Is a thriving village on the coast road between Larne and the Giant's Causeway, and is forty miles north of Belfast.  It is pleasantly situated on the shore of a picturesque bay, having a good sandy beach, which is a great attraction, and much frequented by visitors in summer. Garron Tower, built by the late Marchioness of Londonderry, is a fine castellated residence, situated on a bold promontory four miles north, commanding one of the finest sea views on the coast. The harbour, which is safe and  commodious, is much frequented by coasting steamers and vessels for the conveyance of limestone, lime, grain, kelp, and iron ore.

Carrickfergus, an ancient market town, and maritime county of a town and parliamentary borough, situate on the north shore of Carrickfergus Bay, or Belfast Lough,  and enclosed on all other sides of Antrim County, is  eight miles from Belfast.  Carrickfergus was formerly a place of great strength, and is rendered memorable by the landing of King William in 1690, previous to the Battle of the Boyne. The liberties of the town and county of the town of Carrickfergus extend four miles,  and is distant from,  but locally in,  the County of Antrim.  Salt was discovered at Duncrue, Carrickfergus, on the property of the Marquis of Downshire,  in 1851.  A company has since been formed to work the salt mine, and large quantities of rock are annually exported to England and elsewhere. The imports consist of coal, timber, slates, and the exports of grain, rock salt, and limestone.  The parish church of St. Nicholas possesses a few monumental memorials, the most remarkable and worthy of notice being one of the Chichester family. Its public buildings are the Town Hall, Market Place, Parish Church, three Presbyterian,  an Independent,  and one Methodist Church,  Roman Catholic Chapel, Court House, and Jail - now used as a barrack by the Antrim Artillery Militia. The Corporation, which was styled "The Mayor, Sheriffs, Burgesses, and Commonalty of the Town of Carrickfergus," under the provisions of the Municipal Reform Act, was dissolved, and a Board of Municipal Commissioners constituted, in whom is vested the corporate property.  The borough returns one member to Parliament,  constituency under 13 and 14 Vic., c. 69.  The town has much improved of late, and the several factories in the neighbourhood contribute greatly to its general prosperity. The oysters taken off the coast are prized for their size and flavour. The Northern Bank has a branch in the town. Carrickfergus is the head quarters of a coastguard division, as also of a constabulary district, comprising the stations of Carrickfergus, Ballyclare, Whiteabbey, Ligoniel, Greencastle, King's Moss, and Whitehouse. A branch of the Belfast and Northern Counties Railway terminates at the town, and a railway has been opened between it and Larne. In 1851 the population of the county of the town was 8,520 ; in 1861, 9,417 ; and in 1871, 9,397. Constituency, 1876 : Rated occupiers 625, freeholders 34, freemen 675 - total 1,334

Castledawson Town, in County Londonderry, about twenty four miles from Belfast, is delightfully situated on the Moyola River, on the road from Magherafelt to Ballymena, and rather more than two miles N.W. of the north-western extremity of Lough Neagh. The river is crossed by a stone bridge of one arch, supposed to be the largest span in Ireland, erected by the Dawson family, and hence its former name of Dawson's Bridge. A second bridge has since been erected. Its present appellation is derived from its proprietor, Joshua Dawson, Esq., who, in 1710, was Chief Secretary for Ireland, and erected, in 1713, a castle, of which only the ruins remain. Castledawson, the seat of the family and residence of Colonel R. Peel Dawson, D.L., J.P., is nearly adjoining the town, situated in a beautiful demesne, through which passes an ancient avenue, three miles in length, opening to a magnificent view of Lough Neagh, to which it extends. The manufacture of cotton prevails in the town and neighbouring district, and the making of coarse earthenware and bricks is carried on most extensively. The stained glass windows on the Church are much admired, and the recent addition and renovation which it has undergone makes it a perfect model. There are also places of worship for Presbyterians and Wesleyan Methodists. A School House has recently been erected at the entrance to Moyola Park by the Hon. Mrs. Dawson, at a cost of upwards of 200, which makes four Schools in all under the National Board. Population in 1876, 726.

Is a thriving market town, in the County Down, sixty three miles N. by E. from Dublin, nine S.W. from Downpatrick, ten from Ballynahinch, and four miles from the fashionable watering place of Newcastle. At the foot of Slieve-na-lat (or the Rod Mountain), and on the shores of a beautiful lake, abounding with trout, stands the new and magnificent mansion of the Earl Annesley, who enjoys the title of Baron of Castlewellan in the peerage of Ireland. Within two miles of the town is Tollymore Park, the elegant seat of the Earl of Roden. There is a branch of the Northern Banking Company; also one Post Office Savings Bank. The linen trade is carried on largely. The spinning, weaving, and bleaching concerns of the Messrs. Murland are on an extensive scale, propelled by steam and water power, and lighted by gas made on the premises. These enterprising and public spirited gentlemen give large employment in the neighbourhood, and greatly benefit the locality. The Church was erected and endowed by Earl Annesley, at a cost of 6,000 or 7,000. It is built in the early English style, of blue and white granite. There are also Presbyterian and Methodist Churches, and a Roman Catholic Chapel. The Court House stands in the centre of the town, in which Petty Sessions are held once every month. The market is on Monday, and the fairs monthly. Population in 1871, 763.

Is a maritime town and a Parliamentary borough in the N.E. Liberties of Coleraine, 145 miles N. from Dublin, comprising a municipal area of 207 acres, area of the Parliamentary borough 963 acres, in the County of Londonderry, 44 miles N. of Belfast.  It is a manufacturing and commercial town,  and is situated on the River Bann.  The town has long been remarkable for the fineness of its linen cloth,  the excellence of its salmon fishery, and the beauty of its rural scenery. The population in 1871 was 6,522, inhabiting 1,354 houses. The town is built on each side of the Bann,  four miles from the sea,  over which is a splendid stone bridge of three arches,  ninety six yards in length by thirty two in breadth, which cost 14,500 ; erected in 1844. The portion on the west side of the Bann is called Waterside and Killowen. The public buildings are two Parish Churches, three Presbyterian, one Independent, one Methodist, one Baptist Meeting House, and two Roman Catholic Chapels ; the Town Hall, Court House, new Market Place, and an Endowed School.  A new Town Hall has been erected in the centre of the Diamond,  at a cost of 5,000.   A National Model School and Academical Institution have lately been erected in Killowen, adjoining the town. Coleraine Parish Church - built 1613 - is one of the oldest in the North of Ireland. The linen trade has been long and extensively carried on here, particularly in the fine description called "Coleraines," the annual sales of which have been known to amount to about 600,000 ; but latterly this branch of manufacture has fallen off. Coleraine is rapidly improving in spinning and weaving factories, and also in pork curing establishments. Here also soap, candles, and leather are manufactured. The salmon and eel fisheries on the rivers Bann and Foyle are farmed at 4,650 annually by the Irish Society to Messrs. Moore, Alexander & Co. A brisk export trade, chiefly to Glasgow, by steam, is carried on through Portrush, the shipping port at five miles to the eastward of the mouth of the Bann ; vessels of 200 tons can discharge at the quay of Coleraine, and extensive improvements are now in course of completion to increase the depth of water at the mouth of the river. In 1873 the number of vessels entered inwards was 422 ; tonnage, 46,589 tons ; cleared outwards, 221 ; tonnage, 31,163. The property of the extinguished Corporation is now vested in the Commissioners, elected under the Towns Improvement (Ireland) Act, 1854 ; also, the dues of the river Bann, under the Bann Navigation Act, 1863. Revenue in 1872, 2,583 ; expenditure, 2,282. Harbour revenue, 5,137 ; expenditure, 6,822. The Provincial, Belfast and Northern Banks have branches here.  Gas Works have been erected.  The Workhouse was opened on the 11th April, 1842. The Borough returns one member to Parliament ; constituency in 1873, about 389, the Reform Bill having added nearly one third. The ancient Corfew Bell is still rung at the Town Hall daily at 9 p.m., ending with tolling the day of the month. There is a steamer for towing vessels from the bar up to Coleraine quay. Quarter Sessions are held here, and Petty Sessions every second Friday.  Fairs are held on the 12th May and 12th November,  for the sale of black cattle,  and for hiring farm servants. Horse fair second Tuesday in February, August and November. Markets on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays for grain ; and Saturdays for general market.

Cookstown, is a flourishing and respectable market town in County Tyrone, thirty five miles W. from Belfast, with direct communication by rail with Belfast, very pleasantly situated on the Kildress rivulet,  and on the great north road from Armagh. The mansion or castle of Killymoon is a superb edifice, in the Saxon style, built from a design by Nash at a reputed cost of 80,000 ; the executors of the late Henry Moutray, Esq., proprietors. The staple of Cookstown is its linen trade, in which many respectable merchants are embarked. There are several flax, corn,  and meal mills in the neighbourhood.  At Millburn Works, near the town, John Gunning & Son, have a power loom weaving factory for the manufacture of plain linens. diapers and damask, which contains over 300 looms, and when in full operation will give employment to over 500 hands ; they have also added a large beetling and finishing concern, which is driven by steam power. The Messrs. Adair of Greenvale have also a weaving, spinning, finishing and dyeing concern. Petty Sessions are held each alternate Friday by the local magistrates.  The Town Commissioners meet the first Monday in each month, in the Town Hall, James Street. The site of the mansion on Loymount, the property of J. B. Gunning Moore, Esq., is the finest about the town, having a view of a large part of County of Antrim, as well as of Lough Neagh.  The places of worship comprise, the Parish Church of Derryloran, the three Presbyterian Churches, two Methodist Meeting Houses, and a Roman Catholic Chapel. There are several educational and other charitable institutions - the former comprise National and Ragged Schools supported by public subscription. The market days are Tuesday and Saturday, the latter for farming produce which is brought in abundance, and is one of the largest markets in the North of Ireland - the former for grain.

A market town in County Cavan, sixty six miles N.N.W. from Dublin, fifteen South from Monaghan, pleasantly situated on the Cootehill river, and on the road from Dublin to Clones. The town consists of four spacious streets, and the country around is embellished with some handsome mansions. The linen business prevails in the district, but not so extensively as formerly, and in the town are established branches of two banks,  a savings bank,  and gas house, by which the town has been recently lighted.  The principal hotel here is the Bellamount Arms. General Sessions of the Peace are held four times in the year,  and Petty Sessions every second Saturday ; they are held in a neat Court House, at the back of which is a secure Bridewell.  There are eight places of worship - the Parish Church, two Presbyterian Churches, two Methodist Churches, a Meeting House for the Society of Friends,  a Moravian Chapel,  and a Roman Catholic Chapel.   The Church, situated in the lower extremity of the town, fronting the Main Street, is a large and handsome structure, in the Elizabethan or Tudor style of architecture, with a tower surmounted by a spire. The charities comprise a handsome School House, built by the Rev. J. R. Darley, for education, and supported out of his own private purse ; a Dispensary,  a Union Workhouse,  and a School under the National Board of Education. The markets are held on Friday and Saturday - the former for general produce and the latter for grain. Fairs, third Friday in every month. Population, in 1861, 1,994 ; in 1871, 1,851.

Is a small post town, parish of Camlin, in the County Antrim, fourteen and one third English miles W. by N. from Belfast, situated on the road between Antrim and Lurgan, and two miles and a half E. of the head of a bay of Lough Neagh. On the Camlin, which skirts the town, and from which river its name is a corruption, are extensive corn and flour mills. Wood turning has been carried on to a very considerable extent during the last few years, and is likely to be extended still further ; at Hiram Farr's mill, near Crumlin, and at Thomas Rea's mill, both on the Crumlin river, enormous quantities of chair legs, table legs, brush heads and handles of all sizes, axe handles, spade and shovel shafts, peg tops, etc., are turned out weekly. From the situation of the town, near Lough Neagh, it derives facility of communication by water with Belfast, Newry, Antrim, Magherafelt, and other towns. Petty Sessions are held on the fourth Monday of every month. The Parish Church was destroyed by the army of James II, in 1689. For the convenience of members, services in connection with the Irish Church are held every Sunday evening at 4.30, in the Court House, Crumlin, and which are well attended. The Presbyterians and Unitarians have each a place of worship ; and there are two Free Schools and a Dispensary. One of the schools was built and endowed by the late Major General the Hon. Sir H. R. Pakenham, of Langford Lodge ; the other is under the National Board of Education. On the east side of the town is a station of the Dublin and Antrim Junction Railway, which connects the Great Northern Railway with the Northern Counties, thereby affording daily communications with Derry on the north and Dublin on the south. Fairs - The first Monday, monthly. There is also a market every Monday, for the sale of wheat, oats, potatoes, pork, butter, eggs and fowl. Population in 1871, 560.
