The early records available tell that Portrush was a seasonal location for Flint hunters and fishing. It developed as a fishing village. Earlier it was called Portruis (Cuan-Ard-Corran in Irish) which means “Point of the High Corner” – no doubt a reference to the high outcrop of basalt, the remains of which are now called Ramore head. It was the location of the O’Corrs castle and the 13th century abbey and close by are the impressive remains of the Dunluce Castle built originally by the clan Macquillan in the 14th century, later rebuilt by the Macdonnells of the Scottish Isles.

Portrush (from IrishPort Rois, meaning ‘port of the promontory‘)[3] is a small seaside resort town on the north coast of County AntrimNorthern Ireland. It neighbours the resort of Portstewart. The main part of the old town, including the railway station as well as most hotels, restaurants and bars, is built on a 1 mile (1.6 km)–long peninsulaRamore Head. It had a population of 6,150 people at the 2021 Census.[4]

The town is well known for its three sandy beaches, the West Strand, East Strand and White Rocks, as well as the Royal Portrush Golf Club, the only golf club outside Great Britain which has hosted The Open Championship in 1951 and 2019.

The Town of Portrush developed due to the rise in popularity of bathing and tourism, a growing economy, rail transport, the proximity of the Giant’s Causeway and the Causeway Tram, not to mention it’s natural scenic beauty. The many Presbyterian visitors and locals desired a place of worship and eventually it was agreed to build the present church building. Such an undertaking for the 30 resident families was too much and the young minister who had just come in 1842 went off to the United States to find support. He left on June 23, 1842 and after 1 year and 14,000 miles he returned with $5465 from Irish immigrants making a new life in America.

A number of flint tools found during the late 19th century show that the site of Portrush was occupied during the “Larnian” (late Irish Mesolithic) period;[6] recent estimates date this to around 4000 BC.[7]

The site of Portrush, with its excellent natural defences, probably became a permanent settlement around the 12th or 13th century. A church is known to have existed on Ramore Head at this time, but no part of it now survives. From the records of the papal taxation of 1306, the Portrush church – and by extension the village – appears to have been reasonably wealthy. The promontory also held two castles, at varying periods. The first of these, Caisleán an Teenie, is believed to have been at the tip of Ramore Head, and probably destroyed in the late 16th century; the other, Portrush Castle, may have been built around the time of the Plantation of Ulster in the early 17th century. Nothing survives of either castle.[8]

Following the Wars of the Three Kingdoms in the mid-17th century, Portrush became a small fishing town. It grew heavily in the 19th century as a tourist destination, following the opening of the Ballymena, Ballymoney, Coleraine and Portrush Junction Railway in 1855, and by the turn of the 20th century had become one of the major resort towns of Ireland, with a number of large hotels and boarding houses including the prominent Northern Counties Hotel. As well as the town’s beaches and the Royal Portrush Golf Club (opened 1888), the nearby Giant’s Causeway was a popular tourist destination, with the Giant’s Causeway Tramway – at the time, one of the world’s longest electrified railways – built in 1893 to cater to travellers coming from Portrush.[9]

The town’s fortunes peaked in the late 19th and early 20th century, and declined after the Second World War with the growth of foreign travel. It escaped any involvement in the Troubles until 3 August 1976, when a series of bombings of properties burned out and destroyed several buildings, though with no loss of life.[10] In a second attack in April 1987, two officers of the Royal Ulster Constabulary (RUC) were shot in the back by the Provisional Irish Republican Army while on foot patrol on Main Street.[11]

The next major event in the life of the church was the Revival of 1858-9. This was an occasion when God visited the land in a powerful outpouring of blessing. The result of this was an increase in the church numbers. About 30% of the entire town were revived spiritually, most coming to a living faith for the first time. Thousands would meet in the open air at Ramore and Dunmull Hills listening to far travelled preachers such as Brownlow North. The famous American Evangelist Dwight L Moody preached in the church not many years after this.

Today we have a congregation of 230 families. Our goals have not changed since the early years – to be a living community of Believing and worshipping people of all ages. We emphasise:-

  • The primacy of preaching as the great need of the age. In a morally confused and spiritually vague world we call people back to the solid truths of the Bible as the only hope for our world.
  • The place of each Christian in using their gifts and talents in advancing the Cause of Jesus Christ.
  • The spirit of service within our fellowship and in our community reflecting the one who came ‘not to be served but to serve and give His life a ransom for many’


Portstewart and the mouth of the River Bann from a nearby town, connects together and becomes the Portstewart Strand. This strand was purchased in 1981 by the National Trust and it has been awarded the European Blue Flag beach status for its high-water quality and beach management. The National Trust also has it protected and honored due to its historical significance and inherent beauty as well as to protect the native wildlife, wild flora, fauna, grasslands and dunes. The Portstewart strand is also known as one of few remaining beaches in Ireland where cars still have access and permission to drive onto the beach- perfect for families who wish to picnic on the golden shores.

Portstewart developed to a modest size seaside resort in the mid 19th century under the influence of a local landlord, John Cromie. Its development and character was influenced greatly by the Sabbatarian sensitivities of the Cromies and the consequent resistance to a railway connection in the mid 19th century.[9]



Coleraine has a long history of settlement. The Mesolithic site at Mount Sandel, which dates from approximately 5935 BC[5] is some of the earliest evidence of human settlement in Ireland.[6]

The 9th-century Hagiography Tripartite Life of Saint Patrick records how the town got its name. When Patrick arrived in the neighbourhood, he was received with great honour and hospitality by the local chieftain, Nadslua, who offered him a piece of ground on which to build a church. The spot was next to the river Bann and was overgrown with ferns, which were being burned by some boys to amuse themselves. This incident led to the area being called Cúil Raithin (‘nook of ferns’), which was later anglicised as ColrainColerain and Coleraine. It was translated by Colgan into Latin as Secessus Filicis.

The town was one of the two urban communities developed by the London Companies in County Londonderry in the Plantation of Ulster at the start of the 17th century. The slightly skewed street pattern of Coleraine’s town centre is the legacy of that early exercise in town planning, along with traces of the lines of the ramparts that provided the Plantation town with its defences.

During the War of the Two Kings (1689–91) Coleraine was a centre of Protestant resistance to the rule of James IIRichard Hamilton‘s Irish Army made an attempt to seize the town but was repulsed. The Protestants were forced to abandon the town shortly afterwards and withdrew to Derry. Later the same year, following the failed Siege of Derry, Sir Charles Carney and his Jacobite garrison fled the town on receiving news of the advance of Percy Kirke‘s Enniskillen forces and the landing at Carrickfergus of Marshal Schomberg. The Williamites controlled Coleraine for the remainder of the war.

Limavady and its surrounding settlements derive from Celtic roots, although no-one is sure about the exact date of Limavady’s origins. Estimates date from around 5 CE. Early records tell of Saint Columba, who presided over a meeting of the Kings at Mullagh Hill near Limavady in 575 CE, a location which is now part of the Roe Park Resort.[5]

Gaelic Ireland was divided into kingdoms, each ruled by its own family or clan. In the Limavady area, the predominant family was the O’Cahans. Their mark is found everywhere in the town and surrounding area. O’Cahan‘s Rock is one of Limavady’s main historical points. This is where, according to local myth, a dog belonging to one of the Chiefs jumped the river to get help from nearby clans after a surprise enemy attack. This gave Limavady its name, Limavady being the anglicised version of Leim an Mhadaidh, which means leap of the dog.[5] This rock, along with other relics of Limavady’s history, can be seen at Roe Valley Country Park.


This article is about the town in County Antrim. For other uses, see Ballymoney (disambiguation).

The town hosts the Ballymoney Drama Festival, the oldest drama festival in Ireland, which was founded in 1933. The town also hosts the Ballymoney Show, which is one of the oldest agricultural shows in Northern Ireland and was founded in 1902.[8]

16th and 17th century[edit]

In 1556, an account of an English expedition against the MacDonnells, a sept of the Scottish Clan Donald that lorded over a wide expanse of north and east Antrim known as the Route and Glynns, records “a bishop’s house, which was with a castle and a church joined together in one, called Ballymonyn”.[9] Destroyed in the Irish Rebellion of 1641, no vestige of the bishop’s house or castle remains, but a tower of a church built in 1637 by Sir Randall MacDonnell survives and is the town’s oldest structure.[10]

In the wake of the devastation caused by the Tudor Conquest of Ulster, Sir Randall had invited settlers from lowland Scotland.[11] Unlike the MacDonnells and the native Irish, the majority of these were not Roman Catholics, but neither did they recognise the episcopacy of the reformed church established under the British Crown. Conscious of their disabilities both as “dissenters” from the established church and as tenants at will, after two/three generations these Scottish Presbyterians began to leave in search of opportunity elsewhere.[12]


The Bushmills Old Distillery Company itself was not established until 1784 by Hugh Anderson.[1] Bushmills suffered many lean years with numerous periods of closure with no record of the distillery being in operation in the official records both in 1802 and in 1822. In 1860 a Belfast spirit merchant named Jame McColgan and Patrick Corrigan bought the distillery; in 1880 they formed a limited company. In 1885, the original Bushmills buildings were destroyed by fire but the distillery was swiftly rebuilt. In 1890, a steamship owned and operated by the distillery, SS Bushmills, made its maiden voyage across the Atlantic to deliver Bushmills whiskey to America. It called at Philadelphia and New York City before heading on to SingaporeHong KongShanghai and Yokohama.

  • Bushmills Original – Irish whiskey blend sometimes called White Bush or Bushmills White Label. The grain whiskey is matured in American oak casks.
  • Black Bush – A blend with a significantly greater proportion of malt whiskey than the white label. It features malt whiskey aged in casks previously used for Spanish Oloroso sherry.
  • Red Bush – Like the Black Bush, this is a blend with a higher proportion of malt whiskey than the standard bottling, but in contrast, the malt whiskey has been matured in ex-bourbon casks.
  • Bushmills 10-year single malt – Combines malt whiskeys aged at least 10 years in American bourbon or Oloroso sherry casks.
  • Bushmills Distillery Reserve 12-year single malt – exclusively available at the Old Bushmills Distillery, this 12-year aged single malt is matured in oak casks for a rich, complex flavour with notes of sherry, dark chocolate and spices.
  • Bushmills 16-year single malt – Malt whiskeys aged at least 16 years in American bourbon barrels or Spanish Oloroso sherry butts are mixed together before finishing in Port pipes for a few months.
  • Bushmills 21-year single malt – A limited number of 21-year bottles are made each year. After 19 years, bourbon-barrel-aged and sherry-cask-aged malt whiskeys are combined, which is followed by two years of finishing in Madeira drums.
  • Bushmills 1608: Originally released as a special 400th Anniversary whiskey; since 2009 it will be available only in the Whiskey Shop at the distillery and at duty-free shops.[11]
