          Is a prosperous market town in the County Armagh, twenty five miles from Belfast, situated on the banks of the Bann. It is an important railway junction. The lines of the Great Northern Railway branch off from it to Dublin, Derry and Armagh, and it is in direct railway communication with Belfast. The Newry Canal, which joins the Bann about a mile from the town, opens a water communication from Carlingford Lough, and the river itself, being navigable all the way to Lough Neagh, affords a ready means for lighters and barges from Belfast and the towns adjoining the Lough. The ancient name of the town was Port-ne-doon, or the Port of the fortified eminence. It has increased rapidly within the last half century, the population in 1816 being only 600, while in the census of 1881 it was upwards of 8,000. The town stands on a hill, and is well cleansed and lighter, the footpaths are flagged, the houses are of modern construction, and the chief streets are of imposing appearance. Two markets are held in the week, one on Wednesday for the sale of hay, straw, and other farm produce. In the season a very large quantity of grass seed is brought to this market, and the buyers are numerous, and the highest market price is realized. The market on Saturday is for the sale of all kinds of farm produce; the trade in pork is very large, and a fair is held on the third Saturday in every month. The manufacture of linen and cambric is extensively carried on. There are four large weaving factories and a spinning mill, which give employment to many people, and two large flour mills. The chief public buildings are the Bank of Ireland, a large and handsome structure built of Newry granite, three storeys high; the Belfast Bank, and the Ulster Bank; Carleton Street School, erected in 1870, where Sabbath Schools in connection with St. Mark's Church are held; the Orange Hall opened in 1875, the Young Men's Institute, and the Victoria Hall. The old Town Hall having become totally inadequate for the requirements of a rapidly increasing population, was recently sold for £1,540. The Town Commissioners have selected ground in Edward Street for the erection of a new hall, the cost of which is not to exceed £2,500. The Local Government Board have sanctioned a loan of £1,900 from the Board of Public Works towards the erection of the new buildings, and the work will shortly be proceeded with. The Parish Church of Drumcree is situated about one mile from the town. In the town is St. Mark's Church, and about half a mile distant is Seagoe Church. The Wesleyan Methodist premises in Thomas Street are handsome buildings, containing a chapel, several school rooms and class rooms. The Presbyterian Churches, three in number, are commodious and well appointed. The Roman Catholic Chapel in William Street is a spacious edifice, and there is a second chapel in the Edenderry end of the town. A lease of land to the extent of twenty three acres has been obtained from his Grace the Duke of Manchester for a public park. It has been tastefully laid out in walks and planted with evergreens and trees of various kinds, while a river flowing through the centre and a handsome pond contribute much to its appearance. In 1872 a public library and a reading room were established, which are open daily. There are over 2,000 volumes in the library, and the news room is well supplied with papers. Petty Sessions are held on the second and fourth Mondays in each month, John Walker, Clerk of Petty Sessions.

          Is a thriving little seaport and market town in County Down, twenty three miles S.E. by S. from Belfast, situated on the Eastern shore of the strait to the sea that forms the entrance to Strangford Lough. From the strength of the current the name "Strong-ford," and hence, by corruption, Strangford is derived. At Portaferry there is a good quay, where vessels of light burden can discharge their cargoes. A considerable trade is done in coal, timber, corn and agricultural produce. The herring fishery is carried on from the month of June to September inclusive. The Market House is a commodious building, in which the magistrates hold Petty Sessions on the last Tuesday in each month.

It is a seat of the hand loom linen works, and a considerable trade is carried on in the manufacture of bricks from the peculiar white clay found on the banks of the river. The surrounding district produces cereal crops in great abundance, and is a remarkably suitable for flax. There are three Presbyterian Churches, one Church of Ireland, and one Roman Catholic Chapel in the town. The First Presbyterian Church was rebuilt in 1871, by the Rev. John Houston, minister, at a cost of £3,000. The Roman Catholic Chapel, School, and Presbytery cost upwards of £5,000. A new National School has also been built in connection with the Presbyterian congregations, at a cost of about £500. The Third Presbyterian Church has been repaired and added to, and a handsome round tower built by Rev. A. H. Beattie. Markets every Tuesday; fairs third Tuesday of each month. Grain market every Thursday during the season. Petty Sessions are held on the first Thursday of the month. The town has two public bakeries.

          Is a seaport and favourite watering place in the North of Antrim, about six miles N.E. from Coleraine and seven from the world famed coast scenery, the Giants' Causeway. It has more than trebled its population during the last few years, owing to the opening up of the railway communication; and is now one of the most fashionable watering places in the North of Ireland, and is much resorted to during the bathing season. There are many superior lodging houses and bathing lodges for the accommodation of visitors; and, owing to its temperate and tonic atmosphere, many respectable families have located themselves as permanent residents. There is steam communication with Glasgow twice a week, and fortnightly to Islay, during the summer months, giving the tourists ample opportunity of visiting Highland scenery. There is also steam communication with Morecambe once a week, and with Liverpool. The first electric tramway in the United Kingdom, which owes its origin to the indefatigable exertions of Dr. Traill, F.T.C.D., and his brother, Mr. Wm. Traill, C.E., is now running daily. Car leaves at ten o'clock a.m. for the Causeway Hotel. Portrush possesses eight hotels. The permanent population is about 1,300, but during the bathing season it amounts to about 4,000. Recently a natural gold ground has been opened near the railway terminus, and now there is a flourishing golf club with almost 100 members.

          Is a seaport and watering place in County Derry, four miles North from Coleraine, and ten from the celebrated watering place, Giants' Causeway; very prettily and romantically situated at the foot of a branch of the great basaltic range of mountains, and commands an extensive view of the estuary of the Bann, the entrance into Lough Foyle, and the promontory of Downhill, with the peninsula of Innishowen in the distance. The air here is pure, the scenery grand and picturesque, and the facilities for bathing very great. There are public baths, lodging houses and a first rate hotel, the latter fitted up with every accommodation for families and visitors. In appearance the town resembles an English watering place, and is a favourite place of resort during the Summer, and even in the Winter months, having a dry, sandy soil, and being sheltered from easterly winds. The place is plentifully supplied with fish. The population in 1881 was 556.

          Is a brisk little market town in the County Antrim, 17 miles N.W. from Belfast (21 mile by road), and two miles north from the nearest part of Lough Neagh. The river Maine is crossed at the entrance of the town by a stone bridge of nine arches, whence it pursues its course to Lough Neagh, through Shane's Castle Park. This magnificent park extends east and west for upwards of five miles through a richly wooded demesne on "Lough Neagh's banks," and is kindly thrown open to the public by its hospitable proprietor, Lord O'Neill, every Tuesday and Friday. On the banks of the Maine, adjoining the town, is situated the linen factory and bleach works of the old Bleach Linen Company, of which Mr. C. J. Webb is the founder and principal proprietor. The linen goods of this firm are widely known for their high quality and sound blend, attributable to the excellent bleaching quality of the water in the river Maine. Petty Sessions are held first Tuesday in each month. There are three Presbyterian Churches, a Wesleyan Methodist Church, a Roman Catholic Chapel, a spacious Court House, three National Schools, and one which is maintained at the expense of the Right Hon. Lord O'Neill, for the benefit of the children of his tenantry in the locality, and an infant school, capable of accommodating 150 children, erected by Miss Alexander, daughter of the late Bishop of Meath. There is a Dispensary for the district. A company has been formed for lighting the town with gas. The Northern Banking Company have erected a spacious and handsome Bank House for the transaction of business. There is an extensive weekly market every Wednesday, for flax, grain, pork, butter, meat, poultry, eggs, etc.; and on the last Wednesday in each month a fair is held for the sale of cattle, sheep, pigs, and other farm produce; and, in addition to these, there are two fairs in the year, on the 16th July and 1st November. Population in 1881, 868.

The Market House is in the Square, in the upper part of which a Petty Sessions Court is held the first Friday in every month. The Parish Church of Drumgath is a small, neat edifice with a tower. There are three Presbyterian Churches, and also places of worship for the Covenanters and Society of Friends, Methodists, and Roman Catholics.

          Is a beautiful watering place in the County Down, nearly two miles distant East from Warrenpoint, and similarly situated as Warrenpoint, for Rostrevor is completely sheltered from the East winds by the mountains, and thus an advantageous place, in point of climate, for invalids, and particularly recommended for persons afflicted with pulmonary disorders. The village is delightfully seated on a gentle declivity, which rises from a little cove of Carlingford Lough, and commands beautiful views of the woods, mountains, and waters of the Lough's basin. Mr. Inglis, in noticing Rostrevor, says it is, "one of the most beautiful spots in Ireland." The Mourne Hotel is beautifully situated on the main road between Warrenpoint, Rostrevor and Newcastle, and commands unrivalled views of mountain scenery, which are unsurpassed for grandeur by any in Ireland. The hotel is surrounded by its own ornamental grounds, flower gardens, lawns, etc., and commands views of Carlingford Lough and mountains on the one side, with the charming Slieve Ban mountain and wood on the other side. There is also the Woodside Hotel, which is beautifully situated, and in which the visitor or the tourist will find every comfort. Connected with this hotel is a Skating Rink, which is said to be one of the finest in the kingdom. In addition to the above hotels there is also the long established Sangster's Hotel, which is most comfortably fitted up for the reception of visitors. About a quarter of a mile South West of the town stands a handsome monument erected to the memory of the late General Ross, who fell while leading his troops to victory at Bladensburg, in America. The trade done here is very trifling, except the extensive bleach greens belonging to the Messrs. Martin and the Forrestbrook Spinning Company. The Parish Church forms a conspicuous object to the quiet aspect of the place. There are also a Presbyterian Church and a Roman Catholic Chapel. Fairs - Monday before Shrove Tuesday, Easter Monday, Whit Tuesday, 1st August, 19th September, 1st November and 11th December. Matier's Highland coaches run in connection with the morning trains from Warrenpoint to Kilkeel, through Rostrevor. The village is connected with Warrenpoint by an excellent tramway. It is well supplied with water from the Glen stream, which comes direct from the mountains which overhang the village. Population in 1881, 706.

Post Office - Mr. William Shaw, postmaster. Letters arrive every morning at 5-25 a.m., and at 12-25 p.m.; and are despatched at 2 p.m., and at 7-35 p.m.
