A seaport and market town
in County Antrim, forty-two miles N.N.W. from Belfast. The name of
this place, Ballycashlin, signifying in the Irish language "Castletown",
is derived from a castle built here in 1609, by Randolph, Earl of Antrim, the
remains of which, in the year of 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. An
inland revenue office and stations of the constabulary and coast-guard are
established here. The Northern Banking Company have a branch of their
bank here. The weekly
general market is held on Saturday; beans on Tuesday; and for oats, &c.,
on Thursday; there is also a pork and butter market held every Wednesday
fortnight, and a large general market held every third Tuesday. Fairs

Ballymena is a stirring, business, and
thronged market inland town, in the County of Antrim - twenty-one 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 made 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 is now allowed to be the best 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 Townhall a Court house and commodious
hotel. There are branches of the Belfast Banking Company, of the Northern
Banking Company, of the Ulster Banking Company; and the Provincial Bank
of Ireland. There is also a news room, a Protestant Society and a Young Men's Christian Association; a
local newspaper, published every Saturday, called the Ballymena
Observer, was established in 1855. The parish church, beautifully situated
within the demesne of Sir Robert Adair, 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. It is called the Church of St. Patrick, and is
universally regarded as a model of architectural taste. In connexion
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 for Methodists, and a
Baptist Meetinghouse. A local Linen Company was established in 1864, and an
extensive Yarn spinning and Power loom Weaving Factory is now in course of
erection in Bridge Street. The capital invested in this concern is
£50,000. There are three weekly markets -
namely, on Tuesday, for pork and butter; on Wednesday, for grain; but the
principal one is on Saturday, and is a large linen market. Fairs, 26th
July and 21st October. Population in 1861, 6.774.

Ballyshannon 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 ordinary tides, and forms a
cataract beautiful and interesting. This is deemed one of the finest,
if not the finest salmon leap in all Ireland. Nearly five hundred
yards above the fall a handsome stone bridge, of fourteen arches, connects
the two sections of the town. The fishing commences about the middle
of April and continues till the latter end of August. The Sessions
and Market House constitute one building. There are also a Custom House, a Union Workhouse, a
Dispensary, Public Schools and a
Barrack - the last-named is generally occupied by infantry. The Parish Church, a
very neat structure, surmounts the summit of a hill
on the West side of the town. Presbyterians 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 two Roman
The market, a good one for grain, beside the usual commodities, is held on
Saturday. The fairs are held on the second day of every month (except
February and August), and on 18th September. Population in 1861, 3,197.

A flourishing market town,
in the County of Down, 20 miles S.S.W. from Belfast, lying on the old coach
road from Belfast to Dublin, and on the left bank 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 and butter, and a market for the sale of
grain, hay, straw &c., every Tuesday and Friday. The market house, erected at
the cost of the Marquis of Downshire, is a handsome building. The
spacious apartments over it are occupied as news and reading rooms, and
afford also accommodation to the magistrates, who assemble here in Petty
Sessions every alternate Thursday. 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 is a Parish Church - a chaste and elegant structure
- two Presbyterian and two Unitarian churches, Baptist
and Methodist chapels, and a Roman Catholic chapel. The town is
lighted with gas. The Quarter Sessions are held every April and
October. The market
days are Monday, Tuesday and Friday - the first named being the most
important. Fairs - January 12th (a large one for horses), June 9th and
August 26th. There is also a fair held on the first
Monday of every month, except January, June and August. The population
in 1861, 4,033.

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 built in Ireland was built in Bangor. The town has greatly improved within the last few years;
the harbour is good and commodious - there is a good pier on which a sum of
£5000 has been lately expended by the proprietor, R. E. Ward, Esq., adding
very considerably to the accommodation of the Port. There is also a steamboat
wharf, and fine beach, well adapted for bathing. Near the beach are
many neat furnished houses and villas, for the accommodation of
parties visiting this favourite bathing shore. A steamer plys
between Belfast and Bangor thrice daily during the Summer season. The
principal hotel, "The Royal", is in a most
agreeable position, facing the sea, commanding beautiful views of the Lough
and of the County Antrim, on the other side. These conveniences and
attractions, together with hot and cold baths, render this one of the most
agreeable localities for the Summer season. The vicinity is enriched
with several elegant seats. R. E. Ward, Esq., D.L., J.P., part proprietor of
the town, has a splendid new castle, in the Elizabethan style of
The castle is surrounded by an extensive demesne, tastefully planted, and is
contiguous to the town, and the seat of Lord Dufferin is within two miles of
A Court of Petty Sessions is held by the magistrates of the County, on the
