Mullally and Harpur Families of Wexford, Ireland

I am researching the Mullally/Harpur family tree and have hit a brick wall. My grandparents Patrick Mullally and Mary Mullally nee Harpur lived in Enniscorthy. I believe that Patrick was born abt 1868. Mary was born abt 1877. I also believe Mary and her family came from the Glynn/Kilurin area. I have searched vital records and have determined that both Mullally and Harpur are spelt with a lot of differences, including Mulally, Mullaly, Lally, Molloy and Harper, Harpor. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated

Thank you Gins and Reggie.

Gins this Molloy record could be the marriage record for Patrick and Mary. In the 1911 census where they are recorded as Mullaly it is stated married for 12 years which would fit the Molloy record. However their daughter Mary was born 1891 and Thomas 1897.
Questions: Is Mary aged 10 in the 1901 census a daughter from another marriage of Patricks or Mary's ? or had they not married until 1897 or had marriage records been destroyed and they remarried?
So many questions and exciting and thanks again for your interest and help. Helena

If the above are the births of their children, the only way to check/be sure, would be to buy the certificates.

Thank you Gins I will do that and see where the results lead. I suspect there is an incorrect recording of the family name which may have followed from one document to another. I really appreciate your research work on this. Thanks once again Helena
