Have you investigated the surnames of the witnesses to the marriage? It’s unusual to have a ‘randomer’ as a witness. Any connection? Usually there is one, frequently family, often the best man & bridesmaid (or in this case possibly just best friends). Have you checked Thoms for the Dublin addresses each gave? Were they boarding or guest houses?

Mostly the witnesses have a connection so it's worth trying to follow them up. I have found however that some churches, such as St Andrews Westland Row have the same witnesses for multiple marriages. Usually parish workers.

Hi All
Thank you for Tips.
I have the brides birth record . Also those of her siblings.
I also have the marriage record of her father f Thomas to mullholland.

Unfortunately it does not give the name of her paternal grandfather.

This is making it difficult to establish his lineage. I was going on the false assumption that they wrecousins due to the dispensation. I agree this was due to the banns.

Is there a possibility that the application for this dispensation would be recorded anywhere else.

Have never heard of such things but the relevant Diocesan archive would know for sure.

Check at the front or back of the register - sometimes the priest made a separate list of all dispensations.
