Yes, Godparents.
Mmm not sure about Edward's name, people on the deciphering board might be worth asking, also a check for other workhouse births to see if they are people who work for the workhouse and do this regularly.

Thank you for your help, it is much appreciated  :)

I think they are on number 2166 as well
http://registers.nli.ie/registers/vtls000635198#page/154/mode/1up

Not always together but I think their names turn up quite often
2113 and 2114

Dead end with those two I'd say.

You've been a fantastic help!  I now have definite proof of the facts, with you finding the images instantly for me.  Thank you so much!

I will post to the deciphering board. 

Thanks again

It is interesting, although I'm not sure how useful it is that Anne was still using O'Brien when she married.
I wonder does that mean her mother never married, or at least not until Anne was past an age when she would change her surname to a step father's name.

Interesting indeed, and something I shall endeavour to investigate.  Love family history!
