I would start with UNITED STATES FAMINE IRISH PASSENGER INDEX, 1846-1851 I see a bunch of Johanna Dillon listed

Hi great grandparents were McCarthy's with most of them  emigrating from Abbeyliex, County Laois..or Queens County as it was known before the early 1900's. I've had some luck posting messages on the Parish boards for various county's in Ireland. You might have some luck there. :)
