What makes you think she came from Roscommon? Have you any documentation?
Have a look at www.irish-roots.ie these are the church records. There are several Catherine Mullanys so it will be difficult to identify the correct one without knowing a townland or parent name.
Do you have a death cert? Some Australian death certs give quite a lot of genealogical info.
The IGI on www.familysearch.org there are also several Catherine Mullanys born in the Roscommon area

The LDS British Isles Vital records set of 16 CDs lists many County Roscommon births for Catherine Mullany.
Who did Catherine marry in Australia?
What were the names of her parents?
What were the names and birth order of her children?
About what year was she born?
What was her religion?
Was she transported to Australia as a convict?

Catherine arrived as an orphan in 1849 aged 17, married a JohnCarlton? Smith, and lived in Sydney.
I have ordered I think!! my great grandmother's, Catherine's daughter, marriage certificate hoping to find new information- she too is Catherine.

"I have all the Famine orphan girls listed and have a Catherine Mullaney from "Roscommon, Craghan" who arrived to Sydney on the Tippoo Saib on 29/07/1850. She was a 17 year old Catholic girl whose parents, Thomas & Catherine, were both dead.

I didnt have that she married a John Carlton Smith?/ "

Craghan should read Croghan, a village to the south of Boyle.

Maybe you should write to noted Croghan Historian Thomas Mullany, Breadrum, Boyle, County Roscommon.

  :D
My ancestor, Catherine Noon, came out on the same voyage and she was from Croghan too.  As she is listed as an orphan and these were the famine years, I have assumed that she was in the Boyle Workhouse.   She paid for her brother, martin, to come out in 1857.

If you are interested, I have set up a family history website where I have tried to piece things together:   http://www.thenoones.id.au/index.html

After the ship's arrival, the captain had a scandalous 'liaison' with one of the girls off the ship!   You can read about it on the website.
