Can't find a marriage

According to the 1911 Census Roger Kinahan and Mary Boyce have been married 15 years but I can find no trace of their marriage in the civil records at irishgenealogy.ie or Family Search. The records of their children's births tally with what's on the census so I would expect to find the marriage.

Just wondering if someone could check Roots on the off-chance it's listed there.

Rodger Kinihan married Mary Boyce on Nov 1, 1894 in the parish of Tubber and Rosemount, Westmeath. Catholics, no parents listed, Thomas and Catherine Barry are the witnesses. That's a parish record trancription off Roots Hermy.

Btw another Roger Keenehan (father, uncle, grandad?) married in the same parish in 1844.

Apologies for my typo - it was Mary, not Margaret - as you've found thanks very much.

And just because I want the parents names (or at least the brides father) there are no such names given.
I'm 95% sure the bride is who I think she is but that she marries about 30 miles south of her home place.

I believe the 1844 marriage (to Catherine Rafferty) is the parents.

Still can't see their civil record even with the date known. Maddening.

Indeed! And if the bride is who I think she is that's the third member of that family I couldn't find a civil marriage record for.

Mary was probably a minor when she married - a Mary Boyce was born 2nd Feb 1878 in Corry, Ballinacargy, Co Westmeath, daughter of John Boyce, farmer and Mary Leavy [Mullingar 1878 Group ID 8863705 http://bit.ly/2EGBYTx] - maybe that's why the marriage wasn't registered???

My hope is that she is the Mary Boyce born in 1875 to William Boyce and Ellen Robinson but that means she's marrying in her husbands parish rather than in her own home place in Rathowen.

Mary born in 1878 died aged 5 months old.

Only a genealogist could read that with both a wry smile and a nod of the head.

This nut was easier to crack than I'd thought.

First two children born to them in the mothers home place in Rathowen so I think I have my proof.

One last thing...

I can't find a birth record for their son James born after Kate (b. 1899) and before Ellen (b. 1901).
Would someone mind checking Roots in case there's a mention of it there?
