Looking for a marriage in Riverstown or Taunagh
« on: Friday 17 November 17 18:19 GMT (UK) »
I found a civil registration marriage certificate on irishgenealogy.ie, but can't find the corresponding Church marriage.

The marriage of Michael Reilly and Bridget McDonagh took place on 12th May 1874, at the Roman Catholic Chapel of Riverstown, Registration District Sligo.

I searched for Riverstown on https://registers.nli.ie and found it was an alternative name for Taunagh. There is a marriage register for this parish, covering 1874, but it doesn't seem to contain the marriage I want.

I think I must be in the right area, because the priest's name on the civil reg. certificate is given as Owen Feeny, and several marriages on the Church register (which is in Latin) have priest's name Eugene Feeny.

Can anyone help me find the Church register? I have checked the indexes on findmypast and ancestry, but found nothing.

Yes, I agree Bridget could be the daughter of Arthur McDonagh & Margaret Sweeny. But there were a few other Arthur's about so I can't be sure. That's one reason I want to find the Church register.

Arthur McDonagh and Margaret Sweeny were determined to have a son called Arthur. One was baptised in Offally in 1858, and another in Sligo in 1862. I assume they both died young, because a third Arthur was baptised (and registered) in Longford in 1867.

I wondered if they could have been married in a neighbouring parish, and Riverstown was a copying error (clutching at straws here).

or the Parish Priest may forgot to fill in the register that day but did fill in the paper work to register the marriage.
