Carrickfergus, an ancient market town,
and maritime county of a town and parliamentary borough, situate on the N.
shore of Carrickfergus Bay, or Belfast Lough, and enclosed on all other
sides of Antrim County, is eight miles from Belfast. The county of the
town comprises an area of 16,700 acres, of which 12,483 are arable, 4,088
uncultivated and 129 in the town. The surface is hilly; Lough Mourne,
a lake of about 90 acres, is 556 feet above high sea level. In 1851
the population of the town was 3,548. It was formerly a place of great
strength, and is rendered memorable by the landing of King William, in 1690,
previous to the battle of the Boyne. The suburbs are divided into two
sections - namely, Irish Quarter, on the West, and Scotch Quarter, on the
East. The first named obtained its present appellation after the year
1677, when the Lord Lieutenant, the Duke of Ormond, issued a proclamation
commanding all Roman Catholics resident in cities, corporate towns and
forts, to remove beyond the walls. The Scotch Quarter is occupied
chiefly by fishermen, and had its name from a Scotch colony, who arrived
about the year 1665 from Galloway and Argyleshire, and pursued the same
occupation as their descendants do now. The castle, supposed to have
been built by Hugh de Lacy, in 1100, is a noble structure, boldly situated
on a rock projecting into the sea; the inner yard, containing the barrack
and different stores, is large and extensive. The walls are of an
immense thickness. The batteries are at present undergoing
improvement, for the purpose of being mounted with Armstrong guns. The
magazine in the main building is bomb proof, and the different apartments
upwards are occupied as stores for arms and other implements of war.
The view from the top is singularly extensive and beautiful. The
liberties of the town and county of the town of Carrickfergus extend for
miles and is distinct from, but locally in, the County of Antrim. The
landing pier has been much improved, and vessels of one hundred tons can now
discharge at it. Salt was discovered at Duncrue (Carrickfergus), on
the property of the Marquis of Downshire, in 1851; a company had since been
formed to work the salt mine, and large quantities of rock are annually
exported to England and elsewhere for purification. The imports
consist of coal, timber, slate, barley and salt ; and the exports of cattle
and grain. The parish church of Saint Nicholas possesses a few
monumental memorials, and most remarkable and worthy of notice being one of
the Chichester family. Its public buildings are the Town Hall, market
place, parish church, Presbyterian, Independent and the Methodist meeting
houses, Roman Catholic chapel, court house and jail. The corporation,
which was styled "The Mayor, Sheriffs, Burgesses and Commonalty of the
Town of Carrickfergus", under the provisions of the Municipal Reform
Act was dissolved, and a board of municipal commissioners constituted, in
whom is vested the corporate property, valued at £350 per annum. The
borough returns one member to Parliament; constituency under 13 & 14
Vic., c.69, in 1861, 1180. The borough income derived chiefly from
rents, tolls and dues, amounted in 1860 to £766 18s. 4d., the expenditure
being £733 14s. 5 1/4d. Out of the latter sum, £157 9s. 7d. was
expended in salaries; the remainder on the harbour, markets and in supplying
water for the town. The town has much improved of late, and the
several factories in the neighbourhood contribute greatly to its general
prosperity, together with its extensive fisheries, the district of which
comprises sixty one miles of maritime boundaries, and had in 1850, 433
registered vessels, employing 1,307 men and boys. The oysters taken
off the coast are prized for their size and flavour. The customs
duties having been purchased up in 1637, and the custom house transferred to
Belfast, its value has a shipping port has ceased. The Northern Bank
has a branch in the town. It is the head quarters of a coast guard
station, as also of a constabulary district, comprising the stations of
Carrickfergus, Ballyclare, Larne and Whitehouse. A branch of the
Belfast and Ballymena Railway terminates at the town, and a new railway is
now being formed between it and Larne. There are two hotels, the
Victoria and the Old Rock, both in High Street.

Gill's Charity - This charity was established pursuant to the will dated
23rd March, 1761, of Alderman Henry Gill, of Carrickfergus, and has for its
object the annual support and maintenance for ever of fourteen aged men,
decayed in their circumstances, and that are not able to get a maintenance
to themselves, and that have been either born in or inhabitants of the town
and parish of Carrickfergus from their youth. The will expressly
stipulates that none are to be admitted to the charity at any time "but
such men as, while they were able, were careful, industrious and diligent in
following their several trades, occupations or callings; and were not
inclined or given to idleness or drunkenness in their youthful days, or at
any time after, and that were remarkable for their inoffensiveness and good
behaviour, and that did not at any time, from malicious wickedness, injure
their neighbours or any others in their characters or properties," and
also "that no common beggars, asking alms from house to house, be
admitted to the said charity." The property of the charity, which
is vested in trustees appointed under the will, consists of lands and houses
in and near Carrickfergus, and certain moneys invested on first class
security, and produces at the present time an annual income of about £300,
which is almost double what the yearly produce was at the date of the
bequest. It is believed that the entire of the income is applied by
the trustees in accordance with the trusts of the will of the donor ; but,
as the charity is a private one, no accounts are ever issued to the public.
On the death or removal of any of the trustees, the survivors, or any three
of them, are empowered to elect others in their stead, and to continue the
original number of trustees for ever. The present trustees are:-

Carrickmacross, a market town in County Monaghan,
fifty one miles N.W. by N. from Dublin, ten S. from Castleblayney, situated
on the mail road from Dublin to Londonderry. It derives its name from
its situation on a rock (Carricq), and from one of its early
proprietors, Ross, a celebrated Irish Chieftain. The Eastern
part of this barony now belongs to the Marquis of Bath, and the Western to
E. J. Shirley, Esq., of Lough Feagh Castle. The town consists of one
wide principal street, with several lanes diverging, the houses in the main
street are uniformly built, but the market house, which stands in the
centre, obstructs the view. In 1844, a handsome court house was
erected, it is situated at the North end of the town, fronting to Main
Street, and is ornamental to that locality. The bridewell was erected
in 1836. Malting is carried on extensively by the Messrs. Gartlan
& Sons. The parish church is a neat stone edifice, with a tower
(in which is a clock with four dials), surmounted by a spire, it was erected
in 1786. The Roman Catholic chapel was built in 1783. The
benevolent institutions consist of a dispensary, fever hospital, erected in
1842, and a union workhouse, opened in 1843. The educational
establishments comprise a free grammar school, founded and endowed by Lord
Weymouth in 1711, a school under the National Board of Education, and a
parochial one. The market days are Wednesday and Saturday, for grain,
and Thursday, general market. Fairs, second Thursday in January,

Castleblayney, is a market town in
County Monaghan. The town derives its name from the family of Blayney,
and the Castle, which was erected here by Sir Edward Blayney, in the
reign of James I., who created him Baron Blayney of Monaghan. The
Blayney estate has passed from their hands to Henry Thomas Hope, Esq., of
London, who has done everything in his power since he became proprietor to
improve the condition of his tenantry and the appearance of the town.
In the centre of the town, in an elevated spot, stands the market house,
court house, news room and concert hall, in one building. There is a
county bridewell, a union poor house and a dispensary in the town.
General Sessions of the Peace are held four times in the year, and Petty
Sessions every alternate week. The Dundalk and Enniskillen Railway
passes close to the town. Mr. John Ralston's Hotel is an exceedingly
comfortable and well conducted house. The places of worship are - The
Parish church of Mucknoe, two Presbyterian churches, one for Wesleyan
Methodists, and two Roman Catholic chapels. The market days are
Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday (flax market), and Friday, the first and last
for grain. Fairs on the first Wednesday in each month.
Population in 1851, 2,084. The demesne is well worth visiting, and is
greatly improved by the present proprietor.

Castledawson, is an inland town, in County
Londonderry, about twenty four miles from Belfast, delightfully situated on
the Mayola River, on the road from Magherafelt to Ahoghill, and rather more
than two miles N.W. of the North-Western extremity, of Lough Neagh.
The river is crossed by a stone bridge of one arch, supposed the largest
span in Ireland, erected by the Dawson family, and hence its former name of
Dawson's Bridge. (A second bridge has since been erected) Its
present appellation is derived from its proprietor, Joshua Dawson, Esq.,
who, in 1710, was Chief Secretary for Ireland, and erected, in 1713, a
castle, of which only the ruins remain. The present seat of the family
and residence of Captain Robert Peel Dawson, Castledawson, is nearly
adjoining the town, situated in a beautiful demesne, through which passes an
ancient avenue, three miles in length, opening to a magnificent view of
Lough Neagh, to which it extends. The town consists of two principal
and a few smaller streets, some of the houses composing which are large and
well built, of stone. The manufacture of cotton prevails in the town
and neighbouring district, and the making of coarse earthenware and bricks
is carried on most extensively. The church, which stands on the
Western side of the river, in the parish of Ballyscullion, was erected by
the later Right Hon. G. R. Dawson, and by him beautifully ornamented; among
other embellishments, its stained glass window is much admired. The
other places of worship are for Presbyterian and Wesleyan Methodists.
Population in 1851, 663.

Castlewellan, is a market town in
County Down, sixty three miles N. by E. from Dublin, nine S.W. from
Downpatrick. It is environed by eminences. Near the foot of
Slieve-na-lat, and on the border of a lake, is an elegant cottage built by
Earl Annesley, and on the tasteful pleasure grounds is a temple, from which
a fine view of the surrounding scenery is commanded. Earl Annesley
enjoys the inferior title of Baron of Castlewellan, in the Peerage of
Ireland. Within two miles of the town is Tollymore Park, the elegant
seat of the Earl of Roden, the demesne abounding with delightful scenery,
enriched with water, and all that can adorn a beautiful landscape.
There are several other handsome dwellings, occupying pleasant situations,
in the vicinity of the town. Castlewellan consists principally of an
upper and lower square, connected by a main street. Bleaching of linen
is carried on largely. The bleach greens belonging to the Messrs.
Murland are on a very extensive scale. These gentlemen have also
erected two large mills for spinning yarn, the machinery of the one
propelled by water power, the other by steam, and both lighted by gas made
on the premises. The yarn produced from these works is for the most
part manufactured into linen in the houses here, and furnishes employment to
numerous families in the town and neighbouring districts. There has
been erected and munificently endowed a new church by Earl Annesley, at a
cost of £6,000 or £7,000. it is built in the early English style of blue
and white granite. There is also a Presbyterian and Methodist church,
and Roman Catholic chapel. J. Murland, Esq., munificently built and
endowed a school for children of both sexes, and there is one upon the
National plan. There is also a neatly fitted up Court House, in which
Petty Sessions are held once every month. William Beers, Esq., Brook
Cottage, is seneschal. The market is on Monday, and fairs on the 1st
February, 1st May, 1st June, 1st September, second Monday of April, July,
August and October, 13th November and Tuesday before Christmas.
Population of the town in 1851, 849.

"The Towns Improvement (Ireland) Act, 1854." Cavan is situate on
the road between Dublin and Enniskillen, fifty five miles from Dublin, and
sixty six from Belfast. The town consists of two parallel streets,
with a few smaller ones branching from them. The places of worship are
the church - a handsome structure, a Presbyterian church, a Wesleyan chapel,
a Primitive Methodist chapel, and a Roman Catholic chapel. About
a quarter of a mile from the town is a classical school, chartered by
Charles I., and its management, by a late Act pf Parliament, transferred to
a board of commissioners of education, the master being appointed by the
Lord Lieutenant. The school house, re-erected in 1819, in a beautiful
situation, is a spacious building, calculated for the reception of one
hundred pupils. At the North end of the town is situated the residence
of the Roman Catholic bishop, at the rear of which stands the diocesan
college, with its beautiful and extensive pleasure grounds. The market
for grain is held on Monday, and general market on Tuesday. The fairs
are held on the second Tuesday in each month, except May fair, on the 14th

Clogher, is a small market town (the
head of a diocese, the bishopric of which was united to the Primacy of
Armagh) in the County of Tyrone, ninety eight miles N.N.W., from Dublin, and
nine miles W. from Aughnacloy, situated on the road from the latter town to
Enniskillen, on the banks of the Blackwater. This ancient Episcopal
city, now only a village in appearance, is said to have derived its name
from a stone covered with gold, the Clochoir, or "Golden
Stone," and these is still a very ancient stone lying on the South side
of the cathedral tower, which many believe to be the real clochoir.
The town is now the property of G. C. Brackenridge, Esq., J.P. The
Episcopal palace is a large and handsome edifice, close to the cathedral on
the South side of the town, and consists of a centre and two wings. It
is entered by an elegant portico, supported by lofty fluted columns.
The erection of this palace was commenced by Lord John Beresford, Primate of
Armagh, while Bishop of Clogher, and completed by Lord R. P. Tottenham,
bishop, who died 29th April 1850. The palace and demesne are now
occupied by John Wm. Ellison, Esq., J.P., son-in-law of the Rev. J. G.
Porter, the owner of both. The cathedral dedicated to Saint Macartan,
and from time immemorial the parish church, is a large and handsome
cruciform structure, with a lofty square tower, rising from the West front.
There are several elegant monuments, and the throne of the bishop is very
beautiful, besides which the interior is handsomely fitted up. Two
Presbyterian churches and four Roman Catholic chapels are the other places
of worship. A union workhouse and a dispensary are the principal
charities. The market is held on Saturday, and the fairs (with
exception of the Spring fair, on the 26th May and Lammas, 26th July), on the
20th day of every month. The Spring fair is held on the 6th May.
Clogher contains 613 inhabitants.

Coleraine, is a Parliamentary borough, in County
Londonderry, forty four miles N. of Belfast. It is a manufacturing and
commercial town, and is situated on the River Bann. This town has been
long remarkable for the fineness of its linen cloth, the excellence of its
salmon fishery, and the beauty of its rural scenery. The population in
1851 was 5,920 inhabiting 1,063 houses. The town is built on each side
of the Bann, four miles from the sea, over which is a splendid stone bridge
of three arches, ninety six yards in length by thirty two feet in breadth,
and cost £14,500. It consists of a central square called the Diamond,
and several diverging streets. The portion on the West side of the
Bann is called Waterside, or Killowen. The public buildings are
- two Parish churches, three Presbyterian, one Independent, one Methodist,
one Baptist Meeting House, and two Roman Catholic chapels; the Town Hall,
Court House and Market House, and an Endowed School. A national model
school and Academical Institution have lately been erected in Killowen,
adjoining the town. The linen trade has been long and extensively
carried on here, particularly in a fine description, called "Coleraines",
the annual sales are estimated to amount to about £600,000. Here are
also soap, candles and leather manufactured. The salmon and eel
fisheries on the river are farmed at £1,200 annually by the Irish Society
to Messrs. Allen and Gordon. A brisk export trade, chiefly to
Liverpool by steam, is carried on through Portrush, the shipping port at the
mouth of the Bann, five miles from the town, the harbour, of which is formed
by two moles or break waters, one 800, and the other 650 feet in length,
with an entrance of 200 feet wide, and the whole covering as area of eight
acres, with from fifteen to twenty feet depth of water at the wharf's, but
vessels of 200 tons can discharge at the quay of Coleraine. A
Government survey of the River Bann, from Coleraine to the sea, has been
completed. The town is now connected with Belfast and Derry by
railway, with a branch to Portrush harbour. The Provincial Bank and
Northern Banks have branches here. Gas Works have been erected.
The Workhouse was opened on the 11th April 1842. The corporation,
whole style was "The Mayor, Alderman and Burgesses of the town of
Coleraine," has become extinct, and its property, amounting in 1844 to
£1,335, chiefly arising from rents and the tolls and customs, is now vested
in the Town Commissioners. The borough returns one member to
Parliament, constituency in 1853, 246. Quarter Sessions are held here,
and Petty Sessions every second Friday. Fairs are held on the 12th May
and 12th November, horse fair second Tuesday in February, August and
November. Markets on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, for grain, and
Saturdays, for regular market. The town is the head quarters of the

Comber, or Cumber, is a market town in County Down,
fourteen miles from Downpatrick, seven E.S.E. from Belfast, situated on the
road from Belfast to Downpatrick. It is tolerably well built, and
formed of four main streets, which intersect each other at right angles, and
terminates in a handsome square, in the centre of which is a Masonic
monument to General Gillespie, erected by subscription. The river
Comber, upon whose banks the town is situated, and from which its name
derived, runs into Strangford Lough, on the east side of the parish, and the
tide flows to within a short distance of the town. The principal fuel
consumed here is turf, which is supplied from an extensive bog in the
neighbourhood, called Moneygreer, or the Royal Bog, from which great
quantities are also sent to Belfast and other places. There are two
extensive distilleries here, the same number of corn mills, two respectable
hotels, and a large bleach green. A manorial court is held every third
Thursday, for the manor of Comber, for recovery of debts not exceeding £10.
The church is a small handsome building. There are places of worship
for Presbyterian, Unitarians and Wesleyan Methodists. The educational
institutions are a school, founded by Viscountess Castlereagh in 1813; one
under Erasmus Smith's charity, and congregational and national schools.
The market is held on Tuesday. Fairs - January 5th, April 5th, June
28th and October 19th.

Cookstown, is a flourishing and respectable market
town in County Tyrone, thirty five miles W. from Belfast, very pleasantly
seated on the Kildress rivulet, and on the great North Road from Armagh, at
the point where it communicates with the roads leading respectively towards
Londonderry and Coleraine. Its main street, or chief thoroughfare, is
spacious and ornamented with fine lofty trees on wither side. This
principal street, with its trees, presents the appearance of a mall, and is
so intimately connected with the adjacent finely wooded demesne of Killymoon,
as to possess a delightfully rural character. The mansion or castle of
Killymoon is a superb edifice, in the Saxon style, built from designs by
Nash, at a reputed cost of £80,000. The staple of Cookstown may be
considered its linen trade, in which many respectable merchants are
embarked, and there are several extensive bleach greens, flax mills, corn
and meal mills and seed merchants. At the South end of the town a corn
mill has lately been erected, Godfrey O. Lyle, proprietor. A factory
for weaving linen by steam power has been in operation some time, giving
employment to 150 operatives, John Gunning & Sons, proprietors.
Petty Sessions are held each alternate Friday by the local magistrates.
The Town Commissioners meet the first Monday in each month, in the Town
hall, James' Street, Henry Graves, M.B., and F.R.S.A., chairman for
the time being. A new mansion has lately been built at the east of the
town, at a cost of £3,000, by H. R. Charles & Co., for Jas Gunning,
Esq. The site is the best about the town, having a view of a large
part of the County of Antrim, as well as of Lough Neagh. The parish
church of Derryloran is being rebuilt. The other places of worship are
three Presbyterian churches, two Methodist meeting houses and a Roman
Catholic chapel. There are several educational and other charitable
institutions - the former comprises national and ragged schools, supported
by public subscription. The market days are Tuesday and Saturday, the
latter for farming produce, which is brought in abundance, the former for
grain. Fairs - First Saturday in each month. Population in 1851,

Crumlin, is a small post-town in the County Antrim,
thirteen English miles W. to N. from Belfast, situated on the road between
Antrim and Lurgan and two miles and a half East of the head of the bay of
Lough Neagh. On the Camlin, which skirts the town, and from which
river its name is a corruption, are extensive corn and flour mills.
From the situation of the town near Lough Neagh, it derives facility of
communication by water with Belfast, Newry, Antrim, Magherafelt and other
towns. Petty Sessions are held on the first and third Monday of every
month, and a station of the constabulary force is established here.
The parish church was destroyed by the army of James II., in 1609, and its
ruins, which are very interesting, remain a monument of the sacrilegious
act. The Presbyterians and Unitarians have each a place of worship,
and there are two free schools and a dispensary. One of the schools
was built and endowed by the late Major General the Hon. Sir H. R. Pakenham,
of Langford Lodge, the other is under the National Board of Education.
Fairs, the first Monday, monthly. There is also a market every Monday
for the sale of pork, butter and eggs. Population on 1851, 398.

postmistress. Letters from Dublin, and all parts of the
South of Ireland, also from England, arrive every morning at 2
