Peanut, you don't say where you are from but you need to get the marriage cert of James Magarahan. Have you checked freebmd.org.uk or is this entirely Irish? BMD can be ordered from www.groireland.ie and you can search th 1901-1911 census online http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/. I don't know if County Cavan is there but have a look.

Have you tried Irish Family History Foundation? It's commercial so I can't give the website - just google them. You can search indexes for free, but viewing a record costs 5Euro, I think. I've found the site useful, albeit for Cork records.
