Strabane & Lifford Strangford
Saintfield, is a small market town in
County Down, nine miles S.S.E. from Belfast, and nine N.W. from Downpatrick,
situated at the intersection of the roads branching respectively to Belfast,
Downpatrick, Ballynahinch and Comber. Tonoughnieve, the Irish name of
the town means the "Hill of the Saint", or "Saint Hill",
translated into Saintfield. On the 9th June, 1798, a brisk skirmish
occurred here between a party of the yeomanry and the insurgents, when the
latter obtained the advantage, and the temporary possession of the place.
The town is indebted for its present neat appearance and prosperous
condition to the late Nicholas Price, Esq., the proprietor and lord of the
manor, who, in 1802, improved the town in several respects, and erected a
market house and hotel, and gave ground in perpetuity, and £50 of a
donation towards the building of a very handsome school house. The
late seat of this gentleman (now that of his successor, James C. Price,
Esq.), is situated in a beautiful demesne, about a mile North of the town.
The weaving of linens and other fabrics give employment to a number of
persons in the neighbourhood. Petty sessions are held every third
Tuesday. The Parish church is a large and rather elegant structure, in
the early English style, with a square tower. The Presbyterians have
two churches and the Roman Catholics a chapel. The market is on
Monday, and the fairs on the last Wednesday of every month.

Stewartstown, is a small market town
in County Tyrone, about thirty five miles W. from Belfast, situated on the
road from Dungannon to Coleraine. This place derived its original
name, Stewartstown, from Sir Andrew Stewart, to whom James I., granted the
surrounding district, in the year 1608, or soon afterwards, he erected a
castle, or rather converted other buildings into one, and laid the
foundation of the present town. About two miles from the town is
Stewart Hall, the seat of Earl Castle-Stewart, who derives his titles of
Baron and Earl from this place. The town consists of a spacious square
and three principal streets, well arranged, and the houses well built with
stone, and roofed with slate. The market house stands in the centre of
the town. Petty sessions are held on every alternate Monday. The
Church of Donaghenry is a neat and commodious structure, as also the glebe
house, the living is a rectory. The other places of worship are two
Presbyterian meeting houses, a handsome Wesleyan Methodist chapel, and a
Roman Catholic chapel. The market is held on Wednesday, and the fairs
in the first Wednesday of every month. The town contained in 1851,

STRABANE & LIFFORD
Strabane, is a market town in County Tyrone, 102
miles W. by N. from Belfast, 19 N.N.W. from Omagh, finely seated on the
River Mourne, and on the mail road from Londonderry to Dublin. The
environs of Strabane are replete with interest and beauty. It was an
inconsiderable village until James I., in 1611, granted the surrounding
district to the Earl of Abercorn, who subsequently erected a strong castle,
and built a town, which now ranks as the third in the county. The town
consists of ten principal and several smaller streets, the houses,
generally, are well built, and many of them are spacious and handsome,
especially in such of the principal streets as are of a more recent
formation. Since 1831, great improvements have been made, and the town
has been lighted with gas. The manufacture of linen and the business
of bleaching are carried on very extensively in Strabane and the
neighbourhood. The flax and tow mills ("Sion Mills") of the
Messrs. Herdman, three miles distant, are extensive. The trade in
grain is considerable. The Belfast Banking Company and the Provincial
Bank of Ireland have branches in operation here, and there is a bank for
savings. Strabane gives the inferior titles of Baron and Viscount to
the Marquis of Abercorn. General sessions of the peace are held in
January, April, July and October, and petty sessions on the second Monday in
every month. The affairs of the town are efficiently conducted by the
Town Commissioners, the old corporation being abolished. The church,
built here in the year 1619, by the Earl of Abercorn, has, since 1641, been
the Parish church of Camusjuxta-Morne, and has been considerably enlarged
from time to time, it is now a spacious cruciform structure, in the Grecian
style, with a cupola, and the arms of the founder over the principal
entrance. The Presbyterians have three churches, the Wesleyan and
Primitive Methodists one each, and the Roman Catholics a spacious chapel.
There are several excellent public schools for gratuitous education of both
sexes. these, together with a fever hospital, a dispensary, and a union
workhouse, comprise the benevolent and remedial institutions. The
market days are Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, for corn, provisions and
various commodities, together with linen. There is a market held on
Wednesday for flax, which is well attended, and of increasing importance.
Fairs, February 1st, May 12th, August 1st, and November 12th, there are
likewise, monthly fairs on the first Thursdays on the other months.
The town of Strabane (including Lifford), contained in 1851, 5,076
Lifford, is situated on the Western bank of the Foyle,
opposite to Strabane. Although ranking as the county and assize town
of Donegal, it is, in fact, notwithstanding in another county, no other than
a suburb to Strabane, with which town it is allied in matters of business
and local interests. It consists principally of two streets, and
contains the Donegal county jail and court house, the former is a very
handsome and spacious building, in the castellated style, adapted to the
classification of prisoners, the latter convenient for holding the various
courts - which are the Assizes and Quarter Sessions. The places of
worship are, the Parish church, a neat edifice, a Presbyterian Meeting
House, and a Roman Catholic chapel. The county infirmary, and a
bequest by Sir Richard Hansard, Bart., for educating children of the parish,
are the charities. The fairs and markets have been transferred to

Tandragee, anciently "Tawnatclee" or "Tawnatelee",
is a market town in County Armagh, twenty four miles S.W. from Belfast,
seated on the River Cusher, and at the intersection of the road from
Portadown to Newry. The Newry Canal, which comes within a mile and a
half of the town, offers all its facilities of communication for trading
with the large towns of Belfast and Newry. The Dublin and Belfast
Junction Railway passes 1 1/2 miles from the town, on which there is a
station between Tandragee and Gilford, at the Madden Bridge. The town
stands on a steep hill, and consists of two principal and three smaller
streets. It is on the estate of the Duke of Manchester. The
mansion, or castle of Tandragee, is a large and modern baronial pile,
erected by the late Duke when Viscount Mandeville, and occupying the site of
an ancient castellated and fortified residence. Adjoining the castle
is a beautiful chapel, and the entire pile, with its adjunctive beauties,
are well deserving the visit of the tourist. The flax market is large,
and some of the finest of this article in the kingdom is produced in this
district. Petty sessions for the division are held once a fortnight.
The church, originally built by Oliver St. John, and which was nearly
demolished during the wars of 1641, was rebuilt in the year 1812, on the
site of the old church, and is a very handsome Gothic Structure. It is
now one of the handsomest village churches in the North of Ireland.
The other places of worship are for Presbyterians, Methodists and Roman
Catholics. There are two schools, supported by the Duke of Manchester,
there is also a clothing fund, supported by the Duchess of Manchester.
The market, which is one of the most extensive in Ireland for the sale of
flax, is held on Wednesday. The annual fairs are July 5th, November
5th and there are fairs on the 2nd Wednesdays in the other months of the
year. The town contained in 1851, 1,496 inhabitants.

Warrenpoint, is a seaport in County
Down, thirty five miles from Belfast, and five from Newry. A castle
was built near this place in 1212, by Hugh de Lacy, to protect the ferry
across the channel where it narrows, from which it was called Narrowwater
Castle, it was destroyed in the war of 1641, and was rebuilt by the Duke of
Ormond in 1663. The site of the present town was a rabbit warren,
whence it is said to have derived its name, and in 1780 was but little
known. The town comprises several respectable streets, diverging from
a square off the seaside, many of them are large and well built and for the
accommodation of visitors in the bathing season, there are several well
furnished and comfortable lodging houses in pleasant situations, hot and
cold baths and two good inns. The prospect from Seaview, where there
are several beautiful villa like houses, is remarkably grand, embracing the
whole bay, the quay of Rostrevor, and the adjacent wood, together with the
entire vale, diversified with extensive plantations, elegant seats, and
pretty cottages. Large vessels trading to Newry are obliged to lie
here, where the water is deep, good anchorage, and perfect shelter, as the
further passage up the channel is intricate and perilous, from the
obstruction of rocks. There is a good and convenient quay here, at
which large vessels can load and discharge their cargoes. A
communication between this port and the ports of Liverpool and Glasgow is
maintained by steamers, by this means large quantities of agricultural
produce, cattle, poultry, eggs, and oysters are exported, and British and
foreign produce received in return. Petty sessions held on alternate
Wednesdays. The church is a neat building, in the early English style,
erected in 1825, and recently enlarged. The Parish church at Clonallen
is a mile distant. The Presbyterians, Unitarians and Methodists have
each their respective places of worship. The Roman Catholic chapel
here is a large and elegant one. Fairs are held on the last Friday of
each month. The town contained in 1851, 1,769 inhabitants.
