    From Derry Journal 6 August 1926

'The following is a list of the dispensations in Banns,
commonly called the "Marriage Lines," from the records at
St. Eunan's, Letterkenny.'

'...the couples dispensed in Banns are usually put down to
the parish from which the application was made for
dispensation, though frequently only one of them belonged to
that parish. The records in Banns are mainly concerned with
the parishes near Letterkenny, though occasionally an entry
relative to a parish at a distance is to be found. J.
