Title: Address for Elizabeth Dooley on Marriage Registration?
Post by: Wexflyer on Thursday 01 October 20 19:24 BST (UK)
Address on the marriage registration for Elizabeth Dooley is hard to read. Looks like Lightwater to me, but there is no townland of that name in Wexford. Any other ideas? Last marriage on the following page

A bus stop!
How very odd that the name should have survived like that.
