Directory: 1881 Slater's Directory of Westport, Newport and Neighbourhoods *********************************************** Ireland Genealogy Projects Archives Mayo Index Copyright ************************************************ File contributed by: Cathy Labath 1881 SLATER'S DIRECTORY OF WESTPORT, NEWPORT AND NEIGHBOURHOODS WESTPORT NEWPORT AND NEIGHBOURHOODS WESTPORT is a seaport and market town in the parish of OUGHAVAL, barony of Murrisk, county of Mayo, 161 miles w. from Dublin, 28 s. by w. from Ballina, 10 s.w. from Castlebar, and about 7 s. from Newport; situated at the south eastern extremity of Clew bay, and at the mouth of a small river, which falls into that part of it forming the harbour of Westport – a name derived from its situation on the western coast. The town, which is of modern date, and is lighted with gas and supplied with water, consists of several streets and a mall of neat houses. The approach from Castlebar is singularly beautiful, being enriched with the well-planted desmesne of the Marquess of Sligo (who is proprietor of the town), and commanding a fine view of Clew bay, studded with picturesque islands, and the lofty mountains of Nephin, Achill, Enis, and Croagh-Patrick - the latter might eminence celebrated as the annual resort of penitents. The trade of the port has declined considerably during the last few years. The exports comprise grain - principally oats, together with oatmeal and flour. The imports consist of timber, foreign wheat, wines, spirits, tea, sugar, and various goods of British production. A brewery, belonging to Mr. Livingstone; two branch banks (the Ulster, and Bank of Ireland), and an admirably-conducted hotel are the chief business establishments. The general sessions of the peace are held here in January, April, June & October, and petty sessions are every Thursday. These courts are held in the court house, a neat substantial stone building. The Protestant Episcopal church is a handsome stone structure, in the ancient Gothic style, erected at considerable cost, the nobleman previously mentioned being the city donor. On the Mall is a spacious Roman Catholic church in the Gothic style, erected by subscription in 1813. The Wesleyan Methodists have a chapel at this spot; and the Presbyterians have also a place of worship. The neighbourhood of Westport is the residence of many respectable families, and some of the mansions are placed in situations of great beauty, commanding extensive views of Clew bay, with its many Islands; the bay is a favourite resort for visitors in the summer season for bathing. The market, a wel lattended one for linen, corn, provisions, &c., is held on Thursday. Fairs: January 1st, March 21st, May 22nd, August 6th, September 22nd, and November 1st. In 1861 the population of the parish was 8,802, and in 1871, 7,906 (including the portion called Quay Town); at the latter date Westport numbered 4,417 inhabitants. NEWPORT, or Newport-Pratt, is a market and post town and seaport, in the parish and barony of BURRISHOOLE, county of Mayo, 169 miles w. from Dublin, 11 1/2 N.W. from Castlebar, and 7 N. from Westport, situated at the extremity of Clew bay, on the north bank of Newport river, whic, together with that of the Burrishoole, also flowing through the parish, abound with salmon. The first-named river is crossed by a good stone bridge, and there are weirs constructed on both streams for the purposes of the fishery, which is pursued here advantageously and the produce, after supplying the neighbourhood, contributes largely to the Dublin and inland markets. The exports consist chiefly of grain and oatmeal; for the latter there is a considerable mill contiguous to the town. The imports, since the removeal of the custom-house to WEstport, have become inconsiderable. The channel here is deemed perfectly safe, being unobstructed by bars or sand-banks, and vessels of 250 tons burthen can come up the quay. It is also admirably adapted for sea bathing, and it becomes the resort of families of distinction during the season, Sir George O'Donnell, Bart., who is proprietor of the town, has greatly improved it, as well as the land in the neighbourhood, which naturally is remarkably productive. The same gentleman, in connection with some of the merchants here, erected the pier. The town, though small, has a very neat and clean appearance. The houses in the principal street are uniformly lofty, and substantially built, and its shops are well stored with all local requisites. There is an hotel and posting house. In a small court house petty sessions are held every alternate Tuesday. The places of worship are a Protestant Episcopal church, a Roman Catholic church, a church for Presbyterians and a Wesleyan Methodist chapel. The church, situated in the highest part of the town, is a modern structure, the interior neatly fitted and furnished with a gallery, in whcih there is a small organ. There are two National schools. Newport House, the residence of Sir George O'Donnell, Bart., J.P., D.L., is contiguous to the town. About a mile to the south-east is Carrickaneady, one of the castles said to have been built by the Burkes. About two miles from the town is the extensive and beautiful ruin of Burrishoole Abbey; and three miles distance, on the sea-shore, is Rockfleet Castle, a small square fortress, said to have been erected by Grana-Uile, better known as Grace O'Malley, and celebrated for her maritime exploits. The surrounding scenery is of the most picturesque character. There is an uninterrupted view of the Clew Bay island, said to be 365 in number. The mountains abound with game, and seal shooting along the coast is much pursued. The market, an exceedingly well attended one, is held on Tuesday. Fairs: June 8th, August 1st, November 11th, and December 20th. The parish of Burrishoole contained in 1861, 6,318 and in 1871, 6,100 inhabitants, of which number the town contained 851.
