Co Wicklow to West Yorkshire in 1840s

Some of my ancestors emigrated from Co Wicklow to work in the West Yorkshire coalfields in the 1840's. They were living first in Whitwood (near Normanton). There was a small but strong irish community (living in what was known as Irish Row) in 1851, and many gave their birthplaces as Wicklow. Did they all originate from the same village in Wicklow?

I am interested in the surnames SENNETT, RYAN, KENNY or KEANEY, McGOWAN. Would appreciate any information that locates any of these families to a parish in Wicklow.
