Henry Witherington -Carrickmacross

Hi All,
I have hit a bit of a brick wall with one strand of my Irish Ancestry and would be v grateful for some help.
My GG Grandfather was Henry Witherington/Withrington 1833-1904 - a Merchant and farmer.
He was born in Co Fermanagh, married in Dublin, and lived much of his life in Carrickmacross ,Co Monaghan with his wife Harriet Whitley.
I know his fathers name (John Witherington) and occupation (farmer).
I have a close DNA match with a lady who traces her tree back to William Withrington b1737 and Catherine Fanning b. abt 1741 who lived in Dublin but cannot link Henry to this family.
If anyone has any information about his parents or suggestions I would be v grateful.
Many Thanks,
