A market town and seaport in the County Antrim, about seventeen miles from Belfast, by the coach road, and twenty four and a half miles by railway, nine miles North from Carrickfergus, lying on the road from Glenarm to Belfast at the head of Lough Larne, on the coast of the North Channel, in the Irish Sea. The town was originally called Inver. On a peninsula called the Curran, stand the ruins of Oldfleet Castle, where Edward Bruce landed in 1315, with the design of making himself King of Ireland, causing much bloodshed, and producing many dreadful calamities to the English settlers in this part of the kingdom. The trade of the port of Larne is gradually improving. The exports are lime, limestone, whiting, beans, flour, oats, barley, pork and butter. The shipping belonging to the port number upwards of 100 vessels. Two steamers, the Princess Louise and Princess Beatrice, cross daily in about two hours and forty minutes, conveying passengers and cattle, between Larne and Stranraer. One of the steamers belonging to the State Line calls at Larne fortnightly, and embarks passengers for America. There are good quays on both sides of the Lough, about a mile from the town. There is a railway terminating here, in connection with the Northern Counties line, and a large quantity of the iron ore lately discovered in the neighbourhood is shipped from the port. Other Railways are completed to Ballyclare and Ballymena. The linen and bleaching business is carried on. There is a large and commodious market place, occupying an acre of ground, and a magnificent Town Hall, recently erected, the munificent gift of the late Charles McGarel, Esq., to the people of Larne. The butter, pork, grain, and potato weekly market is held on Wednesday. Iron mines are extensively worked, several of which have been recently opened in the neighbourhood. In the Summer season many visitors are attracted to Larne as a salubrious retreat and well adapted bathing place. Petty Sessions are held fortnightly. There is one newspaper (the "Larne Reporter", established 1865), published here. The church was repaired and much altered in 1819, previous to which it had some specimens of ancient architecture. There are also three Presbyterian churches, one neat Wesleyan Methodist chapel, and a Roman Catholic Chapel, rebuilt in 1858. Two very handsome mission houses have been built and endowed by the late Mr. John Getty of Belfast. The monthly market is held for the sale of black cattle, horses, sheep, pigs, etc., on the second Thursday of each month. Fairs, July 31st and December 1st. Population in 1871, 3,288.

It possesses railway communication, and has a station on the line of the Banbridge and Scarva Junction Railway. Tullylish Church, built in 1861, and consecrated in 1862, accommodates 800 people with seats, and is a neat, comfortable building. Tullylish Presbyterian Meeting House, although having sittings for 500 people, preparations are being made to build a much larger and spacious house of worship, which is much required in this locality. Tullylish Roman Catholic Chapel accommodates 500 worshippers.

Limavady (at the request of the inhabitants the name was changed in October, 1875, from Newtownlimavady), is a place of great antiquity. It was the residence of the celebrated O'Cahan, or the modern O'Kane, who was chief of one of those powerful "septs" of Ulster that were so constant and determined in their opposition, at all times, to the English, from the year in which Sir John de Courcy received this Northern province from the first of the Plantagenets, till the day they were finally subdued under the first of the Stuarts. Through the middle of Limavady, beautiful for situation, flows the Ruagh (Anglice, Roe), or Red River, so called from its muddy waters. The vale of the Roe has been designated by an able writer "The Garden of the North." The chief places of antiquarian interest are the "Limavady," alluding to the "Dog's Leap" ; "O'Kane's Rock," in Deerpark ; the foundations of the old castle, close by ' "McQuillan's Grave," near the "Curly Burn" ; and the ruins of Drumachose ancient church, in Drenagh, with its burial place bearing evidences of Cromwell's sojourn in this island. With the different revolutions of this country this town is honourably associated. In 1641, during the O'Neill persecution, it suffered greatly ; in it a large body of horse, A.D. 1688, was raised for the defence of Derry ; through it King James, with Marshal de Rosen and the Duke of Berwick, passed to besiege that city ; and at Limavady, during the rebellion of 1798, a small band of yeomen opposed the march towards the Maiden City, from Belfast, of 5,000 United Irishmen, and thereby gave the death blow in the North to that fraternity. Limavady has good facilities for trade. Daily communications with Derry and Belfast, by means of rail and telegraph is available. The town can boast of a Public Hall, erected at a cost of 2,000 ; Mr. Samuel Mercer being the builder, a large amount of the outlay being defrayed by public subscription. It contains an assembly room, an ante-room, a news room, a saving's bank and caretaker's rooms. The lands in the neighbourhood are of the most fertile description, and the trade of the town is chiefly derived from agriculture. The town has extensive market places, and is gradually improving. The Belfast and Northern Counties Railway Company have erected a new and commodious Station House. There are three public weighbridges in town, one each at Messrs. Macrory & Sons', Mrs. Hunter's and Alexander Boyle's. Messrs. R. Macrory & Son have large Steam Flour and Oatmeal Mills, adjoining the Railway Station, and a special line of rails from the Station runs into the premises, altogether forming one of the most complete milling establishments in the North of Ireland. There are twelve places of worship in the parish. A spinning and weaving factory has also been built at Ballyclose, by the Limavady Spinning and Weaving Company. A Spinning Factory has also been built at Carrick (two miles distant), by Andrew Given, Esq. Various arrangements have been recently made for the better conducting of sales, and it is hoped that these changes will improve the already good trade of the locality. Of our several benevolent and beneficial associations, the most interesting are the Young Men's Societies, of these, there are two - the Mutual Improvement, and the Christian Association; with these may be connected the Bible and Colportage Society, together with the Provident Society, managed by a committee of the ladies of the town. Another institution worthy of mention is the Kennaught Farming Society. It is for the encouragement of agriculture, and the rearing of a superior class of cattle. The population of the town in 1871, was, 2,762.

Is a market town and Parliamentary borough, partly in the County Antrim, about seven miles S.W. by S. from Belfast. The spinning of flax, and the manufacture of linen and linen thread and damask, together with bleaching, is carried on extensively in the town and its neighbourhood, particularly at Lambeg. Near the middle of the main street is rather a spacious triangular area, in the centre of which stands the Market House. The Castle Gardens are kept in fine order, at the expense of Sir Richard Wallace, Bart., M.P., as a public promenade for the inhabitants. Altogether, Lisburn may be pronounced one of the handsomest and cleanest towns in Ireland. According to its present municipal boundary, it contains 1,364 acres ; population in 1841, 6,284, inhabiting 921 houses ; population in 1851, 6,509, inhabiting 987 houses ; population in 1861, 7,484, inhabiting 1,220 houses. The vast increased improvements which have taken place in Lisburn, since Sir Richard Wallace has come into possession of the Hertford estate, are unprecedented in the history of any other town in Ireland, chiefly caused by the leases in perpetuity, at moderate rents, that have been granted to residents and non-residents, who have erected several handsome villas (which are taken as soon as finished), and as many as 200 workers' houses of a superior class, which were much required, as previously the mill workers were huddled up in filthy and miserable hovels, free of all decency and respect to morality. The population is now (1876) computed at 10,000, all of whom are fully employed, and no beggars, as in former times was the case. The town is situated on the Lagan. The borough returns one member to the Imperial Parliament - constituency in 1869, 326. The present representative is Sir Richard Wallace, Bart. Petty Sessions are held in a commodious Court House fortnightly. The parish church is a spacious and handsome building, with a tower, to which an octagonal spire was added in 1808, at the expense of the Marquis of Hertford, and a fine organ was presented to it by the same nobleman. It is the cathedral church of the united Diocese of Down and Connor and Dromore, and contains a few interesting monuments, amongst which is one to the memory of the celebrated Dr. Jeremy Taylor, who died here in August 1667.

A Maritime City and Parliamentary borough in County Londonderry, sixty-nine miles N.W. by W., from Belfast, comprising an area of about 600 acres within its municipal boundary.  The city is situated on a hill 119 feet above high water, projecting into the western side of the River Foyle, and is surrounded by an ancient rampart, a mile in circumference, with seven gates. As a business and a manufacturing city, it is of much importance, and the fisheries of the Foyle give employment to a great number of people. The original name, Doire, or place of Oaks, was first Anglicised Derry, and the prefix of London was added by charter of James I., 1613, on the incorporation of the Irish Society, who colonised the district. In 1689 it successfully sustained a desperate siege, protracted for 105 days, against the army of James II. The guns used on this memorable occasion are preserved, and the principal one "Roaring Meg" 11 feet long, 4 feet 6 inches in circumference, and others, are still to be seen on the walls. These walls remain almost as perfect as when built, more than two centuries ago. The public buildings and the ecclesiastical edifices, the Walker Monument, and its situation, being " a city on a hill" gives Londonderry, a most effectively picturesque appearance. The river is crossed by a fine iron girder bridge, with two galleries or platforms - one for passenger, the other for railway traffic - connecting the city with the suburb of Waterside, on its east shore. It cost, including approaches about 100,000. Though the linen trade has declined since 1822, the city has considerably advanced in other departments of industry, and the valuation of property has largely increased. Ship building, grain and saw steam mills, coach factories, distilleries, breweries, etc., have been extensively worked by enterprising individuals. Shirt manufacturing affords employment to several thousand persons principally females. The new line of quays has been completed at a cost of 60,000. A new graving dock has been completed at a cost of 20,000. The harbour has also been improved, about 30,000 having been expended in deepening "The Flats" dredging, etc. There is a fine cemetery in the neighbourhood of the city, which has been beautifully planted with shrubs, trees and flowers. The principal buildings are the Cathedral, four Churches, one Roman Catholic Cathedral and a Parochial House contiguous, two Chapels, five Presbyterian, an Independent, two Covenanting, and two Methodist Churches ; the Bishop's Palace, the Deanery, Foyle College, Magee College, County and City Court House, Jail, Corporation Hall, Infirmary, Lunatic Asylum, Gwyn's Institution, Union Workhouse, Military Barracks, Young Men's Christian Association Hall, the Banks, Shirt Factories, the Academical Institution, a new Gas Works (erected at a cost of 15,000), the Government Buildings (recently erected at a cost of 10,000, and comprising Custom House, Post Office, Inland Revenue Office, and Income Tax Office), Boating Club House, an Orange Hall at Glendermott (erected as a memorial to Murray, Mitchelburne, and Ash, three of the principal leaders in the ever memorable siege), Temperance Hall, Waterside, etc.; and an Apprentice Boys' Memorial Hall, another extensive Shirt Factory on the Carlisle Road, the Craig Memorial Schools, and a spacious Goods Shed for the Northern Counties Railway are in course of erection. In the Royal Bastion, there is a pillar erected in memory of the Rev. George Walker, Governor of the City during the siege 1688-9, and a statue of Sir Robert Ferguson, who represented the city in Parliament for many years, stands in the Diamond, at the head of Shipquay Street. The city returns one member to Parliament ; constituency 1866, 1,833. Its present member is C. E. Lewis, Esq., of London. The Recorder holds Quarter Sessions. Fairs are held on the first Wednesday in each month, the 17th June, the 4th September and 17th October. Markets are held every weekday for butcher's meat, fish, pork, vegetables, eggs, poultry, fruit, butter, meal and potatoes. The principal market days are Wednesday and Saturday, the flax market is held on each Tuesday during the season. The market accommodation in the city is excellent. The Bank of Ireland, and the Provincial, Belfast, Ulster, and Northern Banks have branches here. The Savings Bank was established in 1813. The port is formed by the River Foyle, which here expands into a spacious and navigable estuary, possessing great natural advantages. It is under the jurisdiction of the Irish Society, who appoint a vice admiral over it, the Lough, and the adjacent coast. It is also in charge of the Port and Harbour Commissioners. There are steamers belonging to the port, which ply to Liverpool, Glasgow, Morecambe, Belfast, etc. The Irish North-Western Railway connects the city with Dublin, and the Northern Counties line runs to Belfast. An amalgamation has taken place between the Northern and Irish North-Western, which will considerably increase the trade of Derry, and afford greater facilities for commercial and passenger traffic. The Londonderry and Lough Swilly Railway runs to Buncrana, a very pleasant watering place. The opening of the Finn Valley line has given access to Stranorlar by rail. The coasting trade is considerable. An extensive emigration takes place, chiefly to the United States and Canada. The Montreal Steamship Company's line of screw steamers, carrying mails, also, the steamers of the Anchor line, call and depart again weekly. Their station is off Moville, in Lough Foyle. Municipal population, in 1871, 25,242, now about 30,000.

Is a small post town in County Down, situated on the road from Newry to Banbridge, within three miles of the latter, and on the lake from which its name is derived, which is said to have obtained its appellation from the speckled fish with which it formerly abounded. The town consists of one principal and two smaller streets. The Parish Church of Aghaderg is rather a handsome structure, having a square tower surmounted by an octagonal spire: it stands in the centre of the town, and opposite to it is a Roman Catholic Chapel. A Presbyterian Church and a Chapel each for Covenanters and Wesleyan Methodists are the other places of worship. There are national and parochial schools for gratuitous instruction. Fairs are held on the third Tuesday in each month.

Is a flourishing manufacturing town in the County Armagh. It is situated twenty miles S.W. from Belfast, on the line of the Great Northern Railway, and about one and a half miles from Lough Neagh. Brownlow House, the home residence of the Right Hon. Lord Lurgan, K.P. (lord of the manor), is a splendid castle, fronted on the east by a large and beautiful lake, and surrounded by a great enclosed plantation which extends along the whole north-eastern side of the town. To this demesne there are several entrances, the principal being an elegant lodge, which stands near to the centre of the town, between High Street and Market Street. Generally speaking, the architectural character of Lurgan is plain, but fashionable. The greater portion of the town has been tastefully rebuilt within recent years, and though the houses are only two storeys high from the level of the street, there are commonly cellars beneath. Lurgan is the first town of the County Armagh in population and commercial resources, and it is a very important legal centre as well. The General Quarter Sessions of the county are held there, and the large Petty Sessions district - which extends from the Moyntagh shores of Lough Neagh to several miles into the County Down - affords ample business for that court, which is held on the first and third Tuesday in each month. The manufacture of cambric handkerchiefs and damask goods is the staple trade of Lurgan, and the country and villages surrounding, and to the success and skill of the inhabitants in the production of these fabrics may be attributed the rapid progress of the town. In 1831, the population of Lurgan was 3,760 ; it is now above 12,000. The annual valuation of rateable property was then 5,578. It is now 17,000. The accumulation of private wealth must have been more than treble that of public, as a large number of manufacturers have, in the same period amassed princely fortunes. Among the principal depots of public industry in Lurgan are the extensive power loom factories of James Malcolm, Esq., J.P., and Messrs. James Macoun & Co.; and the winding factories of Messrs. John Ross & Co., Richardson, Sons & Owden, Limited, James Glass & Co., and James Clendenning ; and the stitching factory of the Lurgan Hemming and Veining Co. The Belfast, Northern and Ulster Banks have each a branch in operation there. The Parish Church, a large edifice in Gothic architecture, occupies a commanding site in the centre of the town. There are also commodious houses of worship for Presbyterians, Wesleyans, and Primitive Methodists, the Society of Friends, and Roman Catholics. There are, besides Lurgan College and the Model School, a good number of National Schools available for instruction, two of these being in immediate connection with St. Peter's Church and St. Joseph's Convent. The municipal affairs of Lurgan are managed by a Board of fifteen Commissioners, incorporated under the Towns Improvement Act of 1854. The Mechanics' Institute is a handsome structure, situated at the corner of Market Street and Union Street. The Library is open in the evenings of Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, from seven till nine o'clock. President - The Right Hon. Lord Lurgan, K.P.; Vice President - Francis Watson, Esq., J.P.; Trustees - Lord Lurgan, John Waite Greer, J.P., John Hancock, J.P., and Francis Watson, J.P., Hon. Secretary - Frederick W. Magahan. There is a building at the back of and adjoining the Institute, known as the New Town Hall, containing lecture hall, with platform at end with footlights, Town Commissioners' office, and a room occupied by the Masonic Body. There is a well supplied market held in Lurgan every Thursday, and fairs monthly and twice a year.
