From Louth RC parish registers, difficult to see but definitely there once you acclimatize (though not sure about the sponsors' surnames), zoom in on right page near top, under the heading 'December' (1841), 3rd entry down, against a partially obliterated '8' (ie. 8th December):

Margaret of William Bell & Mary Little
SS Patk G(arvey?) & Margaret Cu(?)
