Hello,
It seems as though there is a transcription error of the church marriage record. Here is a link to the RC marriage document found on familysearch.org.
Robert Brennan and Mary Ann Murphy were married on Jan 9 1881. The witnesses and the priest's name were transcribed correctly.
When you open the page they are couple #128.

Thank you.
I should make it a habit to look at the images for an answer, before posting the question.
Thank you for responding and have a Merry Christmas!!
