BALLYMENA             top

Ballymena, is a stirring, business, and thronged market inland town, in the County of Antrim - twenty one miles from Belfast - pleasantly situates two miles above the confluence of the Braid and the main waters, and on the high road from Belfast to Coleraine and Londonderry. Large quantities of linen cloth are manufactured in the neighbourhood, and brought to the Ballymena bleach greens, of which there are many in the vicinity of the town, where the water is abundant and pure. It holds the highest position as a linen market in the United Kingdom. General Sessions of the Peace are held four times a year, and Petty Sessions every fortnight. There is a Town Hall, a Court House, a large Protestant Hall, and commodious hotels. There are branches of the Belfast Banking Company, the Northern Banking Company, the Ulster banking Company, and the Provincial Bank of Ireland. There are also a News room, a Protestant Society, and a Young Men's Mutual Improvement Association. There are two local newspapers - Ballymena Observer, established in 1855, and the Ballymena Advertiser - both published on Saturday. The parish church (almost totally destroyed by fire towards the close of 1879, but laudable efforts to restore which are now being made), is beautifully situated within the demesne of Lord Waveney, at the head of Castle Street, was completed and opened for Divine service in 1855. Every window in the edifice was of richly stained glass. The total cost of the Church was about 5,000, the whole of which sum, except 1,500, was provided by the then Colonel Adair, now Lord Waveney, the Lord of the soil. It is called the Church of St. Patrick, and was universally regarded as a model of architectural taste. In connection with this church is a new Parochial School House, which cost 1,500; and a Diocesan School House was established in 1827. There are five Presbyterian churches, a Roman Catholic Chapel, one Methodist, and a Baptist Meeting House. A local Linen Company was established in 1864, and an extensive Yarn spinning factory has been erected in Bridge Street. The capital invested in this concern is 50,000. There are three weekly markets - namely, on Tuesday, for pork and butter ; on Wednesday, for grain ; but principally one is on Saturday, and is a large linen market. Fairs, 26th July and 21st October. Population in 1861, 6,774, and in 1871, 7,931

BALLYMONEY                top

Ballymoney, a market town and parish in the County of Antrim, seated on a small tributary of the Bann. The town lies over an area extending from Milltown on the Rasharkin Road, to Rodenfoot. It is the capital of the two baronies of Dunluce, and the largest seat of their population and trade. The linen manufacture prevails in the neighbourhood. Branches of the Belfast Bank and of the Ulster Bank are established here. General Sessions of the Peace are held quarterly in each year ; Petty Sessions first and third Monday in every month. The Court House is in Charlotte Street. The Church was erected in 1782, near the site of an ancient church, of which some fragments still remain. The other places of worship are for Presbyterian, Roman Catholics, Unitarians, Covenanters, and Methodists. The trustees of Erasmus Smith's Fund established a school in 1813. There is a Model Agricultural School for the training of young men to agricultural pursuits. A large market is held on the first and third Thursdays in each month, and a weekly market on Thursday. Fairs - May 6th, July 10th, and October 6th. Population in 1861, 2,603 ; in 1871, 2,930. In 1867 a new Town Hall was erected by public subscription. The building comprises Town Commissioners' Offices, Newsroom, Library, and Large Assembly Hall. In 1868 the Church was nearly rebuilt, and now presents a fine front. The tower is surmounted by a handsome spire. There is no linen market now, such trade being confined to drapers. The markets are supplied largely in the season with flax, pork, oats, etc., etc.

BALLYSHANNON                  top

Ballyshannon, is a market town and seaport (formerly a Parliamentary borough) in the County of Donegal. The harbour looks right through the centre of the bay's entrance into the open Atlantic. Immediately above the head of the harbour a large body of the Erne water falls tumultuously over a ridge of rocks sixteen feet above the level of the ordinary tides, and forms a cataract beautiful and interesting. This is deemed one of the finest, if not the finest, salmon leap in all Ireland. About 75 tons of salmon are taken annually, and so good is the eel fishery that upwards of ten tons have been taken in one night at one weir. Nearly five hundred yards above the fall a handsome stone bridge, of fourteen arches, connects the two sections of the town. The fishing commences about the middle of April, and continues till the latter end of August. The Sessions and Market House constitute one building. There is also two banks, the Belfast and the Provincial, the Belfast, a newly erected building surmounted by a clock tower, cost 4,000 ; a Union Workhouse, a Dispensary, Public Schools, and a Barrack - the last named was generally occupied by infantry, but is not used at present. The Parish Church, a very neat structure, surmounts the summit of a hill on the West side of the town. Presbyterian and Wesleyan Methodists have churches, and within the parishes to which the town belongs are other places of worship for various religious denominations. There are two Roman Catholic Chapels. The market, a good one for grain, besides the usual commodities, is held on Saturday. There is also a market on Thursday for flax and pork during the season. The fairs are held on the second day of every month, except 18th September. Population in 1871, 2,958.

BALLYWALTER                top

Ballywalter, is a neat, clean and thriving little post and seaport town on the east coast of County Down, about six Irish miles distant, in a southerly direction, from Donaghadee, eight from Newtownards, and sixteen from Belfast. It contains nearly 1,000 inhabitants, and is situated within a parish of the same name, otherwise called Whitechurch and anciently Templefyn. Except that it is intersected at right angles by a few houses near its centre, it consists almost entirely of a single long wide street running parallel with the sea, and having in view the Isle of Man, the Mull of Galloway, and the south-west coast of Scotland. The houses are good, remarkable for cleanliness, and for neat, well paved sidepaths, kerbed with granite, except at its Northern end, which requires improvement. It is also remarkable for its beautiful strand - one of the finest along the entire coast - and for the salubrity of its air, and the orderly, peaceable disposition of its inhabitants, and, as proof, has neither doctor nor policeman. It has a good tidal harbour and quay, got up chiefly through the energy of its inhabitants, headed by the late highly respected Andrew Mulholland, Esq., father of the member for Downpatrick ; and there is a fair coasting trade in coals, limestone, agricultural produce, etc., which it is hoped will be largely increased by the re-opening of the extensive slate quarries adjacent to the town, under the direction of those enterprising gentlemen, Messrs. Ritchie and Jackson. The town and adjoining lands are the joint property of Captain J. D. Hamill Stewart, representative of the Hamill family, whose ancient seat, Ballyatwood House, is about half a mile distant, and of John Mulholland, Esq., M.P., whose beautiful mansion and demesne are close to its southern extremity. The only public buildings worthy of notice are the Lifeboat House, and two very handsome school houses, now under the National Board, built at the sole expense of the late Mr. & Mrs. Mulholland. There is also a very pretty little parish church, and close to it is the residence of the Rev. J. O'Reilly Blackwood, rector of the parish. Besides, there are two Presbyterian Churches - the one having for its minister the Rev. Dr. Magill, and the other the Rev. John Rogers. The only resident landed proprietors are John Mulholland, Esq., D.L., M.P., Ballywalter Park, and the representative of the late John Reid Allen, Esq., J.P., who occasionally resides in Dunover House, within the parish.

BANGOR                      top

Bangor, a seaport town in the County of Down, ten miles from Belfast. The town is very ancient. It is said the first stone and lime house built in Ireland was built in Bangor. Close to the Episcopal Church is to be seen part of the old Abbey walls destroyed by the Danes in 821.  (They are still there, with a plaque, which I will go and read someday and put here, funnily enough I pass by them at least twice a week) The town has greatly improved within the last few years ; the harbour is good and commodious ; the pier on which a sum of 5,000 has been lately expended by the proprietor R. E. Ward, Esq., (The Pier and the Seafront of Bangor is currently a mess, there is no beach left, no pier which can be accessed by the public and unless you own a boat, the seafront is strictly for drunks) adding very considerably to the accommodation of the Port. There is also a steamboat wharf, and fine beach (Ha!) well adapted for bathing. The shore on all sides of the bay is clad with houses and villas, for the accommodation of parties resorting to this favourite bathing shore. Steamers ply between Belfast and Bangor several times daily during the summer season. The principal hotels - "The Royal"  (Still there) is in a most agreeable position facing the sea, commanding beautiful views of the Lough and of the County Antrim on the other side ; "The Imperial" (Still there but no longer a Hotel, a local watering hole) in Main Street, which is a very comfortable, and convenient to the train. These conveniences and attractions, together with hot and cold baths, render this one of the most agreeable localities for the Summer season. The vicinity is enriched with several elegant seats. R. E. Ward, Esq., D.L., J.P., part proprietor of the town, has a splendid new castle in the Elizabethan style of architecture. (It is now the Town Hall at Castle Park, Bangor) The castle is surrounded by an extensive demesne, tastefully planted, and is contiguous to the town ; and the seat of Earl Dufferin is within two miles of the town. (On the main Belfast to Bangor Road, right hand side, Dufferin and Clandeboye Estate, has a beautiful little Chapel on the grounds, my first child was baptised there) A Court of Petty Sessions is held by the magistrates of the county on the first and third Wednesday of each month, at twelve o'clock noon. The Episcopal Church is a beautiful edifice, with a lofty spire. (Where I was married) There are two Presbyterian Churches. The Methodists have one place of worship. There is also a Roman Catholic Chapel, and Orange and Templar's Halls. A parochial school, an infant school, and a dispensary are the established charities. Fairs - January 12 May, 1 August, 1st & 22nd November. Population in 1861, 2,531 ; in 1871, 2,560. The Town Improvement Act for Ireland (1854) has been adopted, and Commissioners have been elected who have had public pumps erected in the streets and the town lighted with gas, etc., etc.

Post Office, Main Street - John Mathews, postmaster (Still in the same place) Letters from Dublin, Belfast, Scotland, and North of England arrive at 8.10 a.m. and 3.45 p.m., and are despatched at 10.50 a.m. and 5.50 p.m.
