Provision for marriages not within provisions of 1844 c.81.

11. In all cases of marriages which may be legally solemnized in Ireland, and
which do not come within the provisions of the Marriages (Ireland) Act, 1844,
or any Act amending the same, the parties about to contract any such marriage
shall produce to the clergyman celebrating the marriage a certificate
according to the form A in the schedule hereunto annexed, which certificate
shall be procured by the parties contracting the marriage, previous to its
solemnization, from the registrar of the district appointed under this Act
within which such marriage is intended to be solemnized, who shall be bound,
as far as possible, without fee or reward, to fill up the said schedule, and
it shall be signed by the parties contracting the marriage and by the
witnesses present thereat, not being less than two, and also by the said
clergyman; and the parties contracting the marriage shall within three days
thereafter either deliver or send by post such certificate to the registrar of
marriages appointed under this Act for the district wherein the marriage was
solemnized; and the husband shall in case of failure so to deliver or send
such certificate, be liable in a penalty not exceeding ten pounds, to be
recovered as herein-after provided.
