What does 'Ors ' mean? Ireland Civil Registration- Deaths

You're gonna be my "go-to" person from now on!! Thanks.

Want another challenge? In an Ireland Civil Registration- Deaths, there are two entries, thus:
Jane Clark Ors Farrel
Jane Farrel Ors Clark
I think Ors is like aka, but I can't figure if those surnames are maiden names or if one is a former married name. Know about that? (No more questions after this, I promise!!)

Ors

An abbreviation, meaning "others", used in case names.
Example:

Afzal, R (on the application of) v Election Court & Ors [2005] EWCA Civ 647

Not necessarily married or maiden, just another name not specified.

I'm not clear how to apply the Ors as "others" in a court case to a name in a death index. The two separate entries of
Jane Clark Ors Farrell and Jane Farrell Ors Clark seem to indicate this is the same person albeit with different surnames at one time or another.
I've never seen this before, so it's puzzling. I would like to ascertain if this Jane who married an Abraham Farrell was married before (and to a Clark).
Thanks for taking the time with me on this.
