The tall letter, either an l or a t in the middle, doesn't fit in with pensioner. The first letter is far more like an A than the P in Parish. Auxiliary would seem to fit better.

I'm happy enough with the RIC bit to be honest. Everything else matches.
He had joined in 1832 and was pensioned in 1862. he died in 1891.

They married in the Parish Church, not St Patrick's.

It is certainly Pensioner, perhaps with a slight slip of the pen.

James Martin and Eliza yes, surname McGlo*y (?)... Could be McGlosky although there are only 2 in the '01 census.

Judging by the spelling of Driscoll (Driskoll) later on, it may well be McCloskey/Cluskey heard as Gloskey.

It is 'J' and 'turn out' - referring to the rig/pony & cart.

I was wondering if you could work out the name of the informant on the record for Laurence Kenny. Nannie / Maurice Kenny maybe?
