will see the sadly dilapadated bungalow or cottage in its present day state,if you click on the photo you can go for a drive up and down the long street which is built on a steep incline.

I don't have a date of birth for kathleen all I have is a copy of her marriage liscence
 1950 which is all the info I have thAt is where I got her fathers name michael her address at the time. It has her down as a minor but I don't no what age that would be?possibly 16? I have checked tHe certificate again and the witnesses were a martha buckley and a john joseph o sullivan I did go to cork about 6 year ago and couldn't believe what I saw I think it was the only house left in its original state all bordered up. Really got a sense of how the must of live?fantastic didn't want to leave.

Suggest you try contacting church on marriage licence they should have her mothers maiden name recorded.
