In Ireland, they were often called 'Milliners', which must have delighted actual milliners.

There is a baptism of a Robert Cooper, parents as in the above marriage, in Birr, Co. Offaly, 24th May 1804.
Father's regiment given as 38th Foot.

Perhaps a different couple, just the same names.

Ballygheoghan may well be Ballygegan in Kilkenny, the next county. It would have been pronounced bally-gay-gan.

Witnesses/Sponsors look like Michael Cronan and Anna Walsh. The place is Ballygheoghan.

The last name is M. O'Gorman, the priest.

What made you think it might be Ireland?
Do you think the half-made door in the background is an internal door or a screen door? If a screen door it's less likely to be Ireland I think.
