Sorry, I canít help much but posting my thoughts.
Here is Mary Annís marriage to John Joyce in 1849
https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:NVLG-MQ9

1851 1509 /333/ 5
Shows Mary Ann b St Helena.

Was Isaac in the military?  There are a couple of early military records for Oliffe, b Cork but not Isaac.

There are some Irish records around Cork for Oliffe. Civil records did not begin until 1864 (non catholic marriages 1845) so you will need to go to church records.
There are some Oliffe records here https://churchrecords.irishgenealogy.ie/churchrecords/

It may be that Isaac was born to a soldier serving in Ireland also - it is difficult without further records.
