Is a neat little town in the County of Donegal, situate about thirty miles from Letterkenny.  It is surrounded on one side by the mountains of Donegal, and by the Atlantic Ocean on the other.  A fair is held on the last Thursday of each month, the pig fair being held the day previous.  Minerals are found to a great extent in the neighbourhood.  A railway is at present in course of construction from Letterkenny to Burtonport, which will pass within one and a half miles of Falcarragh, and will open up the surrounding neighbourhood greatly.  The population is about 600.  The country round about is celebrated for its wild and picturesque scenery.

The town of Fintona is situated in the southern division of the County of Tyrone, and is noted for its commercial activity and the importance of its fairs and markets, which now rank among the most successful in the county.  The name is supposed to have been derived from the Irish finn-tonagh, fair white valley or field, and as the town is situated in the midst of an extremely fertile valley, the appellation is in every respect most appropriate.  Of the ancient castle of the O'Neills which once stood in the vicinity, scarcely a trace remains, although its commanding site, which was formerly surrounded by a deep trench, can still be clearly pointed out.  The building, which now belongs to the forgotten past, will, however, still be perpetuated in memory since it has given a name to adjoining district, Castletown - the seat of Dr. Duncan's family residence - Castle Lodge.  Fintona stands on the property of the late John S. Eccles, Esq., D.L., whose palatial mansion, with its beautiful grounds, now the property of Captain and Mrs. McClintock, Seskinore, immediately adjoins the town.  The manor is presently tenanted by Major H. G. S. Alexander, J.P., who manages the adjoining estate.  The places of worship are the Irish Church, a substantial structure, containing a beautiful memorial window erected to the memory of the late Mr. Eccles; the Presbyterian Church, a neat and commodious building; a handsome Methodist Church; and, convenient to the town, the Roman Catholic Church, a spacious edifice, with an imposing tower and spire containing one of the richest toned bells in the diocese.  Besides these, regular meetings of a limited congregation representing the Plymouth Brethren are held in a suitable house in Castletown; which the officers of the Salvation Army hold a regular series of services in the Town Hall.  Of church architecture of byegone days there is a very suitable and lasting memento in the remains of the old church at the head of the town, which, with its ivy mantles tower, forms one of the most picturesque ruins imaginable.  The educational requirements of the people are well and successfully met by the Castletown and King Street (male and female) schools, both of which are very capably conducted.  The town has been much improved in recent years, and its banks, shops, and hotels would compare favourably with similar establishments in much larger towns.  The progress noticeable in the building trade some years ago has not, however, been very keenly maintained of late, for the apparent reason that the present house accommodation is sufficient to meet the demands of the public in every direction.  The town, so far as its commercial development is concerned, may, therefore, be expected to remain in its present condition until one or other of the local capitalists see their way to take advantage of the industrial possibilities of the place, which is an event of rather uncertain consummation. Several efforts have indeed been made to start some suitable industry in the district, but apart from the local co-operative creamery, which has proved a decided boon to the agricultural population, there is very little prospect of any further practical movement in the same direction for some time to come.  Fintona is an important station on the Great Northern Railway, and is approached by a branch line of about half a mile in length, on which a van, built on the tramcar principle, plies for the conveyance of passengers to and from the junction.  The two places are further connected by a loud speaking telephone, by which the station master at the town receives direct intimation of the departure of all trains from the preceding station.  A market for the sale of pork, corn, butter, and other agricultural produce is held every Friday, and a horse, cattle, sheep and pig fair on the 22nd of each month.  The public affairs of the town are capably conducted by an energetic committee, of which Mr. J. F. Buchanan is the honorary secretary. The population, according to the last census, was 1,271

A market town with about 600 inhabitants, in the southern extremity of County Tyrone, near the Fermanagh boundary, on a ridge which forms the Watershed between the Erne and the Northern Blackwater, which flow into Lough Neagh. Before the Ulster Plantation it is said to have been called Ballynalurgan, and for some time afterwards to have borne the name of Blessingbourne, that of the Plantation Manor in which it is situated; early in the last century, however, it acquired its present name, supposed to be derived from the fact that it is five miles from Clogher, Tempo, and Brookborough, respectively, places which Fivemiletown has long overtaken and surpassed in prosperity and importance.  Fivemiletown is a station on the Clogher Valley Light Railway, twenty-eight miles (statute) from Tynan Junction, and ten from Maguiresbridge, both on the Great Northern Railway. There is a weekly pork, butter, corn and egg market, and a monthly cattle fair.  The business of the town has much increased since the opening of the Clogher Valley line in 1885, and it is expected to increase in size and prosperity.  It lies in the midst of a pleasing, undulating, well-timbered, well farmed portion of the Clogher Valley, bounded on the north and south by high hills.  By road it is thirteen miles from Omagh, twenty miles from Dungannon, and eleven miles from Enniskillen

This pretty little town is situate almost on the extreme verge of the County Derry, being only four miles from the River Bann, which divides it from County Antrim.  It is nine miles Irish from Coleraine, and twenty-three from Derry City.  It is considered by judges to be one of the prettiest little towns in Ulster, or perhaps in Ireland.  This is greatly owing to the great breadth of its main street, which is second to none in the north in that respect.  It is also of some historic interest, especially for a battle fought between Loyalists commanded by Colonel Canning, and Sir Phelim Roe O'Neill, in 1641, in which Colonel Canning's force was defeated and himself killed.  There have been also some other skirmishes of more modern date, the most notable of which was one generally called the battle of Garvagh, in the year 1813, from which all events have been dated since.  The town is well sheltered from westerly winds by Lord Garvagh's Demesne, and from the north by hermitage, the residence of the Lady Garvagh.  About ten minutes' walk further on is the seat of Lieut.-Col. R. C. McCausland, one of the handsomest places in the neighbourhood.  The houses in Garvagh are substantial and well built.  The country is undulating, the hills rising at a distance of about two miles from the town, to what are called "the mountains," from which there is a splendid view, on clear days, of the Highlands of Scotland, the Cave Hill of Belfast, Mourne Mountains, and Lough Neagh, being clearly visible with the naked eye.  The air is pure and bracing.  It is a good agricultural and cattle-raising district; the soil is of a dry, light nature, easily laboured, and not easily injured by drought or wet.  The crops best suited to it are oats, flax, and potatoes, the last being of an exceptionally food quality.  The markets are held three days in the week - Tuesday and Thursday for grain; Friday for pork, butter and eggs.  There is also a monthly fair, third Friday each month, for cattle, sheep and horses.  There are four good Hotels, in which visitors can be accommodated at moderate charges.  In the Temperance Hall the Petty Sessions are held, and all public meetings.  The Derry Central Railway passes the town, the station being about ten minutes' walk from it.  Good shooting and fishing can be had in the neighbourhood.  The close season for trout fishing is from October 1st to last day of February, both inclusive.

Is a pleasant little seaport in the County Antrim, thirty-six miles N. from Belfast on the coast road between Larne and Ballycastle.  It is delightfully situated at the foot of a deep glen opening to the sea, surrounded by bold, romantic, and imposing scenery.  Glenarm River flows past on the north-west side, emptying itself into a bay of its name.  About fourteen miles distant is the village of Cushendall, and four miles further, still proceeding north, is the lovely village of Cushendun.  Glenarm Castle, the family seat of the Earl of Antrim, is a noble quadrangular pile, embellished with minarets, and surmounted by stately domes.  The demesne is very extensive and beautifully wooded, the grounds being laid out with exquisite taste.  Further up the glen is a walled enclosure called the Great Deerpark, containing over a thousand acres, in which about 100 deer are kept.  On the Barbican or Entrance Tower is a stone on which is carved the family arms, also the following inscription - "With the leave of God, this castle was built by Sir Randle McDonnell, Knight, Erle of Antrim, haveinge to his wife, Dame Aellis O'Nill, in the year of our Lord God, 1636," and below the arms the motto - "Deus est adjutor meus."  The water surrounding the coast is very clear and free from impurities, and there are many secluded and convenient spots for sea-bathing but whether from difficulty of access, or otherwise, Glenarm is not nearly so much resorted to by visitors of worship.  The Church of Ireland is situated between the sea road and the sea, with a small enclosed cemetery around.  This cemetery also contains the ruins of a Franciscan Monastery, which was founded in 1465, by the Bissets (a Scotch family), who formerly were the possessors of Glenarm and surrounding lands.  The last of the Bissets was Marjory, who married John More McDonnell, of Cantyre.  Glenarm is frequented by steam and sailing vessels from England and Scotland, which bring brick, coals, slates, etc., taking back whiteing, timber, iron ore, aluminious clay, lime, and limestone; of the latter large quantities are shipped by the Eglinton Chemical Company.  The whiteing mill belongs to the Earl of Antrim.  The Antrim Iron Ore Company ship considerable quantities of iron ore.  There are National Schools for the education of the young, also a Dispensary, and Petty Sessions Courts are held the first Monday of every month.  There are four fairs in the year - 26th January, 26th May, 30th August, and 29th October.  Population, 1,213

Glenavy is a very charming village, picturesquely situated about one mile and a half from Lough Neagh.  As the village is only seventeen miles by rail, and eleven by road from Belfast, it is a most suitable and convenient place for parties wishing to picnic on Ram's Island, or on the shores of Lough Neagh.  The Glenavy River is a favourite resort for anglers, the fishing there being remarkably good.  Glenavy is on a branch line from Lisburn to Antrim, there being five trains daily each way, and also direct communication between Dublin and Belfast.  The roads around being very good, level, and kept in good order, have great attractions for cyclists, many hundreds of whom pass through the village, in clubs or singly, during the cycling season.  There is a prosperous flock mill, the property of Mr. Hugh H. B. Watson, which employs a number of people, whilst others find work at the Lough Neagh Tweed Factory, in Crumlin, a distance of two miles.  There are also beetling engines, owned by Mr. James Lorimer, which do a large trade for several firms in Belfast, whilst the business of basket making is largely carried on by the peasants living around and about Lough Neagh.  There are various objects of interest near Glenavy, such as the ruins of the Church and Palalce (Palace) of Bishop Jeremy Taylor, also the remains of the beautiful stables built by the Earl of Conway about 1664; but all the buildings, including the Church and Palace, were demolished in the year 1761.  These ruins are to be found on the borders of Portmore Lake, within easy driving or walking distance of Glenavy.  The Crew Stone, where the Kings of Ulster were crowned; from this stone one of the finest and most extensive views in the country may be had on a clear day; the ruins of the Parish Church of Camlin, destroyed by the army of James II. in 1689; the Leap Waterfall at Glenconway, the residence of Mr. Samuel Sandys Briggs; the Parish Church of Glenavy, a handsome Elizabethan edifice situate on the Glenavy River.  During the year 1895, through the untiring efforts of the late incumbent, the Rev. Charles Watson, M.A., B.D., the interior of the Church has been thoroughly renovated and beautified; a chancel and organ chamber built, and beautiful stained-glass windows, presented by interested friends.  There is a large congregation connected with the church, the hours of service being half past eleven a.m., and half past six p.m. on Sundays.  There is a beautiful communion cup, presented by some officers of the army of William III. who were quartered in Glenavy.  This cup adorns the communion table on "Twelfth of July Sunday," when the Orangemen march to church wearing their colours.  There is an attractive Methodist Church, surrounded by handsome iron railings, built in the year 1892, and now entirely free of debt; there are two services on Sunday, at eleven a.m. and half-past six p.m.  A mile from the village is the Roman Catholic Chapel of St. Joseph, built on an elevation, from which it can be seen for miles around.  Population of Glenavy about 250

Is a picturesque little town, situate in the Parish of Lower Badoney, County Tyrone, about eight miles north of Omagh, and five miles east of Newtownstewart, both stations of the Great Northern Railway Company.  The station of the latter town is the one from which the goods and passenger traffic is carried on.  The town of Gortin is very ancient, and is composed of one continuous streets, with houses on both sides, and a bridge spanning the centre.  The town nestles at the foot of the Munterloney Mountains, which are famous for the number of small lakes with which they are studded and for the varied scenery.  In summer it is the favourite resort of the tourist, the angler, and sportsman.  Adjoining the town is the beautiful demesne and castle of the Cole-Hamilton family, which is at present unoccupied.  In the centre of the town is situate the Steam Corn and Saw Mills of Mr. W. J. Hamilton, where an enormous quantity of rough native and foreign timber is turned out daily.  Every description of wood turning, and also steam printing is carried on at the same establishment.  At the east end of the town is situated the Parochial Hall.  On a hill adjacent to the town is now being erected a new Roman Catholic Chapel at a coat of 4,000.  Mr. E. J. Toy, Derry, is the architect, and Mr. D. Finston, Ardanshine House, Brookboro, Co. Fermanagh, and Ballyshannon, Co. Donegal, is contractor.  In the centre of the town Mr. Wm. McCullagh, spirit merchant, has lately erected a new hall, known as "The Gortin Assembly Hall:" and Beltrim New Schools, have been erected under the patronage of Rev. T. J. Willoughby, rector of the parish.  Fairs are held on the first Wednesday of each month, at which there is always a good attendance of buyers, and at which there is always large quantities of pigs, cattle, horses and sheep, especially the latter, offered for sale.  A market is held every Wednesday for the sale of farm produce.  There is a Loan Fund Bank, and the Ulster Banking Company have an office in the town, at which they attend on fair and market days.  The population is 400.

Is the site of an old abbey founded for Cistercian monks by Affreca, wife of Sir John De Courcey, and daughter of Godred, King of the Isle of Man, A.D. 1193. It was destroyed by the army of O'Neill in the great rebellion of 1641, and was never afterwards repaired.  The ruins are now overgrown with ivy, which gives them a romantic appearance.  The naive of the abbey church and a portion of the choir and transcepts are still standing, but the cells, dormitories, and other buildings for the use of the household have fallen in, only enough remaining to trace out the compass of ground which the whole structure occupies.  The vicinity of these ruins is beautiful and picturesque.  The splendid demesne of the Montgomery family immediately adjoins them.  The place is in high favour with the citizens of Belfast, who frequently resort to this pleasant neighbourhood.

Is a pleasant little seaport in the County of Down, about thirteen miles from Belfast on the coast road between Bangor and Donaghadee.  It is delightfully situated at the entrance to Belfast Lough, the Copeland Islands lying nearly opposite.  The famous Brigs Reef lies also off the village.  The landlord is Major R. Percival Maxwell, D.L., who has a very fine mansion called Groomsport House.  Groomsport is the most important fishing station near Belfast, there being between thirty and forty fishermen entirely dependent on this industry alone.  There is a very safe harbour, and many yachtsmen are now keeping their yachts there in the summer.  The Royal National Lifeboat Institution have a first-class station here, and have recently constructed a new slip for launching purposes at a cost of several hundred pounds.  This now makes the Groomsport Station rank with the highest class.  The Board of Trade has also a rocket apparatus station here, and scarcely a winter ever passes without the lifeboat and rocket apparatus being called into service several times.  Groomsport is fast coming to the front as a seaside and health resort.  There is a Church of Ireland and Presbyterian Church.  The nearest railway is Bangor, but there is a good service of cars to and from Bangor and Donaghadee.  The first ship ever built in Ireland was built in Groomsport
