Another Chils.
James Creagh  8th July 1857.

Note this is spelt "Cray" as it is currently pronounced.  So the priest writing down the name spelt it as it was pronounced.  A couple of yaears later in the same catholic baptism books it is now spelt Creagh.

You are very lucky to have such legible parish records available.

The Fry surname is unusual.
Have you tried to research Anne Fry's roots ?

John Creagh  4th Nov. 1855

Also the date is incorrect on Richard Creagh.  It was September 1861 (not 1851)

Here is the Marriage of Martin Creagh to Ann Fry.

It is not possible to say what the date it is recorded very badly.  Feb is above and June is below.
So it's either march 1st, April 1st or May 1st 1855.
This is all I will get on your family.  Its just a co-incidence that I am researching two other families from Rathdowney who were alive at the same time.  Shiel and Creagh (not related).

I hope all of this was a help,

Peadar

No marriages during Lent in 1855 so that rules out 1st March
My guess is 1st of May for wedding.
Marriage was allowed on St Patrick's Day.

Lots of weddings between Christmas & Shrove Tuesday all through the 1800's.
