          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, and recently a splendid Hotel (Marine Hotel) has been built; at the shore also a new Pier has been put up by H. M. McGildowny, Esq., having a steamship calling at it regularly. The Northern Banking Company, Limited, have a branch of their bank here. The weekly general market is held on Tuesday; and for oats, etc., on Saturday. There is a butter market every Tuesday ad Friday, and pork, &c., every Tuesday. Monthly fair the second Tuesday in each month. Extra 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 by the Northern Counties Line at Ballymoney to Ballycastle, a distance of 16 miles.

Post Office - Mrs. Black, postmistress. Letters from Belfast, Ballymoney, Ballymena, Coleraine, and Londonderry, via, Ballymoney, arrive every morning at 9-40, and every evening at 2 and 6-40 o'clock.

         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, containing two statute acres, 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 Company'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, pork, eggs and fowl, 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.

          Or as it is more appropriately called the "Stewart Settlement of Tyrone," has much improved latterly, owing to the exertions of the market improvement committee in conjunction with the farmers of the district. The scenery in the vicinity of the town is beautiful. In the Market Square stands a fountain, subscribed for and erected by the inhabitants in 1836, in memory of the late Sir Hugh Stewart, Bart. The Clogher Valley Railway Station is within easy distance of the town. The monthly fair is held on the second Friday of each month; market weekly (Friday); Petty Sessions the third Tuesday in each month.

          Ballymena is a stirring, business, and thronged market inland town, in the County of Antrim - twenty seven and three quarters statute 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. A Town Court is also held every alternate Friday. There is a Town Hall, a Court House, a large Protestant Hall, a couple of Temperance halls, a very commodious Y.M.C.A., a Roman Catholic hall, and four commodious hotels. There is a Cottage Hospital situate at the "People's Park," and the "J. H. Orr Memorial Home," Flixton Place, in connection with the Ladies' Ballymena District Nursing Society. 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 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 Sir Hugh E. Adair, Bart., 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 four Presbyterian Churches, a Roman Catholic Chapel, one Methodist, and a Baptist Meeting House, and an Independent Church. A new edifice in connection with the latter is in the course of construction at Clonavon. 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 three large weaving factories have 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 two Landbuilding and Investment Companies. Of late years the Hemstitching and Embroidery industry has been rapidly developing here, and at present the town can boast of three very extensive concerns, where this work is carried out, and where, altogether, hundreds of girls find employment. 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 also 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; and in 1891, 9,121.

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



          Ballymoney is a market town, with a population of 3,032, is situate in the parish of Ballymoney and barony of Upper Dunluce. It is the capital of the North Antrim Division of the County (46 miles by road and 53½ by rail from Belfast), and is the largest seat of the population and trade. The linen manufacture prevails in the neighbourhood. The Braidwater Spinning Company have extensive spinning mills at Balnamore two miles distant. Branches of the Belfast Bank and of the Ulster Bank are established here. General Sessions of the Peace, for civil business only, are held four times in the year, during the month of April, June, October, and December. The Court of Petty Sessions is held on the third Monday each month. The Court House is in Charlotte Street. The Parish Church, a handsome and imposing building, was erected in the year 1782, opposite the site of the ancient church, the tower of which is still standing in good repair. On a semi-circular slab inside this tower is the following inscription:- "This church was builded to the gloyre of God A.D., 1637." The other houses of divine worship are for Presbyterian3 (3), Roman Catholics (1), Unitarians (1), Covenanters (1), and Methodists (1). The First Presbyterian Church, erected in 1777, is a large and commodious house, and has recently undergone considerable internal renovation. The Secind Presbyterian Church was rebuilt in 1887, and is a pretentious structure, built of freestone, and its lofty spire gives the building an imposing appearance. The Third Presbyterian Church, erected in 1834, is rectangular in construction, and is built of black stone. The interior presents a very neat and comfortable appearance. The Roman Catholic Chapel is the most imposing building in town. It is built principally of black stone, the spire (120 feet in height) and dressings being of sandstone, which forms a pleasing contrast. It was erected at a cost (including schools) of £12,284. The Reformed Presbyterian Church, while plain in style, has lately undergone considerable alteration and improvements. The Unitarian and Methodist Churches have also recently been renovated. There are a large number of schools in town and neighbourhood. In the town there is a Model National School, a school in connection with the Parish Church, one under the care of the Methodist body, and one connected with the Roman Catholic Chapel. There is also a school for intermediate education, and a ladies' boarding school. There is a nicely enclosed park, opening off Castle Street, occupied by the Cricket and Lawn Tennis Club (established in 1853), which has an extensive membership. Under the Parliamentary Redistribution of Seats Act there are now sixteen polling places in North Antrim Division, viz.: - Armoy, Ballymoney, Ballywatt, Ballycastle, Bushmills, Ballintoy, Corkey, Clough, Carclinty, Cushendun, Dervock, Derraw, Dunseverick, Killagan, Portrush, Rasharkin, comprising an electorate of almost 9,000. The member for the division is Mr. C. C. Connor, M.P., Notting Hill, Belfast (Unionist). The markets are extensive, flax, pork, oats, butter, and eggs being the principal commodities. The flax market is one of the largest in Ulster. There is also an extensive cattle market, twice each month, which is patronised largely by buyers throughout the province. Fairs - May 5th, July 10th, and October 6th. There are two town halls, one of which was built by public subscription in 1868. This building, which is in High Street, comprises Town Commissioners' Offices, Newsroom, extensive Library, and Large Assembly Hall. There is a large Protestant Hall on the opposite side of the street, where the meetings of the North Antrim Constitutional Association are held. In 1885 a branch of the Young Men's Christian Association was opened, and has a large membership. The hall is in Charlotte Street. The Route Temperance Establishment (a limited company) was opened in Market Street five years ago, and is in a prosperous state. New premises in Main Street have recently been purchased by this company for the extension of the cafe business.

          Is a small market town in the County Down, thirteen miles from Belfast, the property of Mr. R. W. B. Ker. At the last census there were some 1,500 inhabitants, but during the past few years the town has grown considerably. The places of worship consist of a very neat Church of Ireland, three Presbyterian Churches, a Methodist Church, and a very handsome Roman Catholic Chapel.

          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. Over 100 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 net fishing commences about the middle of March, and continues till the latter end of August, but the rod fishing continues till October. There are 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 surmounts the summit of a hill on the West side of the town. Presbyterian and Wesleyan Methodists have churches, and a new Methodist Church has been built on the Mall. There are also two Roman Catholic Chapels. At present the Shiel Hospital, a magnificent gift to the town, is being erected. The market - a good one for grain, besides the usual commodities, is held on Saturday. There is also a pork and firkin butter market on Thursday all the year. The fairs are held on the second day of every month, and on 16th September. The population in 1891, 2,440 in the township, but this does not include some of the suburbs, which should be taken  into account. A new hall for entertainments has been built, capable of holding 300 to 400.

          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, and pork, every Tuesday and Friday. The Market House, erected at the cost of the late 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 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. The "Banbridge Chronicle and Downshire Standard," which was established in 1870 as a weekly paper, is now published bi-weekly, the days of publication being Wednesday and Saturday; its proprietor is J. E. Emerson, and the offices are situate in Bridge Street. The market days are Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday, the first named being the most important. Fairs - January 12th, June 9th, and August 26th, being noted for their extensive horse fairs; in addition to the old horse and cattle fairs, horse fairs in connection with the usual cattle fairs have been established, and are held on the first Tuesday of February, March, April, May, July, October, November, and December.

          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 old 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; there is a 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 arrangements have been made for the erection of a new pier and for 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 Grand, the Royal, and the Abercorn - 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 very comfortable and convenient to the trains; the Commercial, in Main Street; the Downshire Temperance, Main Street; and the Stag's Head, at foot of Ballymagee Street, are all well patronised. 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. The far-famed Helen's Tower, and the home residence of His Excellency the Marquis of Dufferin and Ava, are within two miles of the town. A Court of Petty Sessions is held by the magistrates of County Down on the second and fourth Wednesday of each month, at 10-45 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 two Presbyterian Churches. The Methodists have two place of worship - one in Sandy Row and the other in Hamilton Street. There is also a fine Hall connected with the Sandy Row Church, in Main Street, which was formally opened by C. C. Connor, Esq., Mayor of Belfast, in 1891. There are also a Roman Catholic Chapel, a Cottage Hospital, and Orange and Good Templar's Halls. Fairs - January 12, May 1, August 1 & November 22. Population in 1861, 2,531; in 1871, 2,560; 1881, 3006; and 1891, 3,889. Bangor is under the Towns' Improvement Act for Ireland (1854); and the Commissioners have had public Waterworks constructed, and erected pumps in the streets, and the town is lighted with gas. During the past year a number of unsightly old houses were purchased by the local authority, pulled down, and a handsome Esplanade constructed on the site which they occupied. The sewerage system is good, and the supply of water abundant. The Belfast Banking Company Limited, have a branch here. The "North Down Herlad" is the local newspaper.

          In the County of Fermanagh, on the border of County Donegal, and within three miles of Ballyshannon, is an improving little town, which had obtained a far-famed reputation on account of the lovely Parian and other ware manufactured there at the only Porcelain Factory in Ireland. It has also attracted considerable attention, being the place where that wonderful piece of mechanism the Sluice Gates have been erected, designed by F. Stoney, Esq., C.E., for the Lough Erne Drainage and Navigation Board, for the purpose of regulating the waters of Upper and Lower Lakes Erne. The River Erne from the mouth of the Lower Lake to Beleek (Belleek), a distance of three miles, has had its bed deepened and all the fords taken away, so that steamers can run through Beleek all the year round, Summer as well as Winter. Direct water communication has thus been opened up to Belfast from Beleek. J. G. V. Porter, Esq., Bellisle, Lisbellaw, has put on a steamer for tourists on Lough Erne, leaving Enniskillen daily at 10 o'clock, arriving at Beleek at 12.45; and returning from Beleek at 3.45 p.m., reaching Enniskillen in time for trains to Sligo, Omagh, Derry, &c.  There is a magnificent Hotel built by Mr. D. Johnston, to meet the largely increased number of anglers and tourists. The river Erne, which flows majestically past the hotel, being the popular resort of anglers, and there splendid salmon and trout fishing is available. There is a good view of the Erne and the Sluice Gates. The Fishery is owned by Mr. R. L. Moore, of Derry, who has taken the Donegal residence of the late Thomas Connolly, M.P., which he occupies during the Summer months; it is a statute mile from Beleek. Beleek is owned by Mr. William McBirney, of Charlemont, Washington, U.S.A., an absentee landlord who has never yet visited his estate. It was bequeathed to him by his brother, the late David McBirney, of Dublin. There is a Church of Ireland Chapel of Ease at Beleek, the Parish Church being four miles distant. There is a neat Methodist Church occupying a central position in the village; and a very fine Roman Catholic Chapel, recently erected through the efforts of the parish priest, Rev. John Canon McKenna, Pettigo. There is a monthly fair established, which is a decided success, and is held on the 17th of each month; June Fair on 19th. The Enniskillen and Bundoran Railway runs through the towns, and there are three trains daily. A monthly Petty Sessions Court is held.

          A thriving market and fair town in the County of Cavan, situated on the River Erne, which is crossed by a bridge of tree arches (three). The town is about four miles from Lower Lough Erne, and when the water is high, steamers and barges sail up to it from the lake. Several dredgers are at present cleaning the river. There is a large military barrack (vacant), a Protestant Church, a Roman Catholic Chapel, a Methodist Chapel, and a Presbyterian Church, several schools, and three hotels. Large butter, corn, hay, and pork markets are held weekly. Valuation of town in 1889, about £360; expenditure, £270. Population in 1891, 2,000

          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, but three miles by electric tramway. The scenery, from the effect of hill, vale, and wood, is very attractive. The town is the property of the Richardson family, who have 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 yet been erected. 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 granite quarries, now the property of Mr. T. M. H. Flynn, contain some beautiful blue granite, which is hewn out and polished for the 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 male 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 town has a medical dispensary, a news room, and a lending library, a town hall, a young men's institute, and a Y.M.C.A. hall and gymnasium. 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.

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.
