There is a Violet Bradley born in the same area, I think it was 1913. She could possible be his wife. You should be able to find that birth on Irish Genealogy but to find their marriage and check the fathers names you will have to use the Northern Ireland records.
I'm not the best to advise on searching NI records but I'm fairly sure you can not view records online less than 100 years old.

That only relates to births, marriage records over 75 years old can be viewed.   There is a marriage available to view on the above website for Violet Bradley and Robert Moffatt, the date of marriage was 26 March 1936, registered Newry & Mourne, choosing the 'Full' viewing option would let you see a digitised copy of the original registration.

Death records on that website over 50 years old can also be viewed and there is one available for a Violet Moffatt who died on 4 March 1951 with a reported age of 38, registered Armagh. Also a Gilbert Moffatt who died on 10 October 1941 with a reported age of 1, registered Newry.

In the birth registration for the Violet Bradley who was born in 1913, the parents were recorded as Samuel Bradley and Maggie Paul of Maydown (Eglish civil parish):
https://civilrecords.irishgenealogy.ie/churchrecords/images/birth_returns/births_1913/01456/1594883.pdf

The only marriage I can find for those parents' names is the following one in 1891 for a couple from Kiltoney (Kilcronaghan civil parish) which is about 30 miles north in County Londonderry:
https://civilrecords.irishgenealogy.ie/churchrecords/images/marriage_returns/marriages_1891/10666/5886795.pdf

However, that fits well with this family in 1901 and 1911, the birthplaces for the children in the 1911 return demonstrating the move south:
