Keady is a small but flourishing town, situated S.S.E. of Armagh a distance of six Irish miles, and on the leading road to Castleblayney.  The River Callan, on which it is situated, winds through some lovely valleys, and is very picturesque.  The principal streets rise to a large summit, and a grand view can be obtained of the neighbourhood from them.  The manufacture of linen is carried on to a great extent in the neighbourhood, and a linen factory in the centre of the town has also been started.  During the past year railway accommodation has been promised by the passing of the Kingscourt, Keady, and Armagh railway scheme, as was also a scheme put forward by the Newry Light Railway promoters, each of which was passed by a committee of the House of Commons, and which is sure to prove a great advantage to the district.  A handsome Market House stands at the junction of the main thoroughfare, and is constructed of brick, on a freestone base, and has a clock tower and spire, which cost considerably over 1,000.  A handsome Monument stands opposite to the Market House, erected in Memory of William Kirk, M.P., who died 1871, and who was the principal mainspring of the industrial activity and social progress of Keady.  Keady has been well noted for its tailoring trade, and a large number of workers are engaged.  The places of worship are - the Church of Ireland, two Presbyterian Churches, one Missionary Hall, and one Roman Catholic Chapel.  It has been under the Towns' Improvement Act since 1862, and was lighted by gas in 1853.  The principal products are potatoes, oats, flax, turnips, and hay.  markets for oats, etc., are held on Minday, (Monday), Thursday, and Friday, and on Friday the market for all commodities is held.  The fair is held the second Friday of every month.  Population in 1891, 1,200

The flourishing town of Kilkeel is situated near the southern extremity of the County of Down, in the Barony of Mourne, and is half a mile distant from the open coast.  The town, which is composed of five streets - Newry Street, Greencastle Street, Quay Street, Bridge Street and Newcastle Street contains 1,452 inhabitants.  Generally, the houses are well built, and several handsome residences have lately been erected.  The sanitary state of the town is most satisfactory.  The religious edifices are - The Church of Ireland, two Presbyterian Churches, a Moravian Church, and a Roman Catholic Chapel.  In the town there is a branch of the Belfast Bank, the Workhouse of the Kilkeel Union, a Post Office, a Police Barrack, and three excellent hotels.  Petty Sessions are held on the last Tuesday of each month, the local magistrates being - Earl of Kilmorey, J.P., Mourne Park; Messrs. J. Q. Henry, The Abbey; James Walmsley, Ballykeel House; John Orr, Kilkeel; Thomas Bartley, Shannon Grove; and Alexander Gordon.  The shop keepers in the town are all courteous and energetic, and furnish all requisites of the best quality for family use.  A great number of vessels discharge coal at the pier, which has been of great advantage to the people of the district.  Kilkeel boasts of a large number of fishing luggers, and the hardy fishermen pursue their remunerative calling with praiseworthy perseverance.  About twelve minutes' walk from Kilkeel there is a splendid strand.  In the future this beautiful bay is likely to attract large numbers of health seekers.  Indeed, it would now be a favourable resort if suitable cottages were erected along the shore.  The scenery of the district is remarkably grand, and tourists' trips through it by coach are becoming increasingly popular.

The Town of Killeshandra is beautifully situated on a hill, composed of one street running north and south.  The Episcopal Church occupies a sire at the south end of the town.  Beside the church there is a handsome Martin Memorial Parochial Hall.  The Roman Catholic and Presbyterian Churches are situated about half a mile from the town.  In the neighbourhood is a splendid Co-operative Dairy using about 7,000 gallons of milk per day.  There is also a splendid saw mill, worked by steam.  Interesting to the antiquary is a very ancient old church, now in ruins, which was built in 1688, with the Hamilton crest displayed on the front portion.  The Masonic and the Orange orders are represented by two lodges.  The postal arrangements are good.

Gordon, J.P., D.L., Delamont, Killyleagh.  Close by is the remains of Scattrick Castle, levelled by Cromwell while on his march along the shore to Downpatrick.  The Parish Church, with its high tower, and situated upon a great eminence, is a fine building, and can be seen at a long distance.  There is also the Presbyterian Church, the minister of which was at one time the celebrated Rev. John Livingstone, one of the first five Presbyterian ministers that came to Ireland in the 17th century.

          "Killinchy!  Killinchy! how glorious the day,
          When thy Livingstone heard thee and hasted away
          From the land where the sons of the covenant stood,
          Signed the Charter of Freedom, and sealed it with blood."

Close at hand are very fine structures, the Unitarian Church, the Presbyterian Church, the Episcopal Church, and also the Reformed Presbyterian Church.  The population is about 1,100.  There are several other fine buildings in close proximity to the village, amongst them being the Masonic Hall.  There is also a National School in connection with the Presbyterian Church and the Church of Ireland

Killough (Cill Locha, the Church of the Lake), a clean, pretty, quaint little village, seaport and station on the Belfast and County Down Railway, 23 miles S.E. from Belfast. and 6 from Downpatrick.  With the exception of a fine square in the centre, it consists principally of a long, wide street, almost a mile in length, that curves in a semicircle round the harbour.  The square and greater part of this street are shaded with a double row of handsome sycamore trees of about thirty years' growth, in the summer season look charming, and is a delightful promenade on a hot day. At the southern end of the village is the spring from which the famous "Scordan Water" unceasingly flows.  It is said to be of the purest and most wholesome kind.  Viscount Bangor, the owner of the property, has, at considerable expense, had a large reservoir constructed to receive this constant flow of water, from which pipes are laid through the village, fountains conveniently placed, and connecting pipes into the principal houses, so that all have an unlimited supply of delicious spring water.  Few villages are so fortunate in this respect.  There is a good quay, built by Lord Bangor's predecessor.  The harbour is safe and commodious, and affords good anchorage and quayage for vessels of moderate draft.  A considerable trade is done in coal, lime, timber, grain, potatoes, agricultural produce, and general merchandise by steamers and sailing vessels from England, Scotland, and the Channel Islands, etc.  The fishermen catch quantities of herring and mackerel in the season, also cod, ling, haddock, fluke, whiting, and lobster. The water surrounding the coast is very clear and free from impurities.  There are many convenient spots for sea-bathing, in addition to the principal place at back of the quay, where there is a safe, level sandy beach, and a number of boxes available.  Of late years it has become a rising watering-place, and a favourite resort of Sunday school and other excursionists.  The quiet and peaceable inhabitants vie with each other in making the temporary home and visits of their patrons as pleasant and enjoyable as possible.  The principal hotel is the "Bangor Arms."  Here every attention is paid to visitors.  It is remarkably clean, and the tariff very moderate.  South of Killough - next St. John's Point - is the Castle Park -  tract of about nine acres of a fine, short, grassy sward above the rocks on the sea shore.  A visitor has thus lately described the park - "Before you the dazzling blue waters of the Irish sea stretching out to the sky, across the bay the towers of Ardglass looking over the hill, and in a clear day the misty blue hills of the Isle of Man are plainly visible.  Now and then you see the smoke of a steamer, and sometimes the herring fleet, sail after sail, passing the mouth of the bay.  At your feet the sea is breaking on the rocks; a cool breeze is always blowing; the grass is soft, and the sleepy sound of the sea is ever in the ear. Fresh briny smells blow in from the sea, and now and then a fragrance of hay or clover from the fields above.    From the flag-staff eminence a new and most beautiful scene opens up.  Down below lies the whole shining expanse of Dundrum Bay - lustrous reaches of fluctuous sea; beyond it, far in front, are the dark, towering shapes of Donard and the Mourne mountains.  You can make out Newcastle and the yellow sand of the golf links at their feet, and the streams and waterfalls on their slopes.  The eye wanders over hill and vale, wood and hedge-row, and the white farmhouses dotted everywhere."  Lord Bangor has had a splendid cycling track laid down here, where the popular annual sports of the Killough Cycling Club are held.  He gives all visitors free access to this park, which could not be surpassed as a safe and pleasant recreation ground, or a more ideal place for a day's sport.  Children and friends can spend an enjoyable and profitable day without any fears for their safety.  "No pleasanter resting place when mind and body are weary."  Plenty of boating can be had and the roads in the district are good and inviting for either walking, cycling, or driving.  There is an almshouse here, built out if the bequest of Mr. Charles Sheils.  He was a native of Killough, of humble parentage, became a successful Liverpool merchant, and left 90,000 for this purpose.  His tomb is in the churchyard, and only a short distance from the house in which he was born.

This is a delightfully situated seaport town, surrounded by rugged and picturesque scenery on the properties of Mr. H. G. Murray Stewart and Mr. R. Tyler Bustard, about fourteen miles from Donegal and fifty from Londonderry, of the whole of which first-named property Mr. Arthur Brooke, J.P., Whitehouse, Killybegs, is agent.  It has one of the finest harbours in Ireland, the largest ships of war being able to anchor with safety close to the town; also its land-locked position renders it the chief harbour of refuge on the north-west coast, and it is extensively used as such.  Killybegs is rapidly improving.  The railway from Donegal - three services each way daily, Sunday excepted - will undoubtedly make the town a favourite watering-place.  A new pier runs out about 300 feet at high water; rails extend from railway terminus to end of pier, so that vessels may load or discharge into or from railway waggons; all necessary appliances fitted on the pier.  As for bathing and boating it cannot be surpassed, the harbour being safe for sailing at nearly all seasons.  Sportsmen will find plenty of amusement in the shooting and fishing, widgeon and wild duck being plentiful in the winter season.  The town is exceptionally well built, and contains some handsome edifices, the most prominent of which are the Church of Ireland, Catholic Church, Murray Stewart Schools, and Niall Mor National School.  Within a mile from Killybegs are situated the beautiful house and demesne of Fintra, the residence of Mr. A. Parsons-Guy.  It lies at the foot of Crownaread, and has a lovely strand of a mile in length, from which the place derives its name.  Five and a half miles distant are the caves of Muckross, and ten miles distant the celebrated cliffs of Slieve League, which are said to be the finest in Europe, several of which have a sheer face down to the sea, and are upwards of 1,900 feet in height.  A lighthouse stands at the entrance to Killybegs Harbour, and another at St. John's Point, four miles distant, protects the outer coasts.  This is a station for H.M. cruisers.  Two mails are received daily, and two are despatched.  A fair is held on the 6th of each month; a weekly market every Friday; a Court of Petty Sessions second Monday in each month.  A flourishing branch of Ulster Bank, Limited, has been established here more than twenty years.  There are three capital hotels, any one of which visitors will find most comfortable.  Population about 800.  Celebrated for salmon, herring, mackrel, (mackerel) cod, ling, turbot, sole, and plaice fishing.  There is an extensive carpet factory at the west end of the town, now in full working order, lighted by electricity, which gives employment for 400 girls - a branch establishment of Messrs. A. Morton & Co., Darvel, Ayrshire, Scotland.  There is also an industrial school at West End, under the management of the Rev. J. J. O'Donnell, with accommodation for 200 boys.

A seaport, and formerly a market town and Parliamentary borough, in the County of Down about sixteen miles S.E. from Belfast, situated at the head of a creek on the west shore of Strangford Lough, on the road from Downpatrick to Belfast. There are two extensive linen yarn spinning mills, containing 40,000 spindles, and employing 1,500 hands.  The Hamiltons, created Lords Clandeboye, and subsequently Earls of Clanbrassil, formerly resided in an ancient castle at one extremity of the town.  It is now the residence of the Hamilton family, who, with the Marquis of Dufferin and Ava, own the town and estate contiguous.  The magistrates assemble in Petty Sessions monthly.  The church is a handsome cruciform structure, with a tower, surmounted by a spire of good proportions.  It was originally erected in 1640, but in 1812 was rebuilt, and has recently been much extended.  There are two Presbyterian churches, a Methodist chapel, a Roman Catholic chapel, and two national schools.  Sir Hans Sloan, the celebrated naturalist and physician, was born here on the 16th April, 1660, and the house in which he was born, in Back Street, was some years ago taken down and another erected in its stead.  The market was formerly held every Friday.  The Downpatrick branch of the Ulster Bank has an agency here on every Friday.  Fairs, 10th April and 11th October.  Shrigley Mills and the town contained, in 1869, 2,730 inhabitants. Shrigley Mills, the site of one of the flax spinning mills adjoining Killyleagh, has a population on 1,021; former proprietor, Mr. John Martin, J.P., now owned by a Limited Liability Company, under the title of John Martin, Limited.  There is attached to the mill an infant school and mixed school, under the National Board.  The income from house property alone at Shrigley Mill is upwards of a thousand pounds annually.  The town was erected by the late Mr. J. Martin, and the houses are all occupied by the workers of John Martin, Limited.  The mill, schools, and dwellings would well repay the inspection of visitors; they are, indeed, an ornament and credit to the neighbourhood.  Population, 1891, ?,835

Is a thriving town in the County of Londonderry, with a population of about 1,000 inhabitants, situate on the River Bann, between forty and fifty miles from Belfast, on the central road through the County of Londonderry, and on the property of the Worshipful Mercers' Company, of London.  Three markets are held each week - on Tuesday for grass-seed, Wednesday for sale of general produce, and on Thursday for oats and oatmeal.  The monthly fair is held on the second Wednesday of each month, and to meet the requirements of the district a second cattle market has been established on the fourth Wednesday of each month, which has proved very successful.  There is ample market accommodation and storage, which is the gift of the owners of the soil.  A Court of Petty Sessions is held on the first Monday of each month.  The Derry Central Railway Station adjoins the town.  The Mercers' Hotel has been rebuilt by the Mercers' Company.  It presents a fine appearance, no expense having been spared in its erection.  It also contains great accommodation, and has attracted a large number of visitors, both commercial men and sportsmen, the latter for the far-famed salmon and trout fishing of the Bann.

The Town of Kingscourt is situated in the South-East of County Cavan, and is fast gaining a place in the front rank as a commercial town.  Of late years many of the merchants have greatly enlarged their premises, and the main street now presents a striking contrast to what it was some years ago.  Its increasing prosperity is no doubt accounted for by its being in good communication with large centres, as it is but two hours' run on the Midland Great Western Railway to Dublin, and the new line from Keady and Armagh will connect it with the north; and it is universally anticipated that this little town has but began its prosperous career.  A fair is held once monthly, on first Tuesday of the month; markets, once weekly.  A short distance from the town are brickworks, which give employment to a good number of inhabitants and to those of the surrounding district.  the postal arrangements are good, there being two mails despatched daily.  The Northern and Hibernian Banks have both agencies, twice weekly, from Bailieboro and Navan respectively.  The chief attraction in the neighbourhood is the beautiful grounds and demesne leading to Cabra Castle; its beauty is much admired and appreciated by a large number of tourists in the summer months.  The nearest Presbyterian Church is Ervey, under three miles distant.

Places of Worship - Presbyterian - Erney, about three miles distant; Church of Ireland - Rev. Knox, rector; Roman Catholic - Rev. Joseph Flood, P.P.
Schools - No. 1, P. Brady, teacher; Cabra infant, Mrs. E. O'Connor and George Boyd, teachers
