Not Bessborough avenue?
Can't think of a Bessborough area in Dublin.

There is a Bessboro apartment complex in Terenure which may be named after something existing in the area, but I'm not familiar with that part of town.

if he was born in the area then possibly Rathfarnham or Rathmines parishes then, dont think RootsIreland have either

What was this guy's occupation on the marriage cert ?

there's a Bessborough Parade between Ranelagh and Rathmines, not to far away, goes between the Tennis Club in Mount Pleasent Square and Rathmines Church

If he was a policeman I think his service record should say which county he was born in, probably DMP if he served in Dublin, I think their records include a specific parish and county of birth

Can I assist with a lookup in Jim Herlihy's DMP book, or the RIC records?

There may be some clues in directories if this guy actually lived at this Bessborough or was linked to the resident family, rather than just worked in some capacity or lodged there

I think I've seen that DMP book, does it give civil parishes as well as county ?
