keating with two husbands?

Can any one guide me on how to look for marriage certificates for Northern Ireland. I have a James Keating (Born 1850) married in 1876 to Ann Jane Mcnulty, his father is listed on the marriage cert as James Keating deceased. ( mother is Ann Fitzsimmons.) I took a look at James sister Ann's marriage certificate(Born 1847) and they have the same mother but her father is a Christopher Keating also listed as deceased.
How is it possible for a mother to have two children three years apart, with two different husbands with the same surname.

I thought if I found the marriage certificate or even death certificates it might shed some light on things.

just a little confused.
