Is a pleasant little town in the County Antrim, thirty six miles North from Belfast, on the road coastwise between Larne and Ballycastle. It is delightfully situated in a deep glen opening to the sea, and on the Glenarm River, which here flows into the bay of its name. It is crescented by bold romantic and imposing scenery, and at the distance of ten miles are the lovely villages of Cushendall and Cushendun. Glenarm Castle, now the beautiful seat of the Earl of Antrim, of whom Randal McDonnell, Marquis of Antrim, was attained during the Protectorate.  The mansion is a noble quadrangular pile, embellished with minarets, and surrounded by stately domes. The demesne is richly planted and the grounds laid out with exquisite taste. These attractions cause a considerable influx of visitors to it in the Summer season.  The harbour, which is small, is chiefly frequented by vessels from the opposite coast of Scotland, which bring coal and take back grain, whiting, propwood, lime and limestone. Of the latter, large quantities are exported by the Glenarm Mining and Lime Company to England as well as to Scotland.  iron ore is now being shipped from Glenarm. The places of worship are the Parish Church, Presbyterian and Methodist Meetinghouses, and a Roman Catholic Chapel.  The Charitable institutions comprise a Dispensary, and Schools for the education of the children of both sexes. Fairs are held on 26th January, 26th May, 30th August, and 29th October.

A market town (formerly a Parliamentary borough), in County Down, ten miles from Belfast, on the road from Dublin to Belfast. General Sessions of the Peace are held twice a year, and Petty Sessions first Saturday of every month, in the Court House. The Parish Church is a very elegant building, consisting of a nave and cross aisles. The tower, which is upwards of 100 feet high, and the steeple, 100 more, form together a beautiful and conspicuous object at a considerable distance. There are also two smaller towers at the sides. The interior corresponds with the exterior in neatness, is furnished with a good organ, and every window is adorned with stained glass. There is a very fine peal of eight bells in the large tower. A monument, by Nollekens, to the memory of Archdeacon Leslie, erected by the third Marquis of Downshire, is worthy of notice ; as also a monument, erected by the fourth Marquis of Downshire to the memory of William E. Reilly, Esq., a former agent ; and there is a very chaste and elegant group of statuary, erected by the Marchioness of Downshire, to the memory of her late husband, the fifth Marquis. There are also two other handsome churches in the parish, built by the third Marquis, and one endowed by him ; and there is one Presbyterian Church, and a Roman Catholic Chapel. The charitable Institutions are - a Dispensary, schools for both sexes (conducted on the modern system of education), by the third Marquis, and a Sunday School, patronised by the Downshire family. The Downshire demesne is contiguous to the town - the mansion, garden and lawn being on the west side of it. On a hill at the Dromore side of the town is a splendid monument to the memory of the third Marquis of Downshire, erected by public subscription, and in the centre of the town, opposite the church entrance, is a bronze statue of the fourth Marquis, put up by friends and tenants. Hillsborough Fort, now in ruins, in the demesne, was built in the reign of Charles I., and is constituted a Royal Fort, of which the Marquis of Downshire is hereditary Constable. King William the Third stopped here when passing on to Drogheda, and it was here he signed the Regium Donum grant to Presbyterian ministers. Hillsborough gives the titles of Earl and Viscount to the Marquis of Downshire. The Northern Banking Company have a branch here. Recently there has been established, close to the town, a large linen factory, belonging to the Hillsborough Linen Company Limited. A public news room has been established, and it is now open to the people of the town and vicinity. The market is held on Wednesdays, fairs, third Wednesday in each month. Population in 1877, 885.

Holywood is four and a quarter miles distant from the Exchange, Belfast. It is beautifully situated on the east shore of the Lough, and the public road to it leads through Ballymacarrett and Sydenham, passing over Bunker Hill, for which the renowned "Bunker Hill" of America is named. Direct railway accommodation to this prosperous seaside town is afforded by the Belfast, Holywood, and Bangor Railway - trains running almost every hour from half past six o'clock in the morning until a quarter past eleven o'clock at night. It is thus one of the most accessible suburbs of Belfast, while the excellence of its climate, its rare healthiness, moderate house rents, comparative low taxation, educational and other advantages, have made it a favourite residence of Belfast merchants, professional gentlemen, clerks, and respected artisans. Holywood is remarkable as having been a place of some note so far back as the seventh century. In it was a monastery of the Franciscans, occupied by about four hundred monks, which stood somewhere about the ruins of the old Church, and was a branch of Bangor Abbey. In the graveyard there are stones dating from 1630. The celebrated Rev. Robert Cunningham, one of the first five Presbyterian ministers that came to Ireland was settled in Holywood in 1618. Within the last twenty five years immense sums of money have been expended in rebuilding and greatly enlarging the town. The places of worship of all denominations have been rebuilt, handsome and commodious edifices having been erected. Sullivan's National Schools occupy a very superior and ornamental structure in the principal street, and within the last year there has been built close to it, at the cost of 2,000, what will be, it is considered, one of the best and cheapest endowed Intermediate Schools in Ireland. According to the scheme of Dr. Sullivan's trustees, as amended by the Master of the Rolls, instruction will be given in this important and valuable institution in ancient classics, modern languages, science, English composition, etc., at rates that enable the sons of parents of small incomes to enjoy their benefits. Dr. Sullivan's munificent bequests for these schools amounted to about 14,000, of which 4,000 are to be applied to the ordinary schools. There are several first class ladies' and boys' Boarding and Day Schools. A large number of shops - grocers'. bakers', hardware, butchers', millinery establishments, medical hall, etc. - have been opened of late years that do a flourishing business; grocers' and butchers' vans run from Belfast regularly. Fish caught in the lough is sold every morning. There is a large mussel bank close to the shore. The Pier is now in possession of the Messrs. Priestly, who import coals largely, as do others in that trade ; and it is stated that the owners of the Pier intend to have a small swift steamer plying between Belfast and Holywood. The principal hotel is efficiently conducted by Mr. Lamont ; it is an extensive building, with large stabling and carriage accommodation. A number of cars are always at the train, and boats are for hire in the summer. There is a flourishing Amateur Boating and Swimming Club. The public Baths, hot and cold, are now in connection with the railway, and are largely made use of. The Kinnegar Rifle Ground is within a short walk of the station; here some of the most distinguished marksmen in the United Kingdom have been trained. Holywood is under the provisions of the Towns Improvement Act. The streets have been newly sewered, and the sanitary arrangements in every direction have been actively looked after. The Town Hall is a splendid building where the magistrates and commissioners hold their meetings. A very spacious Assembly Room is used for lectures and concerts. In connection with the building there is a News Room, and also a public Working Men's Library, the Loan Fund having given 400 for accommodation for the library to the enterprising and generous proprietors of the Hall. The public fountain, in Church Street, is the gift of Lord A. Edwin Hill-Trevor, M.P.; lord of the manor. From the Gas Works pipes run to Marino, and as far as Craigavad. Holywood has been always recommended to invalids on account of its superior climate, which is, winter and summer, two degrees warmer than Belfast. The late eminent Dr. Forsythe was accustomed to make his patients take up their residence there, as he did himself in old age, after amassing a large fortune. Distinguished Dublin physicians speak in the highest terms of the climate. The walks along the shore and on the hills are very numerous and attractive. From the summit of the hills there are, at different standpoints, commanding views of County Down, with its farms, lakes, rivers, and mountains stretching away to Slieve Donard ; then away to the right, from above Stormount Castle, appears the whole valley of the Lagan, with the spires of Lisburn, Hillsborough and Ballinderry, in the distance ; while from the hills above Craigavad there is afforded a wide sweep of the Scottish mountains, with Ailsa Craig rising up like a vast sugar loaf in the middle of the deep. From the hill above Craigauntlet there is a grand view of Strangford Lough. A little nearer Holywood is Pottinger's Dog Kennel, where in olden times the father of the celebrated brothers Pottinger, of Chinese fame, kept his hounds, while he lived at Craigavad house. There are curious old caves in Cultra Glen ; and about a mile above the Episcopal Church is Schomberg's Hill, where William's army lay, proceeding from Groomsport to the Boyne. On the same road, ten minutes' walk from the Church, there has lately been discovered by Dr. Hodges a valuable mineral spring. The first house in High Holywood - "Glenside" - was built by the late Rev. Henry Henderson, in 1849, but now the whole of that greatly admired district is covered with detached mansions, terraces and plantings. Waterworks are about to be constructed in the glen above the town. The proprietor of Holywood is Captain John Harrison, J.P. The Population in 1841 was 1,500 ; in 1861, 2,422 ; in 1871, 3,462.

Is a small thriving town in the Barony of Mourne, about fourteen and a half miles from Newry, and nearly half a mile from the open coast. The town is composed of five streets, Greencastle Street, Quay Street, Bridge Street, and Newcastle Road. A new pier, capable of admitting vessels of 14 feet draught, is erected near the River Foot, which will be of great advantage as a fishing station. There is now a ship building yard at the quay, owned by Mr. Painter. There is a neat Church, a Presbyterian Church, and a Moravian Meeting House. There is a Market House, and the Kilmorey Arms Hotel. On the Eastern side of the town, beyond the bridge leading to Newcastle, are the ruins of the old church and its churchyard. There is a market every Wednesday, a flax market every Tuesday, and a fair the last Wednesday of each month. Petty Sessions Court is held last Tuesday in each month. There are free schools, supported solely by the trustees of the Earl of Kilmorey and the Rector of the parish. The Belfast Banking Company have opened a branch, and erected a handsome and commodious building for their office

A  market and seaport town, formerly a Parliamentary borough, in the County Down, about sixteen miles S.E. from Belfast, situated at the head of a creek on the West shore of Strangford Lough, on the road from Downpatrick to Belfast. There are two extensive linen yarn spinning mills, containing 40,000 spindles and employing 1,500 hands. The Hamiltons, created Lords Clandeboye, and subsequently Earls of Clanbrassil, formerly resided in an ancient castle at one extremity of the town. It is now the residence of the Hamilton family, who, with Lord Dufferin, own the town and estate contiguous. The magistrates assemble in Petty Sessions monthly. The church is a handsome cruciform structure, with a tower, surmounted by a spire of good proportions. It was originally erected in 1640, in 1812 was re-built, and has lately been much extended. There are two Presbyterian Churches, a Methodist Chapel, a Roman Catholic Chapel, and two National Schools. Sir Hans Sloan, the celebrated naturalist and physician, was born here on the 16th April, 1600, and the house in which he was born, in Back Street, is still habitable. The market is held on Friday ; fairs, April 10th and October 11th. A spacious plot of ground has been selected and purchased for a market place; and suitable buildings sheds, etc., are now being erected by public subscription. Shrigley Mills and the town contained, 1869, 2,730 inhabitants, and there is no public house in it. Shrigley Mill, the site of one of the flax spinning mills adjoining Killyleagh, has a population of 1,021 ; former proprietor, John Martin, Esq., J.P., now owned by a Limited Liability Company, under the title of John Martin Limited. There is attached to the mill an infant school, male school, and a female school, under the National Board. Patron, Lachlan Maclaine, Esq. The income from house property alone at Shrigley Mill, is upwards of a thousand pounds annually. This village was erected by the late J. Martin, Esq., and the houses are all occupied by the workers of John Martin Limited. The mill, schools, and dwellings would well repay the inspection of visitors ; they are an ornament and credit to any neighbourhood.
