I'm afraid you may be unlucky in your search for a marriage certificate. I noticed in one of our daily papers last week that the former "George's" church, now closed as a church but used by some business owner, had been served with a dangerous building notice! How this affects the parish itself, I don't know. I found the entry in the parish register, which had been deposited by the parish into the Church of Ireland Library. When I am next in the library, I will have a look at the entry again, it might tell me the bridegroom's parish. I'm afraid most of these church entries were terribly scanty, and (unfortunately for you) the marriage took place ten years before State records began. I have just remembered that one of our local shops is run by a Robert McNeill and his wife. I must ask them if they have any ideas about where the McNeills come from. If a name is unusual in Ireland, it is somtimes possible to make an "educated" connection between a John as a bridegroom in one generation, and a birth entry some years earlier, but I have hesitated about making links without some fairly secure corroborating evidence. I'll come back with anything I find, but again, don't be disappointed if you draw a blank with officaldom!
