Is a prosperous market town in the County Armagh, twenty-five miles from Belfast, situated on the banks of the Bann.  It is an important railway junction.  The lines of the Great Northern Railway branch off from it to Dublin, Derry, and Armagh, and it is in direct railway communication with Belfast.  The Newry Canal, which joins the Bann about a mile from the town, opens a water communication from Carlingford Lough, and the river itself being navigable all the way to Lough Neagh, affords a ready means for lighters and barges from Belfast and the towns adjoining the Lough.  The ancient name of the town was Port-ne-Doon, or the Port of the Fortified Eminence.  It has increased rapidly within the last half century, the population in 1816 being only 600, while it is now estimated at 10,000.  The town is rapidly increasing, several new streets having been opened within the last year, and new houses are being built in every available situation.  The town stands on a rising ground, and is well cleansed and lighted;  the footpaths are flagged, the houses are of modern construction, and the chief streets are of imposing appearance.  Two markets are held in the week - one on Wednesday for the sale of hay, straw, and other farm produce.  In the season a very large quantity of grass seed is brought to this market, the buyers are numerous, and the highest market prices are realised.  The market on Saturday is for the sale of all kinds of farm produce; the trade in pork is very large, and a horse and cattle fair is held on the third Saturday in every month.  The manufacture of linen and cambric is extensively carried on.  There are nine large weaving factories and a spinning mill, which gives employment to many people; one large flour mill, several hemstitching factories, a shirt factory, and two peat moss litter depots, one in the Town and the other at Derrylard.  The chief public buildings are the Bank of Ireland, a large and handsome structure, built of Newry granite, three storeys high; the Belfast Bank, and the Ulster Bank; Carleton Street School, erected in 1870, where Sabbath schools in connection with St. Mark's Church are held; the Orange Hall, opened in 1875; the Young Men's Institute, the Salvation Army Barracks, the Victoria Hall, and the Fever Hospital.  In 1890 the Town Commissioners erected in Edward Street a handsome and commodious Town Hall at a cost of about £2,500.  A new Post Office was erected in 1896 on a commanding site in Bridge Street.  The Parish Church of Drumcree is situated about one mile from the town.  In the town is Portadown Parish Church (St. Mark's), and about a half a mile distant is Seagoe Parish Church.  The Wesleyan Church premises in Thomas Street are handsome buildings, containing a church, several school rooms, and class rooms.  A new Wesleyan Church was opened in Edenderry in February, 1891.  The Presbyterian Churches - two in number - are commodious and well appointed; the Roman Catholic Place of Worship in the Edenderry end of the town.  The Working Men's Union Defence Club Association has reading and recreation rooms in the Orange Hall, Carleton Street.  St. Patrick's Hall, a handsome building, containing a large Assembly Hall, and the Catholic Young Men's Reading and Recreation Rooms, is in Thomas Street, where a Masonic Hall has also been erected.  A lease of land to the extent of twenty-three acres was some years ago obtained from his Grace the Duke of Manchester for a public park.  It has been tastefully laid out in walks, and planted with evergreens and trees of various kinds, while a river flowing through the centre and a pond contribute much to its appearance.  The park was taken over by the Town Commissioners on the 1st of November, 1894.  A new road has been constructed alongside and partly through the park, which has proved a great convenience to the public.  In 1872 a public library and reading room were established, which are open daily.  There are over 2,000 volumes in the library, and the newsroom is well supplied with newspapers.  Petty Sessions are held on the second and fourth Mondays in each month.  The "Portadown News" is the local newspaper for the district.

Young, J., M.A., printer and stationer, proprietor of "Portadown News"


Is a thriving little seaport and market town in County Down, twenty-three miles S.E. by S. from Belfast, situated on the Eastern shore of the strait to the sea that forms the entrance to Strangford Lough.  From the strength of the current the name "Strong-ford," and hence by corruption, Strangford is derived.  At Portaferry there is a good quay, where vessels of light burthen can discharge their cargoes.  A considerable trade is done in coal, timber, corn, potatoes, and agricultural produce.  The herring fishery is carried on from the month of June to September inclusive.  The Market-house is a commodious building, in which the magistrates hold Petty Sessions on the last Tuesday in each month.  The places of worship are - The Church of Ireland, Ballyphillip, a neat structure; a Presbyterian Church, one Methodist Church, and a Roman Catholic Chapel.  The public institutions consist of a dispensary and three public schools, all under the National Board.  Lieutenant-General Andrew Nugent, D.L., J.P., is the proprietor of Portaferry, and has a fine mansion and demesne contiguous to the town.  The market is held on Saturday, and the fairs on the 31st July and 12th December, and the second Tuesday monthly.  The town contained, by the census of 1891, 1,708 inhabitants. A Protestant Hall was built in 1870, and these is a handsome coastguard station at the south end of the town.  The Station Cab Company run the mail car between Portaferry and Belfast

Is a beautiful little village lying at the mouth of the River Bush, at the right of which is the picturesque seat of Lord Macnaghten, known as Runkerry Castle, while on the left stands prominent on the coast the residence of Mr. R. M. Douglas, and on the east the eye stretches as far as Knocklayd, the intervening county being diversified with pastures green and well laid out cultivated farms and homesteads.  As a quiet pleasure resort, Portballintrae can compare favourably with its northern rivals, and its inhabitants are not slow in looking after the comforts of visitors, additional new dwelling houses having been erected during the past season.  Every facility is afforded to anglers in the way of fishing, the River Bush, which is famed for its salmon and trout, being within a few minutes walk of the residences.  The village is easily reached by way of the Giants' Causeway Electric Tramway, and is only about twenty minutes walk along a beautiful road to Bushmills.

Is situated in the County Antrim, on the River Bann, about nine miles from Ballymena and thirty-three from Belfast.  Is it the seat of the handloom linen works, and a considerable trade is carried on in the manufacture of bricks from the peculiar white clay found on the banks of the river.  The surrounding district produces cereal crops in great abundance, and is remarkably suitable for flax.  There are three Presbyterian Churches, one Church of Ireland, and one Roman Catholic Chapel in the town.  The first Presbyterian Church was rebuilt in 1871 by the Rev. John Houston, minister, at a cost of £3,000.  The Roman Catholic Chapel , School, and Presbytery cost upwards of £5,000.  A new National School has been built in connection with the Presbyterian Congregations at a cost of about £500.  The Third Presbyterian Church has been repaired and added to, and a handsome round tower built by Rev. A. H. Beattie, and has this year again been reseated in the latest design of pitch pine pews, the walls beautifully coloured, and the pulpit remodelled.  Markets every Tuesday; Grain Market every Thursday during the season.  Petty Sessions are held on the first Thursday of every month.  The town has one public bakery.  An agent of the Northern Bank, Ballymena, attends every first and third Tuesday of the month.  Valuable salmon fisheries are carried on by J. S. Alexander, Esq., D.L., which give a number of men constant employment during the summer months.  There are also a number of gentlemen who spend their holidays here for the purpose of fishing, which always give good sport on this part of the beautiful river.  There is some very pretty scenery in the neighbourhood.  Population in 1891, 577

Until recent years Portrush, or "Port Rosse," as it is called by Dr. Todd, situate in the North of Antrim, about six miles North-East from Coleraine, and seven from the far-famed Giant's Causeway, was but a small fishing village.  Its popularity as a watering place and the charm and attractiveness of its surrounding scenery has, however, of late brought it great repute, and been the means of increasing its population considerably.  Year after year handsome and substantial buildings are replacing the rude dwellings which hitherto sheltered the hardy fishermen, and splendid hotels, the largest being the new Golf and Hydropathic, affording every comfort and accommodation to the weary invalid or those "on pleasure bent," have been erected in various parts of the town.  Nothing, perhaps, has been more beneficial to Portrush than the opening up of railway and steam communication, as by this means pleasure seekers from all parts of the world have been enabled to enjoy a holiday at this "Queen of Watering Places," pay a visit to the Giant's Causeway, an object of admiration and bewilderment to all who gaze on its curious formation, or recruit their health while promenading on Ramore Hill, or the beautiful yellow strand stretching for miles along the shore.  The great influx of visitors during the summer months of the past few years has been the means of stirring up the inhabitants to a sense of the importance of making the town as healthful and attractive as possible, and providing sources of amusement during the holiday season.  An Improvement Committee, consisting of members of the Urban Council, whose services were gratuitously rendered, has contributed not a little to this end, and it is to be hoped this useful body will continue to exert themselves in the way of providing still further sources of amusement during the coming season.  In order to encourage the committee, and at the same time promote the prosperity of the town, the Earl of Antrim, lord of the soil, has generously granted a handsome annual subscription to the funds, and the Belfast and Northern Counties Railway has followed his good example, provided the inhabitants continue to raise an equal sum.  We understand the inhabitants have qualified for the receipt of the donations.  As the result of this enterprise, there is good reason to believe that ere long Portrush will enjoy all the attractions and conveniences of the most fashionable English watering places.  A thorough system of drainage, at a cost somewhat under £3,000, has been completed.  The liberal patronage of Portrush, as a health resort, has encouraged the inhabitants to improve and extend the accommodation, and a large number of fashionable villa residences have been erected at Mount Royal and other points, the latest addition being a very substantial and artistic block called Breezemount Terrace.  The Northern Counties Railway Company have erected a new station, at an estimated cost of about £10,000.  A handsome new Methodist Church, erected as a memorial to the late Dr. Adam Clarke, has been completed.  There are excellent lending libraries in connection with the Episcopal and Presbyterian Churches, and a branch of the Girl's Friendly Society has been established.  Coal and Clothing Clubs for the benefit of the poor of the town and surrounding districts have been established in connection with the Episcopal and Presbyterian Churches.  The trip to the Causeway has been rendered both interesting and enjoyable, from the fact that visitors are conveyed by means of the first Electric Tramway in the United Kingdom.  The latest additions to the attraction and health giving recreations of the town is the establishment of a Golf Club, under the distinguished presidency of Lord Antrim, which has attained a large membership.  In addition to the annual tournament and grand championship competition for cups and other prizes, there are now monthly competitions both winter and summer, and the golf links are regarded as one of the best in Ireland.  The popularity of the gamer and the health giving exercise which it affords to both ladies and gentlemen, has made the town almost as attractive as a winter resort, as its salubrity, excellent sea bathing, and picturesque scenery has spread its fame as the Brighton of Ireland during the summer season.  Steamers call at the port weekly from Glasgow and Liverpool.  The bathing accommodation is excellent, and there is a commodious bath house on the beach, under the same management as the Northern Counties Hotel.  It may be added that bathing is safe at all times of the day and in all conditions of the tide; but as a guarantee against accidents a man is always in attendance with life saving apparatus.  To perpetuate the name of the Dr. J. E. Kelly, who was the esteemed rector of Portrush, a fine block of school buildings - "The Kelly Memorial School" - have been erected to his memory.  With regard to the hotels and the accommodation which they afford it is only necessary to say that they are numerous, comfortable, and convenient.  The permanent population is about 1,800, but during the bathing season it increases to about 6,000

The little village of Portstewart is situate on the sea shore, midway between Portrush and Coleraine.  Historically or commercially it has no pretensions, and cannot lay claim to even a special ruin or weekly market.  Notwithstanding, the long line of comfortable and substantial dwelling houses, which afford a charming outlook to the sea, would put to shame those in centres of great commercial industry and progress.  The village, it appears, takes its name from a Lieutenant Stewart, who was the first known owner of the estate on which it stands.  It is recorded that four little sod cottages, with their gables to the sea, were built by this gentleman on the site now occupied by the residence of Mr. James A. Lyle, the Post-Office, and Bath Cottage, and these formed the commencement of what at present is one of the most charming, salubrious, and popular of Northern health resorts.  The first tenants of the cottages, it is said, were four fishermen, whom Mr. Stewart brought with him from Innishowen, and furnished with a boat and lines to enable them to follow their usual avocation, the rent and hire of the boats and lines being fixed at a fish each day, when they were caught, and a day's cutting of turf annually in Roselick Bog.  Then, as now, Portstewart belonged to the Cromore estate. After the death of Mr. Stewart, the property passed to a Mr. Stafford, and after him to Mr. Cromie, in whose family it still remains, the present owner being Mrs. Cromie, a lady who has done much to promote the happiness and welfare of her tenantry.  It is as a health resort that Portstewart justly claims the attention of the wealthy Prince or lowly peasant.  In this respect it has few equals, and its quiet and peaceable inhabitants vie with each other in making the temporary home and visits of their patrons as pleasant and as enjoyable as possible.  Shut out by nature's bulwarks from the chilly north and withering east winds, visitors can bask in the sunshine during the summer and autumn months among the rocky cliffs, and drink in the pure ozone from the sea, or bathe their languid limbs in its briny waters, which roll up almost to the very doors.  To meet the requirements of increasing patronage the owners of houses in the village have within recent years made great improvements, both externally and internally, and the granting of perpetuity leases by the landlady has given a remarkable impetus to the building trade, which, it is believed, will result in the addition of numerous villa residences on a scale even more complete and artistic than any hitherto erected.  In addition to the many private houses let for the accommodation of visitors the village is supplied with two commodious hotels, capable of affording comfortable quarters to a large number of patrons.  There are also public baths, which are under the experienced and efficient management of Mr. McIlreavy.  A very handsome terrace of new houses, called "Victoria Terrace," in honour of her Majesty's Jubilee, has been built by Mr. S. R. Henry.  Several of the public buildings are worthy of a passing notice.  Prominent amongst these is the fine old Castle, standing on a projecting rock rising one hundred feet above the level of the sea.  An addition was put to it by Mr. Henry O'Hara, about fifty years ago, and is at present in the occupation of Mrs. Cromie.  The Church of Ireland, Clarke Memorial (Methodist), Presbyterian Church, Cromore House, the residence of Mr. R. A. C. Montagu, and Carrig-na-Cule, a handsome and extensive block of building, erected last season at north end of village, which is being run on popular lines as a private hotel or boarding house, are among the principal local buildings.  A new harbour and pier has been completed some ten years ago, at a cost of £4,000, of which the Board of Works granted £3,000.  Mrs. Cromie, proprietress of the estate, contributed £500, and the balance was raised, by public subscription.  Like many similar works, the advantage gained is hardly commensurate with the expenditure, as the accommodation is very inadequate.  In stormy weather the fishermen can only enter the harbour with difficulty, and further improvements are at present being carried out in order to provide against this.  Although Portstewart cannot boast of richness in old ruins, it has been the home of those who wielded a mighty influence among men, and secured for themselves a name that will live in the hearts and homes of the people for generations to come.  Amongst these are the names of Dr. Adam Clarke [to whose memory a handsome Memorial (Methodist) Church, capable of seating two hundred persons, has been erected] and Dr. Charles Lever, the talented novelist.  The village is connected with the Portrush branch of the Belfast and Northern Counties Railway by a steam tramway, which has lately been acquired by this Company, so that visitors have no difficulty in reaching it by rail, and we have no doubt when it becomes more widely known it will become more liberally patronised than it has been in the past.  Population in 1891, 1,000.  In order to attract visitors a golf club was established in 1895, which, no doubt, has added to the popularity of the town.  A much felt want in the way of a public hall has now been erected at the cost of £700, towards which Mrs. Cromie subscribed the handsome sum of £200.  There is in connection with this building reading rooms, recreation rooms, and coffee rooms.

Poyntzpass is situated eight miles north of Newry and four miles from Tandragee.  It occupies a position on the borders of Armagh and Down, a small part of the town being in the latter county.  It is a station on the Great Northern Railway, and there are quays on the canal, where lighters discharge coal brought from Newry.  There is a food cattle fair on the first Saturday in each month, for the accommodation of buyers, at which the railway company have lately made several improvements, which greatly facilitate the enrailing of beasts.  A market is held every Friday for fowl, butter, and eggs.  Poyntzpass was anciently called Fenwick Pass, and was one of the four "passes" across the morasses, which at all other places were impassable in the valley between Newry and Gilford, through which now runs side by side the Newry Canal and the Great Northern Railway.  Each of these "passes" was formerly protected by a castle, the remains of which have been long since removed.  A short distance to the east of Poyntzpass are portions of remarkable earthworks known as the "Glen of the Black Pig" or the "Dane's Cart," but which may more correctly be termed the Great Wall of Ulidia or Ulster, which was formed in A.D. 352 by the Ulidians or Ulstermen after their defeat and the destruction of the palace of their kings at Emmania or Navan, near the city of Armagh, by the Three Collas.  This "wall" can be traced from Lisnagade on the north of Scarva to Meigh, near Jonesborough, and is a most remarkable erection.  The Parish Church is a neat, modern building, which was enlarged and improved in 1893.  It stands on a gentle elevation at the south end of the town.  The present rector of the parish is Rev. W. F. Johnson, M.A.
