O Briens in Bantry??

Ignore the title please.
I need help tracking down a marriage record between a Julia o Brien and Michael o Brien.Julia was born in 1873-74 michael was born 1863-64.
I have had considerable trouble looking for a marriage record of some form.They are from the townland of ballinvoher turloughmore (civil parish lackagh) only one record in all Ireland shows up but it wouldn't make sense as Julia would be only 10 years old and Michael 20 years and they're from Galway not bantry.

Also they had their first child in 1896 and had one after the other ,it's says they have been married since 1895-96
I thought marriage records were Mandatory after 1875 or is there a list of missing records?if anyone could help me I would be very thankful!The reason I am asking this is I am finding trouble proving where Julia o Brien came from as a family member doesn't know even though his mother was o Brien one record in all Galway shows up in tuam at the date 1873-1874 in galway

Please post the census links for the couple.

Civil registration of marriages was compulsory from 1864 but there would be some gaps in the initial years were people forgot.

Have you verified Julia's birth name is also O'Brien from the couple's children's births?

yes I edited the post and for multiple births her maiden name is o Brien also I was told she was o brien,Julia also gave fairly accurate age estimates comparing 1901 census age to age when she died so I'm inclined to just go off age but I couldn't find any marriage record in tuam parish either

Julia is 9 years younger than Michael in 1901 but only 6 by 1911. However, she's saying she's 12 years older than 1901!
Suggests that they're not great on ages.

Have you got some of their kids birth records to be sure though that that is the right Julia?

I don't see a (O) Brien (O) Brien marriage between 1885-1900.

I had a look myself and children appear for Michael O'Brien and Julia O'Brien from 1896 onward with the names matching that on the census. It also gives their address as Ballinvoher which matches up with the census. I couldn't find a marriage either. It seems like it could be a case that the marriage wasn't registered for some reason.
