Zion Chapel, Kings Inns Street, Dublin, Ireland

Although this marriage appears to have taken place in Zion Chapel, Mallow in 1805 (or did I misread the date?), for some reason it was entered (many years later) in the Register of Zion Chapel, Dublin, Ireland - CR/7/4A/1 at PRONI.

It could have been this Rev William Cooper, or his father (also Rev William Cooper), who excommunicated a certain Mr Cronin, thus bringing about the early stages of the Plymouth Brethren.

Most of the original punctuation has been omitted, as it tends to confuse.  The text reads as follows:
