          A Seaport and market town in County Antrim, forty two miles N.N.W. from Belfast. The name of the place, Ballycashlin, signifying in the Irish language, "Castleton," is derived from a castle built here in 1609, by Randolph, Earl of Antrim, the remains of which in the year 1856, were removed, and the site let for building ground. Its advantages for sea bathing and magnificent scenery adjacent, have rendered Ballycastle very attractive in the summer. The ruins of a very old castle called Dun-an-einey, and an old monastic ruin called Bun-na-Mairge, are in the neighbourhood. A Stamp Office, and Stations of the Coastguard and Constabulary are established here. The Northern Banking Company (Ltd.) have a branch of their bank here.

Monthly new fair the second Tuesday in each month. Fairs - Easter Tuesday, the last Tuesday in May, 26th July, the fourth Tuesday in August (the great August fair), the last Tuesday in the months of October and November. A narrow gauge Railway is constructed from the Northern Counties Line at Ballymoney to Ballycastle, a distance of 16 miles.

         Ballyclare is a flourishing market town in the County Antrim, ten miles from Belfast, and beautifully situated in the fertile valley of the Sixmilewater. It has a fine market square, in the centre of which is the market house and town hall, and a beautiful monument erected by the inhabitants to the memory of the late Dr. Cunningham. In this square there are a Protestant hall, and a branch of the Northern Bank. Near the town are the extensive Bleachworks of Messrs. Kirkpatrick Bros., and the North of Ireland Co.'s paper mills; and linen is manufactured by other establishments in the vicinity. A railway connecting the town with the seaport of Larne is doing an extensive passenger, mineral and general traffic. A mine, a short distance from Ballyclare yields a mineral called Boxite, which is largely shipped to America, via Ballyclare and Larne. Within an area of two miles there are thirteen manufacturing establishments - spinning factories, paper mills, bleach greens, and beetling engines. A Court of Petty Sessions is held every third Thursday. There is a market every Tuesday for butter and pork; and markets - chiefly for cattle - are held on the third Wednesday of each month. The fairs are held on the last Tuesday of January, the second Tuesdays after 12th May, 12th July, and 12th November. The May fair is one of the largest and best for horses in the Province of Ulster.

          Ballymena is a stirring, business, and thronged market inland town, in the County of Antrim - twenty seven and three quarters miles from Belfast - pleasantly situated two miles above the confluence of the Braid and the main waters, and on the high road from Belfast to Coleraine and Londonderry. Large quantities of linen cloth are manufactured in the neighbourhood, and brought to the Ballymena bleach greens, of which there are many in the vicinity of the town, where the water is abundant and pure. It holds the highest position as a linen market in the United Kingdom. General Sessions of the Peace are held four times a year, and Petty Sessions every fortnight. There is a Town Hall, a Court House, a large Protestant Hall, a couple of Temperance halls, a Roman Catholic hall, and four commodious hotels. There is a Cottage Hospital situate at the "People's Park." There are branches of the Belfast Banking Company, the Northern Banking Company, the Ulster Banking Company, and the Provincial Bank of Ireland. There are also a Newsroom, a Protestant Society, and a Young Men's Mutual Improvement Association, and other useful societies. There are three local newspapers - "Ballymena Observer," (established in 1855), and the "Ballymena Advertiser," and the "Ballymena Weekly Telegraph" - published on Friday. The Parish Church (totally destroyed by fire towards the close of 1879, and since splendidly restored at a cost of over £8,000), is beautifully situated adjoining the demesne of Lord Waveney, at the head of Castle Street, was completed and opened for Divine service in 1855. Every window in the edifice is of richly stained glass. The total cost of the Church was, originally, about £5,000, the whole of which sum, except £1,500, was provided by Lord Waveney (then Colonel Adair), the late lord of the soil. It is called the Church of St. Patrick, and is universally regarded as a model of architectural taste. In connection with this church is a new Parochial School House, which cost £1,500; and a Diocesan School House was established in 1827. There are five Presbyterian Churches, a Roman Catholic Chapel, one Methodist, and a Baptist Meeting House, and an Independent Church. A local Linen Company was established in 1864, and an extensive Yarn spinning factory has been erected near Bridge Street, the capital invested in this concern being £50,000; whilst a large Weaving factory has been built convenient to the Leighinmohr bleachworks, at enormous expense. There are also a large flour mill and other public works in the town. There are four weekly markets - namely, on Tuesday, for pork; on Wednesday, for grain; on Thursday, for pork; but the principal one is on Saturday, and it is a large linen market. Fairs, 26th July and 21st October, and the last Friday in every month. Population in 1861, 6,774; 1871, 7,931; and in 1881, 8,883

Railway - Eleven passenger trains to and from Belfast daily, and six on Sundays



          A Market town and parish in the County of Antrim, seated on a small tributary of the Bann. The town lies over an area extending from Milltown on the Rasharkin Road, to Rodenfoot. It is the capital of the two baronies of Dunluce, and the largest seat of their population and trade. The linen manufacture prevails in the neighbourhood. Branches of the Belfast Bank and of the Ulster Bank are established here. General Sessions of the Peace, for civil business only, are held quarterly in each year; Petty Sessions first and third Monday in every month. The Court House is in Charlotte Street. The Parish Church was erected in 1782, near the site of an ancient church, of which some fragments still remain. The other places of worship are for Presbyterian, Roman Catholics, Unitarians, Covenanters, and Methodists. In 1887 a beautiful Presbyterian Church was erected at Rodenfoot. The trustees of Erasmus Smith's Fund established a school in 1813. A large market is held on the first and third Thursdays in each month, and a weekly market on Thursday. Fairs - May 6th, July 10th, and October 6th. Population in 1861, 2,603; in 1871, 2,930; 1881, 3-409. In 1867 a new Town Hall was erected by public subscription. The building comprises Town Commissioners' Offices, Newsroom, Library, and Large Assembly Hall. In 1868 the Church was nearly rebuilt, and now presents a fine front. The tower is surmounted by a handsome spire. There is no linen market now, such trade being confined to drapers. The markets are supplied largely in the season with flax, pork, oats.

          Is a market town and seaport (formerly a Parliamentary borough) in the County of Donegal. The harbour looks right through the centre of the bay's entrance into the open Atlantic. Immediately above the head of the harbour a large body of the Erne water falls tumultuously over a ridge of rocks sixteen feet above the level of the ordinary tides, and forms a cataract beautiful and interesting. This is one of the finest, if not the finest, salmon leap in all Ireland. About 75 tons of salmon are taken annually, and so good is the eel fishery that upwards of 10 tons have been taken in one night at one weir. Nearly five hundred yards above the fall a handsome stone bridge, of fourteen arches, connects the two portions of the town. The fishing commences about the middle of April, and continues till the latter end of August. A new Court House has been erected on the Mall. There are also two banks, the Belfast and the Provincial; the Belfast, a most ornamental building surmounted by a clock tower, cost £4,000; a Union Workhouse, a Dispensary, Public Schools, and a Barrack - the last is unoccupied. A Harbour Board has been formed, and improvements to the harbour and its entrance are being carried out. The Parish Church, a very neat structure, surmounts the summit of a hill on the West side of the town. Presbyterian and Wesleyan Methodists have churches, and within the parishes to which the town belongs are other places of worship for various religious denominations. There are also two Roman Catholic Chapels. The market - a good one for grain, besides the usual commodities, is held on Saturday. There is also a market on Thursday for flax and pork during the season. The fairs are held on the second day of every month, except on 17th September. Population in 1871, 2,958; 1881, 2,840. The population in 1890 is about 3,000

Except that it is intersected by a few houses near its centre, it consists almost entirely of a long wide street running parallel with the sea, and having in view the Isle of Man, the Mull of Galloway, and the south-west coast of Scotland. The houses are good, and remarkable for cleanliness; the sidepaths are well paved and kirbed with granite, except at its northern end, which requires improvement. It is also remarkable for its beautiful strand - one of the finest along the entire coast - and for the salubrity of its air, and the orderly, peaceable disposition of its inhabitants, and, as proof, has neither doctor nor policeman. Of late it has become the favourite resort of the citizens of Belfast; and, owing to the enterprising efforts of Mr. Hamill B. Glover, who has established a temperance hotel and dining rooms, not less than 10,000 people visited the curious little town during 1889. Well appointed brakes from Belfast pour into it in their hundreds daily; and coaches, in connection with Messrs. Moores' Belfast and Bangor steamers, add greatly to the number. The town and adjoining lands are the joint property of Captain J. D. Hamill Stuart, representative of the Hamill family, whose ancient seat, Ballyatwood House, is about half a mile distant; and of John Mulholland, Esq., D.L., whose beautiful mansion and demesne are close to its southern extremity. The public buildings most noticeable are the Coastguard Station, a large block of houses built of blue stone, also the Second Presbyterian Church, which has been re-erected by its members and friends at a cost of nearly £3,000, with a tower of 100 feet, erected by the widow of the late Henry Gamble, who for many years ministered to this congregation. The present minister of the new church is the Rev. John Rogers. There is also a First Presbyterian Church, a large new church situated on an elevated position overlooking the town - the Rev. J. Anderson is the minister; also two very handsome School houses, built at the sole expense of Mr. and Mrs. Mulholland. There is also a very pretty little parish church, and close to it is the residence of the Rev. J. O'Reilly Blackwood, rector of the parish.

          A flourishing market town in the County Down, twenty miles S.S.W. from Belfast, lying on the old coach road from Belfast to Dublin and on both banks of the Bann. The principal street, which commences at the bridge, is straight and spacious and forms part of the thoroughfare between Belfast and Dublin. There is a considerable market held every Monday, for the sale of flax, pork, butter and grass seed, and a market for the sale of grain, hay, straw, etc., every Tuesday and Friday. The Market House, erected at the cost of the Marquis of Downshire, is a handsome building. New enclosed markets have been erected on sites granted by the Trustees of the Marquis of Downshire. A monument has been erected in Church Square to the memory of Captain Crozier, R.N., who was a native of Banbridge and who was second in command in Sir John Franklin's Arctic expedition. It is a very beautiful object. There are a Parish Church a chaste and elegant structure; two Presbyterian and two Unitarian Churches, the Baptist and two Methodist Chapels, and also a Roman Catholic Chapel, a Temperance and an Orange Hall, which are handsome edifices. The town is lighted with gas. The Petty Sessions are held every alternate Thursday, and Quarter Sessions are also held in the new Courthouse, Victoria Street.

          A seaport town in the County of Down, ten miles from Belfast. The town is very ancient. It is said the first stone and lime house erected in Ireland was built in Bangor. Close to the Episcopal Church is to be seen part of the ancient Abbey walls destroyed by the Danes in 821. The town has greatly improved; the harbour is commodious; the pier on which a sum of £5,000 was expended by the proprietor R. E. Ward, Esq. This, however, has become quite inadequate to meet the requirements of the place, and steps are being taken towards the erection of a new pier and the extension of the harbour. There is a fine beach, well adapted for bathing. The shore on all sides of the bay is clad with houses and villas for the convenience of the people visiting this favourite resort. Steamers ply between Belfast and Bangor several times daily during the summer season. The principal hotels - "The Royal" and "The Mermaid" are in most agreeable positions, facing the sea, commanding beautiful views of the Lough and of the County Antrim on the opposite side; "The Imperial" in Main Street, which is a very comfortable, and convenient to the trains; "The Commercial" in Main Street; "The Grande" upon the Parade; and "The Stag's Head" at the foot of Ballymagee Street, are all well patronised. The "Pickie" Hotel is very pleasantly situated on a terrace immediately over looking Pickie Rock. These conveniences and attractions, together with hot and cold baths, render this one of the most agreeable localities during the Summer months. Bangor Castle, the residence of the part proprietor of the town, Mr. R. E. Ward, D.L., J.P., is surrounded by an extensive demesne, tastefully planted, and is contiguous to the town; and the home residence of His Excellency the Earl of Dufferin and Ava is within two miles of the town. A Court of Petty Sessions is held by the magistrates of County Down on the first and third Wednesday of each month, at 11 o'clock a.m. The Masonic Fraternity possess a magnificent Hall, recently built, principally through the exertions of Lord Clanmorris. The new Parish Church is situated in Hamilton Street, and is a fine specimen of Gothic architecture. There are three Presbyterian Churches. The one formerly occupied by the Second Congregation is vacant at present, the minister and congregation having recently erected a very handsome edifice for public worship in Main Street. The Methodists have one place of worship. There is also recently erected a Roman Catholic Chapel, and Orange and Templar's Halls. A parochial school, an infant school, and a dispensary are the established charities. Fairs - January 12, May 1, August 1 & November 22. Population in 1861, 2,531; in 1871, 2,560; 1881, 3006. Bangor is under the Towns' Improvement Act for Ireland (1854); and the Commissioners have had public pumps erected in the streets, and the town is lighted with gas. The sewerage system is good, and the supply of water abundant. The Belfast Banking Company Limited, have a branch here. The "Bangor Gazette" is the local newspaper.

There are two railway stations in the town - one is the G.N. Ry. Co., at which there are ten trains daily; and the other is the Cavan, Leitrim, and Roscommon Railway. A light railway, opened from Belturbet to Dromod, via Ballyconnell, Ballinamore, and Mohill, joins the M.G. W. Ry. at Dromod for Dublin, and thence on to the new coal mines at Arigna
The mail cars leave the Post office, Belturbet, at 6-15 a.m. for Ballyconnell, Swanlinbar, Killeshandra, Carrigallen, &c., and the cars return with the mails every evening at 6-15 p.m., in time to despatch the mails for Clones and Belfast. The mails are sent by a post car from the Post Office every evening at 7-20 p.m.; with the mails for Belfast via Clones


          The population of which numbers about 5,000, is situated in a beautiful and well watered valley, convenient to the Camlough Mountains, and about two and a half miles from Newry, and three miles by electric tramway. The scenery, from the combined effect of hill, vale, and wood, is very attractive. The town is the property of Mr. John G. Richardson, who has spared no expense or trouble to make it, what it is sometimes called, "the model town." In this he has received the heartiest support from the other members of the Bessbrook firm. The town has certain peculiarities. In the first place, it is without a public house, and recently the house holders, when their opinion was tested by a vote, declared by a majority of six to one that they were satisfied with this arrangement. In the second place, no police barrack has been erected or required there. Bessbrook is remarkable for its yarn and linen manufactories. The process of manufacture is carried on in it from the growth of flax to the finished article - family linen, a pocket handkerchief, or a table cloth. The firm employs over 4,000 people in the production of these various articles, and their huckabacks, towelling, fronting linens, drills, diapers, and damasks, are known the wide world over. The damasks made at Bessbrook by machinery are equal in fineness to those made by hand looms. The company have also extensive quarries, where the beautiful blue granite is hewn out, dressed and polished for different markets. It is now extensively used in England, Scotland, and America for monumental and other purposes. In "Johnston's Guide to Philadelphia" (speaking of the Bessbrook exhibits at the exhibition there) we find the following - "A large portion of the make population of Bessbrook is employed in the Granite Quarries, which supply, for monumental purposes, the blue and grey granites so difficult to procure elsewhere. The stone has been largely used in the erection of some of the finest public buildings, and the polished staircase in the Manchester Town Hall was supplied from the Bessbrook Granite Works. The religious denominations are well represented. The inhabitants generally are remarkable for their regular attendance at their respective places of worship. A fine structure is that belonging to the Irish Church, capable of holding 500 or 600 people. The Presbyterians have also a commodious church, seated for a similar number. The Friends have a place of worship, large enough to accommodate 700 or 800, and the Wesleyans have a neat chapel. The Roman Catholic Chapel is a spacious edifice. The village has a medical dispensary, a news room, and a lending library, a town hall, and young men's institute. In the winter months the news-room is well patronised, and the library, which contains a careful selection of elegant works, is largely used by the work people. The day school is divided into three departments - boys, girls and infants - under efficient teachers. Some idea of the attendance may be formed from the fact that there are three principal teachers, six assistants, and five paid monitors and monitresses. The town, which presents a clean and even picturesque appearance, is adorned with two squares, suitably planted. It has also a capital ball alley and ample cricket ground. Contiguous to its fine mill pond are neat plantations, interspersed by walks, making a pleasant promenade for the operatives, who, as a rule, are temperate, healthy, and contented.

It is celebrated for the superior "Bush" whisky produced, and of which large quantities are exported to England, independent of that retained for the consumption of Ireland, which is likewise very considerable. There is also an extensive manufactory of spades, shovels, and other agricultural implements; and the River Bush is celebrated as one of the best salmon rivers in Ireland. The town, which is pleasantly situated near the mouth of the River Bush, from which it derives its name, is neatly built, and is often visited by tourists en route to the Giant's Causeway.
