Most marriages for such an early date will give little detail (usually date, bride, groom and perhaps names of witnesses). Which church was Rev. Hugh McIntyre of Loanends attached to? Once you know which church it will be easy enough to check what records survive and if they've been microfilmed by PRONI- https://www.nidirect.gov.uk/publications/proni-guide-church-records

Hi. very interested in the information you have on Edward McCourt, is the Rickamore you refer to Rickamore Road ? What sort of mill was it ?

Rickamore is the townland (we only got road names in rural areas in fairly recent times (c1970 in my area)-

Griffith's Valuation & the Valuation Revision books (PRONI) might provide more property details-http://www.askaboutireland.ie/griffith-valuation/
