Ballymacarrett is immediately connected with Belfast and is united to it by the Queen's Bridge. It is situate in the County Down side
of the river, including an area of 576 acres, and consists of one main street, on the line of the Holywood Road and a number of
smaller ones. A large number of the inhabitants are hand-loom weavers and persons employed in the various factories in the
vicinity- viz., the Foundry, Flint Glass Works, Vitriol Works, Rope Works, Tileries Mills &c. Lagan Village is included in it. On account
of its immediate proximity and connexion with Belfast, the reference to its streets and inhabitants are included in the Alphabetical
Directory of Belfast.
