It's most likely William Forbes.

Look at the third marriage down for a William Forbes in the link below, it took place about 6 months earlier than the Tedford-Magee marriage, in the same church, and the witnesses were... one William Tedford and one William Williamson:

If you search for Cloncore in Griffith's Valuation, you will see a William Forbes listed, the print date was 1864:

Added: BTW, note the witnesses to the other marriages on that page, I'm wondering if William Williamson was connected with the church in some way, for example, maybe a sexton?

Thanks a lot. I'm very happy to go with Forbes. The link you gave sort of swallows up the "r" too. The Tedford record looked to have a dot above what then looked like an "i" but it was probably just a mark on the page.
I think you could be right about William Williamson too. It makes sense.
