That's what I thought! They subsequently had a daughter called Norah. Hmmm. Could Margaret's mother have been Norah and it's a mistaken entry? I hardly think the person filling it in would put a mother's name deliberately.

Thanks all. John it is so...

Edit: mother was indeed Norah, going by the church record.

For what it's worth, I have an Irish civil marriage record where the groom's mother is named instead of his father, said groom having been born out of wedlock.
