          Is a thriving little market town in County Derry, thirty six miles N. by W. from Belfast. It consists of one long and spacious street, from which several smaller ones branch off, the principal of which are Main and Hall Streets, and these are improving and extending rapidly. The houses which are chiefly built of stone, and are modern buildings, have a respectable appearance. Linen cloth is the staple trade. Petty Sessions are held on the last Saturday of each month. A Constabulary Station is in the town. The market days are Tuesday and Friday - the former for flax, pork, horses and cattle, butter, eggs, fowl and general merchandise; and the latter for corn and grass seed. The flax market is held on the second and last Tuesday of each month. Horse and cattle fairs are held on the last Tuesday of every month

          Is a flourishing market town in the barony of Loughinsholin and County of Londonderry, 35 miles N.N.W. from Belfast, and 114 miles from Dublin, and 38 miles from Londonderry. The town, which consists of a square, from which the principal streets radiate, was formerly the property of the Salters' Company, but on the company selling out their estate under the Land Purchase Act, the inhabitants, with a few exceptions, bought out their houses. The houses are well built and have a pleasant and improving appearance, and during the last few year some good buildings have been added to the town. A Convent has been opened in the late Manor House, and schools have been built at considerable expense in connection therewith. General Quarter Sessions of the Peace are held quarterly in the new Courthouse, which is a beautiful structure. The Parish Church (St. Swithin's) is also a fine edifice. The ground for erecting the church as well as the other churches - First and Second Presbyterian, and the Roman Catholic Chapel, was given gratuitously by the Salters' Company. A very good Free School called "Rainey's Foundation School," was rebuilt a few years ago by the Salters' Company, and is now under Governors appointed by the Educational Endowments Commission. An especial want is felt for the mills and factories in the town or neighbourhood. Markets are held every Thursday, and fairs every second and last Thursday of each month. Population in 1891, 1,421

          The chief beauty of this place, which comprises about 800 inhabitants, is the Cooneen River, which rises near Fivemiletown, flows through the town, and empties itself into the Lough Erne. The width of the river at the bridge is 140 feet; and in the summer and autumn it is suitable for fishing. In the town there is a Church of Ireland, a Presbyterian Church, a Wesleyan Church, and a Roman Catholic Chapel; also two National Schools. The Great Northern Railway Terminus is the neatest and best accommodated on the line from Enniskillen to Dundalk. There is also the Central Station for the Clogher Valley Tramway Company, in conjunction with the Great Northern Line.

The town, though small, is clean and consists of one long spacious street, containing a handsome Court House. Petty Sessions are held on last Wednesday of each month. The church was erected at the joint expense of Sir John Rawdon and the Earl of Hillsborough. It is a large and handsome Gothic edifice, with a square tower, surmounted by a spire, and from its situation above the town forms a conspicuous and picturesque object in this well planted district. Lord Deramore, of Belvoir Park, Belfast, is now the owner of the Moira Estate. Fairs are held on the first Thursday in February, May, August and November.

          Is an important market town, and the Assize town for its county, forty three miles S.W. by W. from Belfast. The town consists of one principal square, and of several streets diverging from it. The County Courthouse is a handsome building. Her Majesty's Prison is a most substantial building. The County Infirmary occupies an elevated situation. There is a Fever Hospital about a quarter of a mile from the town. At the north entrance are the Cavalry Barracks and Union Workhouse. The principal trade is the exchange of general merchandise for agricultural produce of the surrounding country. The Belfast, Ulster, Provincial and Hibernian Banks, have branches here; there is also a Savings Bank. The Parish Church is a handsome structure in the later English style of architecture, with a square tower surmounted by a spire. The interior contains some handsome monuments and marble tablets. There is a Presbyterian church, and several Methodist churches. The Roman Catholic chapel adjoins the town. There are some good public schools. At the end of North Street is a large Model School; and near to it is the terminus of the Great Northern Railway. There are two newspapers published here; the Northern Standard, and the People's Advocate. A Lunatic Asylum has been erected, capable of holding 576 patients. Petty Sessions Court held on each Tuesday. Quarter Sessions four times and Assizes twice each year. The market days are Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday - the first for the usual articles of consumption, the two latter for corn. Fairs, the first Monday of every month. Population of the town in 1891, 2,938.

          Is in the County Derry, 32 Irish miles W.N.W. from Belfast. The town and a large tract of the adjacent country are the property of the Drapers' Company, London, who have greatly improved it and surrounding district. Petty Sessions are held on the first Tuesday in each month. The whole estate belonging to the Company comprises 56 townlands. The Church of Ireland, Desertlyn, in the town, is a very elegant structure, in the Norman style of architecture, erected in 1832, at an expense of 6,000, wholly defrayed by the Drapers' Company. The Drapers' Company, also built at their expense the Rev. Dr. Barnett's Presbyterian Church, at a cost of 4,000, and subscribed liberally to the building of the Rev. W. Sharp's Presbyterian Church. Since the estate came into their possession, they have expended 50,000 in the improvement of the town of Moneymore alone, exclusive of about 100,000 upon other portions of their property. The weekly grain market is held on Friday, and the fair is held on the 21st of every month.

          Moy is a small market town in County Tyrone, 49 miles S.W. from Belfast, situated on the River Blackwater, on the road from Armagh to Dungannon. It was designed in the year 1764, by the Hon. Earl of Charlemont, the proprietor, after the plan of Marengo in Italy. Two quays on the river were erected by the Charlemont family, with extensive stores; and the Blackwater being navigable from Lough Neagh for lighters of sixty tons burthen, an immediate communication is formed between Belfast and Newry, by the Lagan and Newry Canals, and with Lough Erne by the Ulster Canal. There is a Court House and News Room. Petty Sessions are held every second Wednesday. In the immediate neighbourhood are several extensive linen manufactories. The Church of Ireland is in the early English style, with a handsome square tower. There are places of worship for Presbyterians, Independents, Methodists and Roman Catholics. On an adjacent hill is Roxborough House, the beautiful residence of Lord Charlemont, originally commenced in 1774 by his uncle, the Hon. Francis Caulfield. On the first Friday of every month is held one of the best attended horse fairs in the North of Ireland.
          Charlemont, a market town in County Armagh, divided from Moy by the Blackwater River, over which is a neat stone bridge of five arches, built about 1706, and rebuilt in 1859 by the two counties - Tyrone and Armagh. It is a perfect model in style and architecture, and adds considerably to the towns it unites together, as well as the magnificent entrance of the Earl of Charlemont, which it immediately adjoins. The Castle was built in 1602. The town participates with Moy in the linen manufacture. The Church of Ireland was erected in 1833 on ground given by Lord Charlemont. It is a handsome structure, resembling in front one of the grand altars of York Minster. The celebrated and pious John Wesley frequently preached in Charlemont, and occasionally in the fort.

Post Office, Charlemont Square, Moy - John Morrison, postmaster.  Letters from Dublin, the South of Ireland, England and Scotland, arrive every morning at 1-30 and mid day at 11-45 and are despatched at 2-20 p.m., and 11 p.m. Cross post despatched at 7-50 a.m.

          A charming watering-place and popular holiday resort, skirting the shore of Dundrum Bay, and having in the background Slieve Donard, the loftiest peak of the Mourne Mountains. Its situation is one of unrivalled beauty, justly entitling Newcastle to be called - as it often is - the Scarborough of Ireland. Of late years its attractiveness has been greatly enhanced by the erection of numerous handsome residences replete with every modern convenience - the laying out of an excellent lawn tennis court, and the opening in the sandbanks of a golf course under the auspices of the County Down Golf Club. Incidentally it may be mentioned that these links have been pronounced among the best in the United Kingdom. A club house for use of members and visitors has also been recently erected. Newcastle is about 26 miles distant from Belfast, with which city it is connected by the County Down Railway. The company have erected a spacious pavilion, which is thrown open to excursionists should the weather prove unfavourable. Adjoining the pavilion are the well-known Railway Refreshment and Dining Rooms, under the able management of the proprietor, Mr. Joseph Lawrence. The village boasts of two hotels second to none in Ireland - the Annesley Arms (Miss Trousdale), and the Bellevue (Mr. S. Abernethy, proprietor). Both are luxuriously furnished throughout, and the cuisine in both excellent. In close proximity to these hotels are the baths, where hot, cold, spray, and plunge in sea water may be had at pleasure. In the matter of public worship, four edifices supply the spiritual needs of the people, resident or visitor - viz., St. John's, Church of Ireland; Presbyterian Church, Methodist Church, and Roman Catholic Chapel. In the centre of the village, facing the sea, is a spacious promenade, to which visitors have access at all times. Donard Lodge Demesne, so long the residence of the late Dowager Countess Annesley, is still kindly thrown open to the public, whilst Tollymore Park (the residence of the Earl of Roden), and Castlewellan Demesne (the residence of Earl Annesley) are within easy distance, both being likewise thrown open to the public. It may be added that, owing to the enterprise of the Railway Company, by the making a loop line and running an "express" service of trains, the time in which the journey between Belfast and Newcastle by rail can be made is one hour. The Annesley Memorial Hall, erected by public subscription in memory of the late Dowager Countess Annesley, was completed in 1893, and is now available for public meetings or concerts. Adjoining the large hall are the suite of rooms occupied by the members of the Newcastle News Room Club; a merely nominal subscription entitles visitors and others to the privileges of same. Population in 1893, 900

          Is an extensive market town and Parliamentary borough in Down and Armagh Counties, fifty miles N. by Dublin, and thirty from Belfast, comprising within the Parliamentary boundary, 2,543 acres, of which 629 are in the town, and 1,914 in the rural districts. It is situated near the mouth of the Clanrye River, which discharges itself into Carlingford Bay, five miles from the town. There are eight bridges, four of which are stone, and cross the river separating the Counties of Armagh and Down ; the others are iron and wooden drawbridges across the Canal. Newry is a very ancient town. In 1175, Maurice McLoughran, King of Ireland, founded an abbey here, to which great immunities and endowments were granted, and afterwards confirmed by Hugh de Lacy, Earl of Ulster, in 1237. In 1689 the Duke of Berwick, to secure his retreat to Dundalk from the English forces, under the command of the Duke of Schomberg, set fire to Newry, and left it in a very destitute and ruined condition. The northern entrance of the town is adorned with a chaste and elegant obelisk of chiselled granite, erected in honour of the late highly-respected and generally lamented Trevor Corry, Esq., a favourite magistrate for many years. The Corry Arms, beautifully executed in Portland stone, appear on the north and south recesses, and eulogistic inscriptions on black marble are executed on the west and east sides of the monument. An ornamental miniature park has lately been arranged round this monument. It is neatly planted with all kinds of shrubs. Immediately opposite is a neat, capacious edifice, known as the Orange Hall, erected by the Orangemen of the district, on a site granted by the Marquis of Downshire, in which the meetings of that body are held. There is also a Masonic Hall. The public buildings are - two Protestant Churches (one of which was erected as far back as the reign of Elizabeth), two Presbyterian Churches, one Methodist Church, one Independent Chapel, one Unitarian Church, and two Roman Catholic Chapels, one Dominican Chapel, three Convents, two Court Houses, two Bridewells, Custom House, Union Workhouse, one Diocesan College (Violet Hill), Intermediate School, Ladies' Collegiate School, Scriptural Schools, Freemason Hall, National Model School, six other National Schools, and three Christian Brother Schools, Fever Hospital, Bank of Ireland, Assembly Room, and Military Barracks. At the present time a new Town Hall is nearing conclusion. This building has cost close upon 8,000, and is an imposing and ornate structure, adding materially to the appearance of that portion of the town in which it is situate. Mr. William Batt, M.R.I.A., Belfast, is the architect, and Mr. David Mahood, Newry, the builder. There are several corn, flour, two weaving factories and spinning mills, six tan yards, three coach and car manufactories, iron and brass foundries, and spade and shovel manufactories. The Bessbrook and Newry Electrical Tramway is a notable means of transit which has been recently established. The other manufactories are linen, yarn, cotton, salt, iron, cordage, mineral water works. Extensive water-works have been constructed at Camlough, and the town has an abundant supply of a prime necessary of life. Quarter Sessions are held here for the County Down portion of the town, as also in Ballybot, for a portion of the County Armagh. There is a fair on the first Monday of every month in that portion of the town, in the County Armagh called Ballybot; markets on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. Seven commodious market places have been laid out, and enclosed in a most substantial manner by the Town Commissioners. The borough returns one member to Parliament; constituency 2,400. The Bank of Ireland, the Northern, the Belfast, and the Provincial Banks have branches here. The port admits vessels of 2,000 tons burthen to Warrenpoint, five miles from the town, where the larger vessels remain, but those drawing fifteen feet of water can go up by ship canal to the Albert Basin, Newry. Barges ply by the Newry Canal Navigation to Lough Neagh, thirty two miles distant inland. The Newry Navigation Company have the management of the port and canal, the latter of which extends along the west side of the river, and that company are at present deepening the channel so as to admit of large ships, drawing 24 feet of water, discharging at the Doyle's Hole, beside the Victoria Locks. The Dundalk and Newry Steam Packet Company have done much to develop the trade of the town. A screw steamer sails twice each week from the Albert Basin for Ardrossan, and three splendid steamers ply twice a week between Newry and Liverpool. Newry is favoured by having railway communication with all parts of the country. Steam colliers trade between here, and the coal ports in England and Scotland. The principal exports are linen, cloth, grain, provisions, cattle, eggs, and butter. The paving, lighting and cleansing of the streets are vested in eighteen Town Commissioners, who have also the appointment of sanitary officers. The Town Commissioners own the Gas Works, and under the skilful management of a committee the town is well lighted. The cost of the gas is 4s. 7d per 1,000 cubic feet. In the neighbourhood of the town there are valuable quarries, and beautiful specimens of the highly polished marble and granite taken from the beds were greatly admired at the Philadelphia Exhibition. The excellent granite taken from the Moor Quarries, the property of Messrs. H. Campbell & Son, is highly appreciated. It presents a uniformity of texture and colouring, and it has this peculiarity - its colour, a rich grey, remains unchanged. Even the largest stones show few flaws. The blocks of granite taken from these quarries are of immense size, and of best description. Specimens of this granite were granted a very high award of merit at the Philadelphia Exhibition, 1876. The other principal quarry owners are Messrs. T. H. M. Flynn, Samuel Cooper, R. Emerson, A. Ewen & Sons, John Sturgeon, and John McCullough.

          This populous and prosperous town, the capital of the Ards district, is situated eight Irish miles east of Belfast, and at the Northern extremity of a large estuary, formerly known as Lough Cuan, or Cowan, but now called Strangford Lough. Coal vessels have occasionally come up as far as Anderson's Bank, within about two miles of the town, but the water in the lough being shallow, no advantage has for so far been taken of its proximity to the sea, although the project of cutting a canal has on several occasions been before the public. Ballylisnevan is the ancient name of the town, which covers an extended area, and the streets of which are generally broad and laid off with geographical regularity. In the centre of the town is Conway Square, the largest open space in any Ulster town. It measures 120 yards from north to south, and 90 yards from east to west, and is edificed with commendable regularity. On the north side stands the Market house, which was erected in 1770 by Robert Stewart, first Marquis of Londonderry. It is in the Grecian-Doric style of architecture, surmounted by an elegant and well proportioned cupola, at the base of which is the town clock. Upstairs there are a public lecture room, a ball room, and a news room, and on the ground floor are caretaker's apartments, weighing office, and Y.M.C.A. Rooms. At the foot of High Street, and as near as possible to the centre of the old town, stands "The Old Cross," which is an object of interest to the archaeologist, and which was erected in the year 1636. It is of hewn stone, and octagonal in shape, and besides displaying several heraldic devices, bears an almost obliterated inscription, which sets forth that the armorial bearings of the Montgomerys, which were "by rebels thrown down and defaced" in 1653, were "by the citizens of this loyal borough replaced" in 1666. Not far from this are to be seen the romantic looking and ivy clad ruins of the old Parish Church, erected by Sir Hugh Montgomery. This is considered to be the remains of one of the most complete past reformation churches built in Ulster prior to the present century. It was for years used as a Court house, but at present is the burying place of the Londonderry family. The remains of Frederick William Robert, the fourth Marquis, were interred here in 1872, and a handsome Celtic memorial cross, of Kingstown limestone, placed in the building in 1875 by the Dowager Marchioness, his then wife, Elizabeth, formerly Lady Jocelyn, daughter of the Earl of Roden. She died in the Roman Catholic faith in 1885. Her remains lie alongside those of her husband, and she caused to be erected the memorial cross referred to. About four miles along the Portaferry Road in Mountstewart, the Irish residence of the noble owner of the estate, the present Marquis of Londonderry, who was Viceroy of Ireland from July, 1886, till September, 1889. The walled-in demesne is very extensive, and the facade of the mansion is eminently handsome. A most interesting ecclesiastical ruin is to be seen about a mile from the town, where in the old cemetery of  Magh Bile, or Movilla, stand the remains of an Abbey said to have been founded about the year 550 by St. Finian, who died in 572. Several sculptured monumental tablets, one of the oldest of which shows an Irish inscription, may be seen built in the north wall. A new and handsome cemetery has recently been established adjoining the old ground by the Newtownards Joint Burial Board. About three miles in the direction of Crawfordsburn, at Clandeboye, is situated Ballyleidy House, the Irish residence of the eminent and distinguished diplomat, the Marquis of Dufferin of Ava, K.P. Excellent building stones are obtained in Scrabo and the Glebe Quarries, and on the top of Scrabo Hill is a striking monument, erected to the memory of Charles Stewart, the third Marquis, well known as a distinguished cavalry officer in the Peninsular war. The leading industries of the town and district are weaving and embroidering for Belfast and Glasgow houses. The work comes to agents, and is done by the weavers and sewers in their own houses. There are, however, several public works. The Castle Gardens Mill, owned by Messrs. George Walker & Co., Limited, employs about 600 persons, principally young women, in spinning linen yarns and weaving heavy materials for mail bags, hessians, girthweb, and linen tapes for saddlers, ironmongers, and wholesale warehousemen. There are also two other large establishments in Newtownards, namely - The Ards Weaving Co. and Glen Printing and Finishing Co., whose works are situated on the Crawfordsburn Road, and who employ nearly 1,000 hands engaged at damask power loom weaving, hemstitching and finishing, plain and embroidered handkerchiefs, printing linen and muslin goods, &c. Adjoining these buildings, there is at present being a bleach green, which employs about 200 hands. In another part of the town, Ann Street, has recently been established by Mr. T. R. Lavery, an extensive factory for the manufacturing and embroidery of handkerchiefs. Upwards of 100 hands are employed, principally females. The starch works and corn mill of Messrs. John Taylor & Son, now the property of Mr. James McCullough, employ numerous men and boys. Messrs. William Dobbin & Sons manufacture a large number of quilts annually, and their goods are famed for superior excellence throughout the United Kingdom. Mr. James Apperson is engaged in the manufacture of shirtings, skirtings, and shawls, as also Mr. Wm. Kirk.  Mr. John Stevenson is proprietor of a large hosiery establishment, in connection with which several hundred hands are employed. The nurseries of Messrs. Alexander Dickson & Sons, the eminent florists, are at the extreme west end of the town; and Mr. W. Sibbald Johnston's chemical bleach works are at Kiltonga, a mile along the Belfast Road. A cloth factory has recently been established by Mr. Grant on the site of the Movilla Bleachworks. The Newtownards Chronicle and County Down Observer is published weekly. Civil Bill and Licensing Sessions are held quarterly, Land and Equity Sessions twice a year, Petty Sessions on the second and fourth Thursdays in each month; and the Presentment Sessions for Baronies of Lower Ards and Lower Castlereagh, in May and December. There are excellent markets under the management of the Town Commissioners. A fair is held on the second Saturday of each month, and patent fairs on January 23rd, May 14th, and September 23rd. In 1891 the population was estimated at 8,676, but it has materially increased since the census was taken. In October, 1891, 555 persons were entitled to vote at an election for Town Commissioners. The Belfast and County Down Railway has a station at the north side of the town, and eight trains run to and from Belfast daily. There are special late trains from Belfast on Friday and Saturday evenings.

          Newtownbutler is a small town in South Fermanagh, with a population of about 350. It is a station on the Great Northern Railway, four miles from Clones, and five from Lisnaskea. The town has been much admired for its situation, its splendid house property, its wide and clean streets, and the peaceful character of its inhabitants. About one third of the town property is owned by some four or five residents, the remainder by Lord Lanesborough, whose summer residence, Quivey Lodge, is situate on the banks of Lough Erne, some four miles off South, whilst about the same distance from the town, and within one mile off Quivey, stands the beautiful limestone castle of Colonel Saunderson, M.P., known as Castle Saunderson. The historic battlefield of Killgarret where the Battle of Newtownbutler was fought and won by the Protestants in 1689, is close to the town on its southern side. Four miles to the west stands the charming Crom woods, through which meanders the Erne water. Here the Earl of Erne has his seat, the beautiful new castle standing in sight of the ruins of the old one, which is for ever linked with Newtownbutler in connection with the revolutionary period of 1688-90. During the summer months great numbers of excursionists pass through Newtownbutler on their way to historic Crom. about three miles to the north, on the road to Lisnaskea, stands the ruins of another old castle - Manorwater House - said to have been the scene of a bloody fight for three days, between its owner and Cromwell's troops. Whilst three miles out on the Cavan road, on the top of a high hill overlooking Wattle Bridge (now a stone bridge), will be found one of those antiquarian wonders of the present day - a stone circle composed of stones of enormous size standing on their ends, the whole being termed locally, the Druid's Fort. Newtownbutler has three churches - The Church of Ireland, Galloon; the Roman Catholic, and the Methodist; with two National schools - one Protestant and one Roman Catholic. Annual Fair - 12th May. Market - Tuesday in each week. A Court of Quarter Sessions with Petty Sessions on third Tuesday in each month are held in the town, which also possesses a Town Hall and an Orange Hall.
