          Antrim, a market town (formerly a Parliamentary borough), in the County of Antrim - 17 miles from Belfast, 93 from Dublin, 10¾ from Ballymena, and 5 from Randalstown - situated on the banks of the Sixmilewater River, on the great road from Belfast to Londonderry. General Sessions of the Peace are held four times a year, and Petty Sessions on the second Wednesday of every month. The Court House, situated at the lower end of the town, is a commodious building. The Belfast and Northern Counties Railway passes at an inconsiderable distance North of the town. Antrim is the terminus of the Great Northern Railway. The large bleaching and finishing works of the York Street Flax Spinning Company, Limited (Belfast) are situated about 1¼ miles from the town, and employ a large number of hands. A Linen factory has recently been erected on the site of the old Paper Mill, and it is proposed to erect the contemplated new county asylum at Holywell, about one mile and a half from the town. Lough Neagh approaches within half a mile of the town, and communicates with the latter by the Sixmile River. The Church of Ireland is a neat edifice, with a square embattled tower, surmounted by a finely proportioned spire; there are two Presbyterian Churches, one Unitarian, one Methodist, and one Roman Catholic Chapel. The Union Workhouse and a public Dispensary comprise the principal charities. The markets are held on Tuesday and Thursday. Fairs - January 1, May 12 and November 12.

          A Parish and seaport in the Barony of Lecale and County of Down, 103 miles from Dublin, 24 from Belfast, and 6 miles S.E. of Downpatrick. It is pleasantly situated on a high promontory on the coast. It was at one time a place of considerable importance, and retains, as monuments of its ancient grandeur, five old castles. The Lord of the soil is Aubrey de Vere Beauclerk. Ardglass is the most important fishing station in Ireland. There has of late been a great decline in the herring fishing here as at other places. Formerly four hundred fishing boats were regularly employed here from May till October; now the number scarcely exceeds sixty. The value of fish caught formerly amounted to £40,000 or £50,000, now it scarcely reaches £5,000. The population in 1891 was 800, but during the summer months it is much higher. The places of worship are the Church of Ireland, Presbyterian, Methodist, and Roman Catholic. There are two National Schools. A railway from Downpatrick to Ardglass, opened in July, 1892, has already done much to improve the town. As a suitable resort its beauty and suitability are becoming known, and the rush of visitors and excursionists is very great. This town is likely to improve in the future.
