The parishes look like Kilclooney, Drumcree & Kilmore to me. This looks be Alexander Albin’s brother Hugh, marrying in 1856, if it’s of interest:


And sister Mary in 1853:


(Note that Alexander Albin was a witness).

Tradition was to marry in the bride’s church which I think in this case was St Mark’s in Portadown. It opened around 1826 and before that I would expect the congregation used Drumcree, which has records from 1788. I don’t think either of those records are on-line so you would need to get someone to look them up in PRONI if you are interested in them.
