If one actually looks one can see they are the initials of Patrick O'Brien!

Of course.  :)

Thank you for the suggestions, and apologies for not including the link in my original post. I'm trying to find number 194, but it appears that there were no marriages registered in Listowel between March 3 and April 5 of 1869 (Lent, I presume).

However, in clicking through to a few of them, it seems Patrick O'Brian of the Ballyduff registrar was very fond of these "see another record" notes, because I've already found several others that he's left.

The plot thickens -- here is 194:

I'm still not sure what this means, though.

Didn't fill in proper Form!  Hope they got their money back! ;D  ;D

Because the other one was still in the book, I am guessing they were still legally married?

Yes of course.... it is just the Registration that has gone sideways!

A bit of a tangent, but I was under the impression that the registrar had to attend in person and witness the signing of the registration form for Catholic marriages. Anyone know? If that is so, then seems strange that he would use the wrong form.
