I didn't have enough clues to find much information about Patrick Dunne.

But I did find a brief newspaper item about his conviction.

The Dublin Evening Post.  Thursday June 11, 1835. page 3.

"RECORDER'S COURT - Four notorious characters named Dunne, Traynor, Boswell and Dempsey, were convicted yesterday of having robbed several vessels in the river near the custom-house.  They were severally sentenced to transportation for seven years."
   

 

Two days later, the Dublin Observer, published the following paragraph :

The Dublin Observer.  Saturday June 13, 1835. page 284.

"CITY SESSIONS - GREEN ST.  - Four notorious characters named Dunne, Trayner, Boswell and Dempsey, were convicted on Wednesday of having robbed several vessels in the river near the custom-house.  They were severally sentenced to transportation for seven years."   

The only difference in the articles is the spelling of the name Traynor and the second item identifies the court house, which still stands in Dublin.
