The place to start would be with a marriage cert to establish further details - e.g. places of residence for the bride & groom, father's names, occupations etc

There's a possible match for the marriage of the BMD Index for the marriage as follows :

  Name : Robert James Ovington
  Event Type : Marriage
  Quarter and Year : Jul-Sep 1939
  Registration District : Baltinglass
  Volume: 2 / Page: 203

A matching index entry appears for a Mary Anne Driver

Once you have confirmed father's names and occupation you could search for possible birth for Mary & Robert to establish their mother's names and then search for any siblings...

The most likely birth reference for Mary Ann seems to be this one : https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/F1M7-RTB

They were married in 1970 (my mam has some of their wedding photos). Coolinarrig is only about 5km from Baltinglass, and Coolamaddra is only 10km away so all very close.
