Good Evening help with family line check please

As the title says really I have been researching my line from my great grandfather George Patrick Conway to my great great grandfather John Conway, I believe now I may have found my great great great grand farther micheal Conway but I am not sure and cant help but think I am going off the course I may need a fresh pair of eyes or two.

I know my great grand father was George Patrick Conway born in 1882 in Tullamore workhouse to his father john Conway and his mother Bridget Maguire.

john Conway died in 1892 in Tullamore work house I can find nothing on Bridget's death. I did however find a marriage certificate for john and Bridget from 1868 and he was age 27 with his farther as Michael Conway his age would put his birth date as 1840 if I am correct ?

I can not for the life of me find a birth record for him on the Irish genealogy site the only one with Michael Conway as farther is 1868 which would mean john also had a twin I am not convinced that his my john. am I following the right lines ? maybe john wasn't born in Tullamore is a great possibility

Hi
I can't see his baptism either but I did find a Michael Conway in Tullamore who may be his father.
Michael is in prison for being drunk in 1866 .
He is age 68 5ft 5 1/4 grey eyes and hair committed 30 Oct 1866.He was tried on the 19th Sep 1866 and got 48 hours in jail
There is a daughter Elizabeth bapt 6 Dec 1832 parents Michael and Margaret Crauley.
Godparents John Conway and Elizabeth Crauley.

On the 1901 census Bridget Conway widow age 51 is a servant At Charles st Tullamore .She works for Michael Gorry age 30 Bill poster.
I can't see her on the 1911.

The Catholic registers for Tullamore are online at https://registers.nli.ie/ but many of the entries are very faded
