I found the 1873 marriage index record for James Roddy and Bridget Rattican. ( You can ignore the other spouse names. They were for other marriages recorded on the same page). You can write to the GRO for a copy of the marriage record which will show the names of the fathers of the bride and grrom and where they were living when the marriage occurred. www.groireland.ie Fill out the GRO form and provide the year of marriage, registration district ( Boyle) and the volume and page number ( 4 and 81). Costs around 4 euros.
By the way, my grandmother was a Norah Roddy from Roscommon but she lived near the town of Ballaghaderreen.
