          The town of Pettigo is situated part in County Donegal and part in the County Fermanagh, within three miles of the celebrated pilgrimage of Lough Derg, and has a population of about 500, and also a large Roman Catholic chapel, an Episcopal, a Presbyterian, and a Wesleyan Church. It has a good market, which is held every Monday, and a good monthly fair on the 20th of each month. The great Northern Railway have a very compact and neat station adjoining the town. It possesses splendid corn and flax mills, built with all modern improvements. The town, through the exertions of a few of its townsmen, has been lighted during the winter nights, which adds very much to the comfort of the inhabitants, who are quite proud of the results of their exertions.

          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 1891 it was upwards of 8,384. The town stands on a rising ground, and is well cleansed and lighted; 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 six large weaving factories and a spinning mill, which give employment to many people, one large flour mill, and several hemstitching factories. The chief 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, the Victoria Hall, and the Fever Hospital. 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 erected in Edward Street a new Town Hall at a cost of about £2,500. The hall was completed in November, 1890, and is a handsome and commodious building. The Local Government Board sanctioned a loan of £1,900 from the Board of Public Works towards the erection of the new buildings. 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. A new Wesleyan Church was opened in Edenderry in February, 1891. The Presbyterian Churches - two in number - are commodious and well appointed; the First Presbyterian Church was reopened for Divine Service in November, 1891, after being considerably enlarged. 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 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 newspapers. Petty Sessions are held on the second and fourth Mondays in each month.

          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 form 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. The places of worship are - the Church of Ireland, Ballyphillip, a neat structure; a Presbyterian church; one Methodist church; and a Roman Catholic Chapel. The public institutions consist of a dispensary and three public schools, all under the National Board. Lieut.-General Andrew Nugent, D.L., J.P., is the proprietor of Portaferry, and has a fine mansion and demesne contiguous to the town. The market is held on Saturday, and the fairs on the 31st July and 12th December, and the second Tuesday monthly. The town contained, by the census in 1891, 1,708 inhabitants. A Protestant Hall was built in 1870, and there is a handsome Coast Guard Station at the south end of the town. Messrs. Norton & Co. run an excellent long car, and also the mail car between Portaferry and Belfast.

          Is situated in the County Antrim, on the River Bann, about nine miles from Ballymena and thirty three from Belfast. 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 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. Beatty. 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 every month. The town has one public bakery. An agent of the Northern Bank, Ballymena, attends every first and third Tuesday of the month.

          Until recent years Portrush, or "Port Rosse," as it is called by Dr. Todd, situate in the North of Antrim, about six miles North-East from Coleraine, and seven from the far-famed Giants' Causeway, was but a small fishing village. Its popularity as a watering place and the charm and attractiveness of its surrounding scenery has, however, of late, brought it into great repute, and been the means of increasing its population considerably. Year after year handsome and substantial buildings are replacing the rude dwellings which hitherto sheltered the hardy fishermen, and splendid hotels, latest being the new Golf and Hydropathic, affording every comfort and accommodation to the weary invalid or those "on pleasure bent," have been erected in various parts of the town. Nothing, perhaps, has been more beneficial to Portrush than the opening up of railway and steam communication, as by this means pleasure-seekers from all parts of the world have been enable to enjoy a holiday at this "Queen of Watering-places," pay a visit to the Giant's Causeway, an object of admiration and bewilderment to all who gaze on its curious formation, or recruit their health while promenading on Ramore Hill, or the beautiful yellow strand stretching for miles along the shore. The great influx of visitors during the summer months of the past few years has been the means of stirring up the inhabitants to a sense of the importance of making the town as healthful and attractive as possible, and providing sources of amusement during the holiday season. An Improvement Committee, whose services were gratuitously rendered, has contributed not a little to this end, and it is to be hoped this useful body will continue to exert themselves in the way of providing still further sources of amusement during the coming season. A board of Town Commissioners has been appointed in addition to the Town's Improvement Committee. In order to encourage the committee, and at the same time promote the prosperity of the town, the Earl of Antrim, lord of the soil, has generously granted a handsome annual subscription to the funds, and the Belfast and Northern Counties Railway has followed his good example, provided the inhabitants continue to raise an equal sum. We understand the inhabitants have qualified for the receipt of the donations. As the result of this enterprise, there is good reason to believe that ere long Portrush will enjoy all the attractions and conveniences of the most fashionable English watering places. A thorough system of drainage, at a cost somewhat under £3,000, has been completed. A Fishery pier has been erected by the Fishery Commissioners, at a cost of about £1,200. The liberal patronage of Portrush, as a health resort, has encouraged the inhabitants to improve and extend the accommodation, and a number of fashionable villa residences have been erected at Mount Royal and other points, the latest addition being a very substantial and artistic block called Breezemount terrace. The Northern Counties Railway Company have erected a new station, at an estimated cost of about £10,000. A handsome new Methodist Church, erected as a memorial to the late Dr. Adam Clarke, has been completed. There are excellent lending libraries in connection with the Episcopal and Presbyterian Churches, and a branch of the Girl's Friendly Society has been established. Coal and Clothing Clubs for the benefit of the poor of the town and surrounding districts have been established in connection with the Episcopal and Presbyterian Churches. The trip to the Causeway has been rendered both interesting and enjoyable, from the fact that visitors are conveyed by means of the first Electric Tramway in the United Kingdom. The latest additions to the attraction and health-giving recreations of the town is the establishment of a Golf Club, under the distinguished presidency of Lord Antrim, which has already attained to a membership of about 350. In addition to the annual tournament and grand championship competition for cups and other prizes, there are now monthly competitions both winter and summer, and the golf links are regarded as one of the best in Ireland. The popularity of the game and the health-giving exercise which it affords to both ladies and gentlemen, has made the town almost as attractive as a winter resort, as its salubrity, excellent sea bathing, and picturesque scenery has spread its fame as the Brighton of Ireland during the summer season. In addition to the other entertainments, "The Excelsion Military Band" performs each day on the fashionable promenade during the entire season. Steamers call at the port weekly from Glasgow and Liverpool. The bathing accommodation is excellent, and there is a commodious bath-house on the beach, under the same management as the Northern Counties Hotel. It may be added that bathing is safe at all times of the day and in all conditions of the tide; but as a guarantee against accidents a man is always in attendance with life-saving apparatus. With regard to the hotels and the accommodation which they afford it is only necessary to say that they are numerous, comfortable, and convenient. The permanent population is about 1,600, but during the bathing season it increases to about 4,000.

          The little village of Portstewart is situate on the sea shore, midway between Portrush and Coleraine. Historically or commercially it had no pretensions, and cannot lay claim to even a spectral ruin or weekly market. Notwithstanding, the long line of comfortable and substantial dwelling houses, which afford a charming outlook to the sea, would put to shame those in centres of greater commercial industry and progress. The village, it appears, takes its name from a Lieutenant Stewart, who was the first known owner of the estate on which it stands. It is recorded that four little sod cottages, with their gables to the sea, were built by this gentleman on the site now occupied by the residence of Mr. James A. Lyle, the Post Office, and Bath Cottage, and these formed the commencement of what at present is one of the most charming, salubrious, and popular of Northern health resorts. The first tenants of the cottages, it is said, were four fishermen, whom Mr. Stewart brought with him from Innishowen, and furnished with a boat and lines to enable them to follow their usual avocation, the rent and hire of the boats and lines being fixed at a fish each day, when they were caught, and a day's cutting of turf annually in Roselick Bog. Then, as now, Portstewart belonged to the Cromore estate. After the death of Mr. Stewart, the property passed to a Mr. Stafford, and after him to Mr. Cromie, in whose family it still remains, the present owner being Mrs. Cromie, a lady who has done much to promote the happiness and welfare of her tenantry. It is as a health resort that Portstewart justly claims the attention of the wealthy Prince or lowly peasant. In this respect it has few equals, and its quiet and peaceable inhabitants vie with each other in making the temporary home and visits of their patrons as pleasant and as enjoyable as possible. Shut out by nature's bulwarks from the chilly north and withering east winds, visitors can bask in the sunshine during the summer and autumn months among the rocky cliffs, and drink in the pure ozone from the sea, or bathe their languid limbs in its briny waters, which roll up almost to the very doors. To meet the requirements of increasing patronage the owners of houses in the village have within recent years made great improvements, both externally and internally, and the granting of perpetuity leases by the landlady has given a remarkable impetus to the building trade, which, it is believed, will result in the addition of numerous villa residences on a scale even more complete and artistic than any hitherto erected. In addition to the many private houses let for the accommodation of visitors the village is supplied with three commodious hotels, capable of affording comfortable quarters to a large number of patrons. There are also public baths, which are under the experienced and efficient management of Mr. McArevey. A very handsome terrace of new houses, called "Victoria Terrace," in honour of her Majesty's Jubilee, has been completed by Mr. S. R. Henry. Several of the public buildings are worthy of a passing notice. Prominent amongst these is the fine old Castle, standing on a projecting rock rising one hundred feet above the level of the sea. It was rebuilt by Henry O'Hara, Esq., about fifty years ago, and is at present in the occupation of the Rev. James O'Hara, father of the popular Rector of Coleraine. The Church of Ireland, Clarke Memorial (Methodist), Presbyterian Church, Cromore House, the residence of Mr. R. A. C. Montagu, and Portstewart House, the residence of Mr. James A. Lyle, are among the principal local buildings. A new harbour and pier has been completed some time ago, at a cost of £4,000, of which the Board of Works granted £3,000. Mrs. Cromie, proprietress of the estate, contributed £500, and the balance was raised by public subscription. Like many similar works, the advantage gained is hardly commensurate with the expenditure, as the accommodation is very inadequate. In stormy weather the fishermen can only enter the harbour with difficulty. Although Portstewart cannot boast of richness in old ruins, it has been the home of those who wielded a mighty influence among men, and secured for themselves a name that will live in the hearts and homes of the people for generations to come. Amongst these the names of Dr. Adam Clarke (to whose memory a handsome Memorial (Methodist) Church, capable of seating two hundred persons, has been erected) and Dr. Charles Lever, the talented novelist. The village is connected with the Portrush branch of the Belfast and Northern Counties Railway by a steam tramway, so that visitors have no difficulty in reaching it by rail, and we have no doubt when it becomes more widely known it will be more liberally patronised than it has been in the past.

          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. 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. One of the best grass-seed markets in the North of Ireland is held here; 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.

          Raphoe is a fair and market town, situated 12 miles from Londonderry, 6 from Strabane, 7 from Stranorlar, and 10 from Letterkenny. The weekly market, which is held on Saturday, is well supplied with oats, pork, butter, and eggs. The fairs are held on the first Saturday after 11th January, February, March, April, July, September, October, and December; also, on 1st May, 22nd June, 27th August, and 4th November. These fairs are among the best in Ulster. Cars leave Raphoe at 8 a.m. to meet the down train at St. Johnstone, and returning to Raphoe on the arrival of the 4-40 up train from Londonderry. The population of the town is about 950. The town has improved considerably within the last few years; many of the small houses have been removed, and new and substantial structures have been erected in the town, while some of the older buildings have been very much improved in their general appearance. The First Presbyterian Church in Meetinghouse Street, the Second in The Diamond, and the neat Roman Catholic Chapel on the Convoy Road, are recent erections. The Cathedral of St. Eunan, which is also the Parish Church, is supposed to have been founded in 565. It is a plain building, of cruciform shape, with a square tower about 100 feet high at the west end, built by Bishop Forster in 1738. The church is one of the oldest in Ireland, and contains interesting specimens of the most ancient ecclesiastical architecture. The present energetic incumbent contemplates restoring the original design. There is a prosperous Literary Society connected with the town, which was established in the year 1858. The town owes its prosperity chiefly to the fact of its being placed in the centre of a rich and fertile district, where farming operations are carried out on an extensive scale. Raphoe was distinguished in the Irish Rebellion in 1641, when the town was burnt down by the rebels, and the inhabitants obliged to seek shelter in the Castle (at the time the residence of the Bishop), which was besieged for sixty-three days. The rebels having raised the siege, the besieged, led by Bishop Leslie, sallied forth, and pursued them to Battleburn, near the boundary of the parish, where they were defeated with great slaughter; and again, in the troublous times of 1798, when the loyal inhabitants, under Bishop Hawkins, signalised themselves in many instances in crushing the rebellion in this part of the country. A neat obelisk, erected to the memory of the Protestants of this period, stands in the Bishop's demesne, at Raphoe. The Raphoe Royal School was founded by grant of Charles I. (1627) to the Archbishop of Armagh. The house is a very fine building, in thorough repair, well fitted for the accommodation of sixty boarders. It is situated near the demesne occupied by the Bishops of Raphoe, before the See was united to Derry. The endowment is £220 per annum. The traditions of the school are highly respectable.

          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, and commands views of Carlingford Lough and mountains on the one side, with the charming Slieve Ban mountain and wood on the other. There is also the Woodside Hotel. In addition to the above hotels there is also the long established Sangster's Hotel. South of the town stands a handsome stone monument, erected to the memory of the late General Ross, who fell while leading his troops to victory at Bladensburg, in America. The trade in Rostrevor is trifling, except the extensive bleach greens belonging to the Messrs. Martin & Company, and the Forestbrook Spinning Company. The Church of Ireland forms a conspicuous object to the quiet aspect of the place. There are also a Presbyterian Church and a Roman Catholic Chapel. Fairs - Third Tuesday in each month. Matier's long cars run in connection with the morning trains from Warrenpoint to Kilkeel, through Rostrevor. The village is connected with 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
