PORTADOWN           top

Portadown, a market town in the County Armagh, twenty five miles from Belfast, situated on the banks of the River 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 of traffic by lighters and barges from Belfast and towns adjoining the lake. 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 in the census of 1870, it was 8,000. The town stands on a hill, and is well cleansed and lighter, 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, and the buyers are numerous, and the highest market price is realized. The market on Saturday is for the sale of all kinds of farm produce, the trade in pork is very large, and a fair is held on the third Saturday in every month. The manufacture of linen and cambric is extensively carried on, there are four large weaving factories and a spinning mill, which give employment to a large number, and two large flour mills. The chief public buildings are the Town Hall which occupies a central position and contains an assembly room and a court where Petty Sessions are held, and several smaller rooms where committees meet and associations and clubs have their sittings ; the Bank of Ireland, a large and handsome structure built of Dundalk 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, and Victoria Hall. The Parish Church of Drumcree is situated about one mile from the town. In the town is St. Mark's Church, and about half a mile distant is Seagoe Church. The Wesleyan Methodist premises in Thomas Street, are handsome buildings, containing a chapel, several school rooms and class rooms. The Presbyterian Meeting Houses, three in number, are commodious and well appointed. The Roman Catholic Chapel in William Street, is a spacious edifice, and there is a second chapel in the Edenderry end of the town. Within the last few years a lease of land to the extent of twenty three acres has been 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 handsome pond contribute much to its appearance. In 1872 a public library and reading rooms were established, which open daily. There are over 2,000 vols. in the library, and the news room is well supplied with papers. Petty Sessions are held on the second and fourth Mondays in each month.

PORTAFERRY              top

Portaferry, is a thriving seaport and market town on the County of 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 is a good quay, where vessels of light burden can discharge their cargoes. There is a considerable trade in coal, timber, corn 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, the last Tuesday in each month. The places of worship are - the Parish Church of Ballyphillip, a neat structure ; a Presbyterian church ; two Methodist churches ; and a Roman Catholic chapel. The charitable institutions consist of a dispensary and four public schools, all under the National Board. Colonel Andrew Nugent, D.L., J.P., commanding the 2nd Dragoons (Scots Greys), is the proprietor of Portaferry, and has a fine mansion and demesne immediately 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 in 1871, 1,938 inhabitants. The town is much improved of late years, a Protestant Hall was built in 1870, and a handsome Coast Guard Station has just been finished at the south end of the town. Messrs. Norton & Co. run an excellent long car and also the mail car between Portaferry and Belfast.

PORTGLENONE             top

Portglenone, is a town of over 700 inhabitants, and is situated in the County of Antrim on the River Bann, about ten miles from Ballymena and thirty three from Belfast. It is a seat of the hand loom linen manufacture, 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 a remarkably good one for flax. There are three Presbyterian, one Church of Ireland, and one Roman Catholic, churches 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 church, school, and presbytery have been built within the past ten years, and cost upwards of 5,000. A new National School has also been recently built in connection with the Presbyterian congregation, at a cost of about 500. The Third Presbyterian Church has lately been repaired and added to, and a handsome round tower built by Rev. A. H. Beattie. Markets every Tuesday ; fairs first Tuesday of each month and second Tuesday of May. Flax markets every first and third Tuesday of the month, and grain market every Thursday during the season. A company has been formed and has obtained a Bill for the construction of a narrow guage railway from Ballymena through Gracehill, Ahoghill and Casheltown to Portglenone, and the works are being rapidly proceeded with. Petty Sessions are held on the first Thursday of the month. The town has a public bakery, established by a local company in 1873, and gas works now in operation upwards of 20 years, owned and managed by Mr. William Smyth. An agent of the Northern Bank, Ballymena, attends every first and third Tuesday of the month

PORTRUSH            top

Portrush, is a seaport and watering place in the North of Antrim, about six miles N.E. from Coleraine and seven from the world famed coast scenery, the Giants' Causeway. It has more than trebled its population during the last few years, owing to the opening up of the railway communication ; and is now one of the most fashionable watering places in the North of Ireland, and is much resorted to during the bathing season. There are many superior lodging houses and bathing lodges for the accommodation of visitors ; and owing to its temperate and tonic atmosphere, many respectable families have located themselves as permanent residents. There is steamboat communication with Glasgow twice a week, and fortnightly to Islay, Oban, etc., during the summer months, giving the tourists ample opportunity of visiting Highland scenery. There is also steam communication with Morecambe once a week and occasionally with Liverpool. Coleman's van leaves at 10 o'clock a.m. for the Causeway Hotel. Portrush possesses eight hotels. The permanent population is about 1,300, but during the bathing season it amounts to about 4,000.

PORTSTEWART        top

Portstewart, is a seaport and watering place in County Derry, four miles North from Coleraine, and ten from the celebrated Giants' Causeway ; very prettily and romantically situated at the foot of a branch of the great basaltic range of mountains, and commands an extensive view of the estuary of the Bann, the entrance into Lough Foyle, and the promontory of Downhill, with the peninsula of Innishowen in the distance. The air here is pure, the scenery grand and picturesque, and the facilities for bathing very great. There are public baths, lodging houses and a first rate hotel, the latter fitted up with every accommodation for families and visitors. In appearance the town resembles an English watering place, and is a favourite place of resort during the Summer, and even in the Winter months, having a dry, sandy soil, and being sheltered from easterly winds. The place is plentifully supplied with fish. The population in 1871 was 512.

Randalstown, is a market town in County Antrim, seventeen miles N.W. by W. from Belfast, two miles North from the nearest part of Lough Neagh. The Maine is crossed, at the entrance of the town, by a stone bridge of nine arches, whence it pursues its course to Lough Neagh, through Shane's Castle Park. This magnificent park extends southwards for upwards of five miles, through a richly wooded demesne on "Lough Neagh's banks," and is kindly thrown open by its indulgent and hospitable proprietor every Tuesday and Friday. On the banks of the Maine, adjoining the town, stand the beetling and power loom mills of Messrs. Webb, Brothers. Petty Sessions are held first Tuesday in each month. The Parish Church of Drummaul is situated in a commanding position close to the town. The rectorial tithes of the parish are lay impropriate, the property of the Marquis of Donegal, who has also the right of presentation - the vicarial tithes (now rent charge) belong to the vicar or imcumbent. There are also three Presbyterian churches, a Wesleyan Methodist church, a Roman Catholic chapel, a spacious Court House, two National Schools, and one established and maintained by the Right Hon. and Rev. Lord O'Neill, for the benefit of the children of his tenantry in the locality, and an infant school, capable of holding 150 children, erected by Miss Alexander, daughter of the late Bishop of Meath. There is a Dispensary for the district. A company has been formed for lighting the town with gas. The Northern Banking Company have erected a spacious and handsome Bank House for the transaction of business. There is an extensive weekly market every Wednesday, for flax, grain, pork, butter, meat, poultry, eggs, etc.; and on the last Wednesday in each month a fair is held for the sale of cattle, sheep, pigs, and other farm produce ; and in addition to these, there are two fairs in the year, on the 16th July and 1st November. The late Lord O'Neill built and fitted up a commodious and elegant hotel, an extensive walled in market square, shedded on all sides, containing flax stores, butchers' stalls, butter store, weigh bridge, etc.; with ample convenience for every commodity brought to market, and abundant accommodation for all attending it (also free of expense)

RATHFRILAND              top

Rathfriland, is a market town in County Down, twenty four miles S.S.W. from Belfast, situated between Newry and Downpatrick ; it stands on the acclivities of a hill, and consists of seven principal streets, which radiate downward from a tolerably spacious square towards the five roads which meet at its site. The summit of the hill, which commands an extensive view of the surrounding country, is crowned by the ruins of an old castle, anciently one of the fortified residences of the Magenises, Lords of Iveagh. The Market House is in the Square, in the upper part of which a Petty Sessions Court is held the first Friday in every month. The Parish Church of Drumgath is a small, neat edifice with a tower. There are three Presbyterian churches, and also places of worship for the Covenanters and Society of Friends, Methodists, and Roman Catholics. The charitable establishments are public schools for children of both sexes, and a dispensary. The markets are held on Wednesday ; the fairs are on the first Wednesday of every month.

ROSTREVOR               top

Rostrevor, is a beautiful watering place in the County Down. It is not quite two miles distant East from Warrenpoint, nor similarly situated as Warrenpoint, for Rostrevor is completely sheltered from the East winds by the mountains, and thus an advantageous place, in point of climate, for invalids, and particularly recommended for pulmonary disorders. The town is delightfully seated on a gentle declivity, which rises from a little cove of Carlingford Lough, and commands beautiful views of the woods, mountains, and waters of the Lough's basin. Mr. Inglis, in noticing Rostrevor, says it is, "one of the most beautiful spots in Ireland." The Woodside Hotel is beautifully situated on the main road between Warrenpoint, Rostrevor and Newcastle, and commands unrivalled views of mountain scenery, which are unsurpassed for grandeur by any in Ireland. The hotel is surrounded by its own ornamental grounds, flower gardens, lawns, etc., and commands views of Carlingford Lough and mountains on the one side, with the charming Slieve Ban mountain and wood on the other side. The Mourne Hotel, which has lately been erected, is beautifully furnished and fitted out with all modern improvements. In addition to its other departments it contains dining hall, drawing room, dormitories, billiard and reading rooms. There is also the Woodside Hotel, which is beautifully situated, and in which the visitor or the tourist will find every comfort. Connected with this hotel is a Skating Rink, which is said to be one of the finest in the kingdom. In addition to the above hotels there is also Sangster's Hotel, which is also very comfortably fitted up for the reception of visitors. About a quarter of a mile South West of the town stands a handsome monument to the memory of the late General Ross, who fell while leading his troops to victory at Bladensburg, in America. The trade is very little, except the extensive bleach greens belonging to the Messrs. Martin and Forrest, Brook Spinning Company. The Parish Church forms a conspicuous object to the quiet aspect of the place. There are also a Presbyterian Church and a Roman Catholic Chapel. Fairs - Monday before Shrove Tuesday, Easter Monday, Whit Tuesday, 1st August, 19th September, 1st November and 11th December. Norton and Co.'s long cars daily pass through Rostrevor, and a 'bus, belonging to the same firm, plies several times each day between the village and Warrenpoint. Population in 1871, 626.
