We would need a bit more context. McKenna is a fairly common name in Belfast. We could no doubt find lots of Vincent McKennas, so a bit more information would be needed to narrow it down.

Start with what you know. Where and when were you born? If you were born in Northern Ireland you can request your birth record from GRONI (General Register Office Northern Ireland): https://geni.nidirect.gov.uk/ It should include your father's name, address, and what he did for a living. If he and your mother were married, you can request their marriage record from the same source, which should include their ages, addresses, occupations, and parents' names (although older ones only include their fathers' names).

Depending how long ago we're talking about, the 1901 and 1911 census of Ireland are online: http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/

And you can search Belfast City Council's cemetery records: https://ssl.belfastcity.gov.uk/burialsearch/burialSearch.aspx

Hope that gives you something to work with.
