A Little Bit of Ireland


SLATER'S  DIRECTORY OF IRELAND - 1846

BALLINA,

    p. 103

     A market and post town in the parish of Kilmoremoy, barony of Tyrawley, county of Mayo, 151 miles S.W. from Dublin, 20 N. from Castlebar, and 30 1/2 N. by E. from Westport, finely situated on the banks of the river Moy, which here separates the county of Mayo from that of Sligo. The river, which is crossed by two handsome stone bridges, is navigable from the sea about six miles distant, to within a mile and a half of the town. Not far from the town are the fine ruins of Roserk or Roserick Abbey, built by one of the Joices, a family of much consequence in England and Ireland in the fourteenth century. On the 26th August, 1798, this town was seized by the French under General Humbert, immediately after landing at Killala, where the rebels committed many atrocities, until the surrender of the French at Ballynamuck. Ballina is a thriving place, and improvements of some magnitude have been completed in new roads, buildings &c. while others are further contemplated. A quay, some time since, was constructed, about a mile down the river, and the cutting of a canal from it to communicate with

the town was commenced by government, but after expending 1,000, the work was abandoned, with however, a probability of its being resumed and ultimately accomplished. The trade in corn is considerable, and is the principal article of export, the salmon fishery is also of importance. There are extensive corn mills, two breweries, a foundry, two branch banking establishments, and the like number of principal inns-of the latter, the Royal Mail Hotel, in Knox-street, is an admirably conducted house. In a convenient court-house, general sessions are held in January and July, and petty sessions every Tuesday. A subscription news room is well supported in the town, and liberally supplied with the principal journals of the day and the best magazine periodicals.
     The places of worship are the parish church, and chapels for Roman Catholics, Baptists and Methodists. The church, which is situated in the suburb of Ardnaree, is a well-built but plain structure, with a tower and a spire. The Roman Catholic place of worship is the Cathedral Church of the See of Killala, and is a handsome

modern edifice, in the later English style, ornamented with minarets. It was completed in 1827 at the expense of more than 11,000. It is situated on the same side of the river as the church, and furnishes a great ornament to that locality. The country gaol, a dispensary, a fever hospital, and a union workhouse, are the other principal establishments. The workhouse has accommodations for twelve hundred inmates; in February, 1815, the number of recipients
was three hundred and fifty. The market, which is one of the best in the county, particularly for corn and horses, is held on Monday. Fairs May 12th, June 3d, and 12th, August 12th, and December 13th. The parish of Kilmoremoy contained, in 1811, 13,129 inhabitants, and the town of Ballina 5,313; the population of the village or suburb of Ardnaree is 2,482, which may, with propriety, be added to that of Ballina, when the population thereof will amount to nearly 8,000.
