Although you haven't been online lately hopefully you will get notification of new replies.

Scottish marriage certificates list names of BOTH parents which should help in identifying the correct Bernard O'Neill. If he died in Philadelphia then his parents should also be listed on his death certificate although informant may not know the correct details so more room for error.
Once you know exactly who his parents could be then you can start searching for a birth record in order to trace the family in Ireland.
Extracted births (1864-c1881, not complete) on www.familysearch.org (free)
Birth certificates (1864-1916, actual scan of record) also free- https://civilrecords.irishgenealogy.ie/churchrecords/civil-search.jsp
The church records on that site might also have a record of his baptism
