Missing marriage records on irishgenealogy.ie
« on: Sunday 07 November 21 02:27 GMT (UK) »
Browsing the Limerick marriages in 1864, I found that between 10 Feb 1864 and the end of the month, there were only 3 marriages recorded. And for March, there were also only 3, on 21, 23 and 26 March. Both April and January were fine.

Are they missing? Or just not transcribed?

Probably due to it being the season of Lent.
Have you compared with other places?

Good idea! I just checked Dublin and they seem fine - lots of marriages in February.

I posted on the Limerick board

about a marriage certificate that should be there:

Clare Journal 15 Feb 1864
On Monday, at Donoughmore Church, Maurice Kirby Esq, Knocklong Cottage, cousin to Patrick Synan Kirby Esq, to Kate Mary, fourth daughter of Edward Finncane (ie Finucane) Esq, Carrickparson

which made me suspicious that some entries might be missing. :-(

I'll email them and ask if there are any missing records that haven't been linked to the site.

That's good to know. I'll see if I can find the marriage in the parish records, that is, if they exist :-)
