The Union Workhouse, erected in 1841, is a large building and would accommodate 1,072 inmates.  General Sessions of the peace for the Hilary and Midsummer periods are held, and a manorial court annually.  The Courthouse, a convenient building, was enlarged and improved in 1834, and the bridewell was built the same year.  A station of constabulary is in the town.  The church is a handsome structure, with a square tower, was erected in 1838.  The other places of worship are a Presbyterian church, situated one and a half miles from the town; a Methodist chapel and a Roman Catholic chapel.  About one mile to the North of the town is Bailieborough Castle, the seat of the Right Hon. Sir John Young, Bart.  It is situated in a fine demesne, and occupies the site of an ancient fortress or castle.  The market is held on Monday.  Fairs are held on the third Monday in each month.

                                       BALLIBAY                 back to top

Ballibay, a Market town in County Monaghan.  Is fifty-two miles distant from Belfast, and eight from the county town - Monaghan; is situate on the direct line of road from Dundalk to Enniskillen and the Dundalk and Enniskillen line of railway passes through the Northern end of the town; and it is proposed to connect it with Armagh and Cavan, by a line of railway from Armagh, by Keady, Monaghan, Cootehill to Cavan.  Its markets are held on Saturday and its fairs on the third Saturday in each month.  It has obtained great celebrity for the quality and quantity of flax shown in its markets.  The description brought to market is more particularly confined to hand flax, but a fair supply of milled is also shown.  Its fair is celebrated for a choice supply of horses and black cattle, and since the Dundalk and Enniskillen Railway opened, the market for black cattle stands superior to any in Ireland.  Special trains run in connexion with the Dundalk Steam Packet Company, by which cattle bought in one fair can be sold early on Monday in Liverpool.  The railway is now open from Ballibay to Cootehill.  Trains run four times up and down each day at arrival of each up and down train.  A market for the sale of grain is also held on Tuesdays and Fridays, but is principally confined to oats.  At Crieve, where the bleaching business was formerly conducted, a vast supply of superior water power and extensive buildings are at present unoccupied; but it is generally believed they will, sooner or later, be converted into spinning concerns.  Lying between the town of Carrickmacross, distant about five miles, are spinning mills belonging to Mrs. McKean, of Keady, and adjacent to which stands a tower, the seat of John Leslie, Esq., Laragh.  Within one mile of the town are very extensive corn mills, the property of Mr. W. H. Jackson, Cremorne, and Mr. Brown, Drumfalda, and in which a very extensive trade is carried on for the home and English markets; also, about five miles distant, at Deragooney, mills belonging to R. A. Minnett, Esq., J.P., are worked very extensively for the English markets; there are also several smaller mills in the neighbourhood, and particularly that of Donraymond and Corfad, owned by Thomas and James McCullough, Esqrs., also Shantonagh and Ednafirkin, of vast benefit to the country.  Rather more than central of the town, stands a plain but substantial market-house, lately erected by the owner of the estate, Mrs. Leslie.  Petty Sessions are held every alternate Monday in the market-house.  There is as Established Church and Presbyterian Meeting-house in the town; and in the adjacent localities are one Established and five Presbyterian churches, one Covenanting house and the Roman Catholic chapel of Tullycorbitt and Balintra. A Roman Catholic Chapel is in course of erection. Population in 1851, 1,617.

                                BALLYCASTLE                back to top

Ballycastle, a seaport and market town in County Antrim, forty-two miles N.N.W. from Belfast.  The name of this place, Ballycashlin, signifying in the Irish language "Castletown", is derived from a castle built here in 1609, by Randolph Earl of Antrim, the remains of which, in the year of 1856, were removed, and the site left for building ground.  North-East of Ballycastle lies the Island of Rathlin.  Ballycastle owes its origin to Hugh Boyd, Esq., to whom a lease of the estate was granted by the Earl of Antrim, in 1736.  This gentleman obtained a grant from Parliament of 20,000 and upwards, for the purpose of erecting a pier to protect the shipping frequenting this part of the coast; in consequence, however, of the accumulation of sand, and the injury done to the pier by high-tides, its value as a harbour of refuge is not now recognised.  The place consists of the upper and lower town, lying about a quarter of a mile asunder, and connected by a beautiful avenue of lofty trees.  The lower town is called the quay, separated from which, by a small channel, stands the Glasshouse, occupied as a store since the decline of the local trade; likewise a building, once used as a Custom-house, but now occupied as a dwelling-house.  The upper town is the larger and more important section, and contains the places of worship, several neat villas, and the principal inns - these, the Antrim Arms and Royal Hotel, are well conducted establishments, and are both posting-houses.  Its advantages for sea-bathing, and magnificent scenery adjacent, have rendered Ballycastle very attractive in the Summer.  An inland revenue office and stations of the constabulary and coast-guard are established here.  A handsome church in the Grecian style of architecture, with a finely proportioned octagonal spire, was erected in 1756, at the sole expense of Mr. Boyd, who was interred within its walls on the day of its consecration.  The parish church of Ramoan is a short distance from the town.  The other places of worship are for Presbyterians, Roman Catholics and Methodists.  The charities comprise a dispensary and fever hospital, alms houses, founded and endowed by Mr. Boyd and a Union Workhouse.  In the neighbourhood are two chalybeate springs, and the ruins of Bona Margy monastry, founded for monks of the Franciscan order.  The chapel of this establishment, which is the burial place of the Antrim family, is in a more perfect state than the other remains.  The weekly general market is held on Saturday, beans on Tuesday and for oats &c., on Thursday; there is also a pork and butter market held every Wednesday fortnight, and a large general market held every third Tuesday.  Fairs - Easter Tuesday, the last Tuesday in May, 26th July, the last Tuesday in the months of August, October and November.  Population in 1851, 1,669.

Post-Office - Mrs. Lucas, postmistress.  Letters from Belfast, Antrim, Ballymoney, Ballymena, Coleraine and Londonderry, arrive every morning at twelve, and are despatched at one o'clock p.m.; letters from Belfast, Carrickfergus, Larne, Glenarm and Cushendall, arrive every evening at half past three o'clock, and are despatched every morning at half past nine.

                                       BALLYMENA                       back to top

Ballymena, is a stirring, business and thronged market inland town, in the County of Antrim - twenty-one miles from Belfast - pleasantly situated, two miles above the confluence of the Braid and the Main Waters, and on the high road from Belfast to Coleraine and Londonderry.  Large quantities of linen cloth are made in the neighbourhood, and brought to the Ballymena bleach greens, of which there are many in the vicinity of the town, where the water is abundant and pure.  It is now allowed to be the best linen market in the United Kingdom.  General Sessions of the Peace are held four times a year and Petty Sessions every fortnight.  Court Leet are held on the last Friday in the months of April and October.  The town, which is the property of Sir Robert Shafto Adair, has been greatly improved within the last few years.  The principal streets are wide, well built, and the town is gas lighted, as are the chief shops; many of the houses are of a respectable class and appearance.  The Town Hall, near the centre of the town, is a large and convenient edifice, surmounted by a steeple 96 feet in height.  A Court House has been erected by the county; and a large, elegant and commodious Hotel (by the owner of the town), which, however, has remained unoccupied for the last few years, and is about being converted into two houses, the great extent of the establishment being found rather unsuited to the present business of the town.  The management of the town is vested in nine commissioners, under the provisions of the Towns' Improvement (Ireland) Act, 1854.  Three of these commissioners retire annually, in rotation, but are eligible to be re-elected.  The monetary establishments of Ballymena are a branch of the Belfast Banking Company, of the Northern Banking Company, of the Ulster Banking Company; and of the Provincial Bank of Ireland; and a Savings' Bank has been recently established - the office connected with a news room.  A news room and library, well supplied with the Irish, Scotch and English newspapers, and the best periodicals, is well conducted, and thrown open to strangers.  A Literary and Scientific Society and a Young Men's Christian Association have been added to the public institutions of the town within the last few years; and a local newspaper, published every Saturday, and called the Ballymena Observer, was established in 1855.  The Belfast and Northern Counties Railway has a terminus at the end of the town; and railway communication is open to Portrush, and also along the entire line to Londonderry, via Coleraine.  A new parish church, beautifully situated within the demesne of Sir Robert Adair, at the head of Castle Street, was completed and opened for Divine service in 1855.  Every window in the edifice is of richly stained glass; and the entire cost of the erection was about 5,000.  It is called the Church of St. Patrick, and it is universally regarded as a model of architectural taste.  The other places of worship are four Presbyterian churches, a Roman Catholic Chapel and one for Methodists.  One of the Presbyterian churches was entirely rebuilt lately, at a cost of 1.500.  The Roman Catholic chapel has been pulled down, and a new one is now built, on a very extensive scale of enlargement, and was opened for public worship on the 11th of November.  The population is estimated at 7,000.  There are three weekly markets - namely, on Tuesday, for pork and butter; on Wednesday, for grain; but the principal one is on Saturday, and is a large linen market.  Fairs, 26th July and 21st October.

                                    BALLYMONEY                     back to top

Ballymoney, a market town and parish in the County of Antrim, 35 m. 6f. N.N.W. from Belfast, 14 m. 4f. N.N.W. from Ballymena, seated on a small tributary water of the Bann.  The town lies over an area extending from Milltown, on the Rashaskin Road, to Rawdon Foot.  It was originally irregularly built; but in 1845 the inhabitants placed it under the Act "for lighting and cleansing &c." since which times there is no town of the same size in the North of Ireland so much improved, partly by the inhabitants, who, however, were liberally assisted by their late landlord, the earl of Antrim.  The town is now under the "Town Improvement Act"  There is a large park and cricket ground, kept up by the inhabitants.  The park and garden covers an area of five acres.  Neat and clean footpaths are in every street; the old Town Hall has been remodelled and now stands a beautiful and commodious building, a monument to the liberality of the late noble owner, who also granted to the Ballymoney Gas Company a lease of ground on which their works stand, free of rent, and gave one-eighth of the whole cost of the erection of the works as a donation to the improvement of the town.  It is the capital of the two baronies of Dunluce, and the largest seat of their population, and trade.  The linen manufacture prevails in the neighbourhood.  Branches of the Belfast Bank and of the Ulster Bank are established here.  General sessions of the peace are held twice in each year; petty sessions, once a fortnight.  The Court House, a convenient building, wherein the courts are held, is situated in Charlotte Street and the Bridewell is attached to it.  The Church, a large, plain edifice, with a tower and cupola, was erected in 1782, near the site of an ancient church, of which some fragments still remain,  The other places of worship are for Presbyterians, Roman Catholics, Unitarians and Covenanters.  The trustees of Erasmus Smith's fund established a school in 1813.  There is a Model Agricultural School for the training of young men to agricultural pursuits.  The farm contains about thirty acres, and is situated opposite the workhouse.  There is also a male and female and infant school attached to the farm.  A linen market is held on the first and third Thursday in each month; and a weekly market, for the usual domestic commodities, on Thursday.  The first meeting held to promote the making of a railway from Ballymena, Ballymoney and Coleraine, with a branch to Portrush, thereby to continue the communication entire from Derry to Cork by rail, was held in this town, on 6th September, 1852, and carried on by a few of its spirited inhabitants, aided by some landed proprietors who joined them.  They all exerted themselves sedulously, receiving every encouragement from the land owners along the line, with two or three exceptions; and notwithstanding a determined opposition which they had to encounter, they obtained the royal assent to their Act on the 8th July 1853; the first sod being turned by the chairman of directors, the late lamented Earl of Antrim, on the 21st of the same month, at Portrush.  The railway, nearly thirty five miles in length, was executed in a shorter period of time than any railway before made, of similar extent, in a most satisfactory manner, by the eminent contractor, William Dargan; and having been fully approved of by the Government Inspector on the 6th November 1855, it was immediately opened for traffic to the inhabitants of the county, as well as to tourists and travellers.  The great facilities of a railway communication had induced many, from distant counties, to visit the picturesque and beautiful scenery of the ironbound coast of Antrim, its basaltic cliffs and great national curiosity of the Giant's Causeway, with its numerous interesting views and objects in its neighbourhood, as well as induce parties to take advantage of the fine watering places of Portstewart, Portrush &c.  A dejeuner on a large scale was given in Portrush at its commencement, as also another fete and ball at Ballymoney at its completion, attended on both occasions by a large assembly, representing the rank and influence of the county.  The officers conducting the railway are Charles Lanyon, Esq., C.E., Messrs. Green and Cramsie, solicitors;  James Thompson, Esq., secretary, and E. J. Cotton, Esq, traffic manager.  Fairs - May 6th, July 10th and October 6th.

                                    BALLYNAHINCH                     back to top

Ballynahinch, a small market town in the County Down, thirteen miles from Belfast.  The manor on which the town stands was granted by Charles II. to Sir G. Rawdon, the ancestor of the present Marquis of Hastings, and it continued in the possession of the family of Moira until the year 1800, when it became the property of David Ker, Esq.  Montalto House, adjoining the town, was formerly the chief seat of the Earls of Moira, and has lately been rebuilt in the most costly style by the present owner, D. S. Ker, Esq., D.L., J.P.  It was at Ballynahinch that the insurgents, in 1798, met with a complete overthrow by the troops under General Nugent, when the former sustained a loss of one hundred and fifty men, and the royal troops, forty.  The places of worship are, a very neat Established Church, three Presbyterian churches, a Methodist chapel and a Roman Catholic chapel.  The market house is a very commodious one; the market is held on Thursdays.  Fairs, third Thursday in every month.  Population in 1851, 1,006.  The Spa is about two miles S. W. of the town, and the wells have been put in the best order by the proprietor,  A very commodious news room has also been erected by Mr. Ker.

                                        BALLYSHANNON                        back to top

Ballyshannon, is a market town and seaport (formerly a Parliamentary borough) in the County of Donegal, 128 miles W. from Belfast, and 13 S.S.W. from Donegal, seated on both sides of the Erne, immediately above the influx of that river with Ballyshannon harbour, a creek of Donegal bay.  The harbour, which is about six hundred yards long, and three hundred and fifty broad, looks right through the centre of the bay's entrance into the open Atlantic.  Immediately above the head of the harbour, a large body of the Erne water falls tumultuously over a ridge of rocks sixteen feet above the level ordinary tides, and forms a cataract beautiful and interesting.  This is deemed one of the finest, if not the finest, salmon leap in all Ireland.  Nearly five hundred yards above the fall, a handsome stone bridge, of fourteen arches, connects the two sections of the town.  The fishing commences about the middle of April and continues till the latter end of August.  The principal public buildings, exclusive of those for Divine worship, are the Sessions and Market House, which constitute one building, in a central situation; a small Custom House, a Union Workhouse, a dispensary, public schools and a barrack - the last-named, in a fine healthy situation, is generally occupied by infantry.  In the town is also a station for constabulary.  In the reign of James I., this place, then called Balleshannan, was a village, but considered of sufficient consequence to be incorporated; the style of the municipal body was the "Portrieve Free Burgesses, and Community of the Borough of Balleshannan, or Ballyshannon."  The government of the town is now vested in the county and local magistrates.  The Parish Church, a new but neat structure, surmounts the summit of a hill on the West side of the town.  Presbyterians and Wesleyan Methodists have churches; and within the parishes to which the town belongs are other places of worship for various religious denominations.  One Roman Catholic chapel stands to the East of the principal street, and another on the South side of the Port.   There are also schools, in which children of the poor receive a useful education.  Besides these, the charities comprise the Union Workhouse and dispensary, before referred to.  In the environs is a fragment of the ancient castle of the earls of Tyrconnell, who were long chieftains of a large circumjacent district.  The market, a good one for grain, besides the usual commodities, is held on Saturday.  The fairs are held on the second day of every month (except February, August and on 18th September).  Population in 1851, 3,697.

                                        BANBRIDGE                        back to top

Banbridge, a flourishing market town, in the County of Down, twenty miles S.S.W. from Belfast, lying on the mail road from Belfast to Dublin, and on the left bank of the Bann, from which river, and the bridge (at the foot of the town) by which it is crossed, the name of the place originated.  The principal street, which commences at the bridge, is straight and spacious, and forms part of the thoroughfare between Belfast and Dublin.  There is a considerable market held every Monday, for the sale of flax, pork and butter, and a market for the sale of grain, hay, straw &c., every Tuesday and Friday.  The proximity of the town to the river is very advantageous to the numerous bleach-works,  The general aspect of the town is neat.  The market house, erected at the cost of the Marquis of Downshire, is a handsome building.  The spacious apartments over it are occupied as news and reading rooms, and afford also accommodation to the magistrates, who assemble here in Petty Sessions every alternate Thursday.  The Parish Church, situated in Church street, close to the Bann, is a chaste and elegant structure, in the Elizabethan or Tudor style - cruciform, with a tower surmounted by a spire.  The other places of worship are Presbyterian and Unitarian churches, Baptist and Methodist chapels, and a Roman Catholic chapel.  The town is lighted with gas.  A railway is opened to join the junction line at Scarva.  Another line of railway is at present being made to join the Ulster and Lisburn, passing by Dromore and Hillsborough.  The market days are Monday, Tuesday and Friday, the first named being the most important.  Fairs - January 12th (a large one for horses), June 9th and August 26th.  There is also a fair, or large market, held on the first Monday of every month, except January, June and August.  The population in 1851, 3,301.

                                           BANGOR                         back to top

Bangor, a seaport town in the County of Down, ten miles distant from Belfast.  The terminus of the County Down Railway at Newtownards is within three miles and a half from Bangor.  The town is very ancient.  It is said the first stone and limestone house built in Ireland was built in Bangor.  It is stated that Saint Comgall founded an abbey about the middle of the sixth century, which was burned in 674 and rebuilt in 1125, by Malachy O'Morgair, then abbott; he also added an oratory or chapel, of white stone, from which the place derived the name of Beauchoir, now Bangor, signifying the "White Church" or "Fair Choir."  Part of the abbey ruins still exist, and the traces of the foundations show it to have been of great extent.  The town has greatly improved within the last few years;  the harbour is good and commodious - there is a good pier, a steamboat wharf, and fine beach, well adapted for bathing.  Near the beach are many neat furnished houses and villas, built for the accommodation of parties visiting this favourite bathing shore.  Two steamers ply between Belfast and Bangor thrice daily each during the Summer season.  The principal hotel, "The Royal", Mr. Henry McFall's, is in a most agreeable position, facing the sea, commanding beautiful views of the Lough and of the County Antrim, on the other side.  These conveniences and attractions, together with hot and cold baths, render this one of the most agreeable localities for the Summer season.  The vicinity is enriched with several elegant seats.  R. E. Ward, D.L., J.P., part proprietor of the town, has erected a splendid new castle, in the Elizabethan style of architecture.  It is a superb building, and well worth notice.  The castle is surrounded by an extensive demesne, tastefully planted, and is contiguous to the town.  Crawfordsburn is the residence of Wm. Sharman Crawford, Esq., D.L., J.P., and the splendid seat of Lord Dufferin is within two miles of the town.  The sewed muslin business is carried on to a very great extent, giving employment to thousands of females through the country and town.  Bangor was incorporated by charter of James I., and previous to the Union the corporation returned two members to the Irish Parliament, since which period the borough has ceased to be represented.  A court of Petty Sessions is held by the magistrates of the county occasionally.  The church is a beautiful edifice, with a lofty spire; there are two Presbyterian churches.  The Wesleyan Methodists have one place of worship.  There is also a Roman Catholic chapel.  A parochial school, an infant school and a dispensary are the established charities.  Fairs - January 12th, May 1st, August 1st and November 22nd. Population in 1851, 2,850.

Belturbet, a market town in County Cavan, fifteen miles N.N.W. from Cavan, pleasantly situated on the banks of the Erne, which river is crossed by a handsome stone bridge of three arches, erected in 1836,  It owes its origin to the Lanesborough family, whose patronage contributed materially to the prosperity of the town, which is the property of the present Earl, as is much of the neighbouring land.  The town, which contains some well built houses and a good market house of stone, is situated on the road from Cavan to Ballyconnell.  The River Erne opens a communication through Lough Erne to within three miles of Ballyshannon and the Ulster Canal, by which regular means of transit are effected to the important towns of Belfast, Newry and the intermediate district.  A large amount of linen is produced from the numerous looms of the neighbourhood; and there is an extensive distillery and mills.  The government of the town is vested in commissioners appointed under the regulations of the Municipal Act.  Petty Sessions are held every Saturday in the Town Hall.  A station of constabulary police and barracks are established here.  The parish church of Annagh, situated in the town, is a neat edifice, with a tower, surmounted by a spire, erected in 1828-9.  One of the most handsome Presbyterian churches in the North of Ireland was erected in the centre of the town in 1857.  The site was given by the Earl of Lanesborough.  The other places of worship are two Methodist chapels, and one Roman Catholic chapel.  The market day id Thursday.  Annual fairs, Ash Wednesday, 4th September and the first Thursday in every other month.  Population of the town in 1851, 2,054.
