         Is the capital of the County Tyrone, a distinction which it has enjoyed since the year 1768. It is situated 97 English miles N.N.W. from Dublin; 66 W. from Belfast; 34 S. from Londonderry. It is the principal inland station on the Irish North Western Railway, and also the terminus of the Dungannon and Omagh Junction, thus rendering it a place of considerable importance. The County Court house is a fine building with four Doric columns. The market day is Saturday in each week, and a monthly fair is held on the first Tuesday in each month. The population of Omagh at the last census was 3,448. The principal public buildings, institutions, and offices, are the Omagh District Lunatic Asylum, erected in 1853, at a cost of 40,000, military Barracks, County Court house, Jail and Infirmary; the Union Workhouse, Fever Hospital and Dispensary, the Parish church, two Presbyterian churches, Wesleyan Methodist church, Primitive Methodist church, Roman Catholic chapel, Loretto convent and Christian Brothers' school, the Omagh district Model School, Gas Works &c.

          A market town in County Armagh, twenty one miles S.W. by W. from Belfast, situated on the River Bann, over which is a stone bridge of five arches. The river, falling into Lough Neagh, forms the boundary between the County of Armagh and Derry, and loses itself in the sea below Coleraine - thus forming, in connexion with the Newry canal, a water communication between that place, and Newry, Belfast, Enniskillen &c. There is a new junction station of the Ulster Railway here, connecting the Derry, Dublin and Belfast lines. The ancient name of the place was Port-ne-doon, signifying the "port of the fortified eminence." In 1780 a general market was established by Mayor Obins and George Woodhouse, Esq., and of late years the bi-weekly sales of grain, hay and straw have greatly increased. The trade in other agricultural produce, and in pork and cattle, is also very large. The manufacturer of linen, lawn, and cambric and cotton weaving, is carried on extensively in the town and neighbourhood. The Ulster, Belfast, and Bank of Ireland have branches established here. There is a spinning mill in full working order, and steam flour mills. Petty Sessions are held on the second and fourth Mondays of each month. The Parish Church of Drumcree is a handsome and capacious edifice, with a tower and spire at the Eastern end. There are - a District Parochial Church, and churches for Presbyterian, Wesleyan, Primitive, and Jubilee Methodists respectively, and a chapel for Roman Catholics. A large Town Hall at the junction of High Street and Woodhouse Street affords good accommodation for the transaction of public business. In it the Court of Petty Sessions is held, a reading room, and a handsome assembly room. The market, which is on Saturday, is second to none in Ulster for the usual commodities. A flax market has also been recently established. Fairs are held on the third Saturday of each month, also on Easter Monday and Whit Monday. Population in 1861, 5,524.

          Is a thriving seaport and market town in 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 burthen 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 every third Thursday. The places of worship are - the Parish Church of Ballyphilip, a neat structure, a Presbyterian church, Wesleyan and Primitive Methodist churches, and a Roman Catholic chapel. The charitable institutions consist of a dispensary and two public schools - one endowed, the other under the National Board. Andrew Nugent, Esq., the proprietor of Portaferry, 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 in 1861, 1,960 inhabitants.

          Is a seaport and watering place in North of Antrim, about six miles N.E. from Coleraine, and seven from the world-famed coast scenery, the Giants' Causeway. The place has more than trebled its population during the last seven tears, owing to the opening up of railway communication. It 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 respected families have located themselves as permanent residents. There is steamboat communication with Glasgow twice a week, and fortnightly to Islay, Oban, &c., giving the tourist ample opportunity of visiting Highland scenery. Portrush possesses two excellent hotels - the Antrim Arms (Mr. Brown's), and Portrush Hotel (Mr. Coleman's). Both are excellent in arrangement and moderate in charges. The population is now 1,300.

Post Office - Miss Thompson, postmistress. Letters arrive from all parts every morning at 9, and every evening at 5 o'clock, and are despatched at 8-15 a.m., and 3-35 p.m.

          Is a seaport and watering place in County Derry, four miles North from Coleraine, and ten from the celebrated Giant's 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 Ennishowen 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 1861 was upwards of 800.

          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 to 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 corn, flax beetling and power loom mills of Messrs. Webb, Brothers. Petty sessions are held first Tuesday of 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 Donegall, who has also the right of presentation - the vicarial tithes (now rent charge) belong to the vicar or incumbent. There is also three Presbyterian churches, a Wesleyan Methodist church, a Roman Catholic chapel, a spacious Court house, a National School, and one established and maintained by the Rev. Wm. O'Neill, for the benefit of the children of his tenantry in the locality, under the superintendence of Mr. and Mrs. Coombs; and an infant school, capable of holding 150 children, erected by Miss Alexander (daughter of the late Bishop of Meath), under the superintendence of Miss Wallace. 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, which will be opened in a short time for the transaction of business. There is an extensive weekly market every Wednesday, for flax, grain, pork, butter, meat, poultry, eggs &c.; and on third Wednesday in each month a great general market for the sale of cattle, sheep, pigs, and other farm produce. There are two fairs held here 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, weighbridge &c., with ample convenience for every commodity brought to market, and abundant accommodation for all attending it (also free of expense). An agent from the Northern Banking Company attends at the O'Neill Arms Hotel on each market day. Randalstown, according to census of 1851, contains about 1,050 inhabitants.

          Is a beautiful watering place, in the County Down. It is not quite two miles distant East from Warrenpoint, not similarly situated as Warrenpoint, for Rostrevor is completely sheltered from the East winds by the mountains, and thus as 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 Lough Carlingford, 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." 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 on his troops to victory at Bladensburg, in America. The trade is very little, except the extensive bleach green belonging to the Messrs. Martin, and Forest 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.
