SLATER's Directory - Tanderagee (1881)

Extracted from: SLATER'S Royal National Commercial Directory of Ireland (published. in Manchester, 1881).

TANDERAGEE, anciently Tawnatclee or Tawnatelee, is a market town, in the parish of BALLYMORE, barony of Lower Orior, County of Armagh, 80 miles N. from Dublin, 33 S.W. from Belfast, 14 N. by W. from Newry, 11 W. by N. from Armagh, 9 S. by W. from Lurgan, 6½ W. by N. from Banbridge, 5½ N. by W. from Loughbrickland, and the same distance E.S.E. from Richhill, and 5 S. by E. from Portadown ; seated on the river Cusher, and at the intersection of the road from Portadown to Newry with that from Richhill to Banbridge. The Newry canal, which comes within a mile and a half of the town, offers all its important facilities of communication for trading with the large towns of Belfast and Newry, besides bringing an abundant supply of coal, and also of lime for the purposes of agriculture, to the surrounding district.

The town is also extensively benefited by the Dublin and Belfast Junction Railway, which passes very near to Tanderagee.

The town, which consists of two principal and three smaller streets, is prepossessing in its general appearance, and, as seen from a distance, rising from a beautiful vale, through which the river winds between its lofty and richly-wooded banks at one extremity, the demesne of Tanderagee crowning the hill on the other, forms a strikingly picturesque feature in the landscape. The town stands on the estate of the Duke of Manchester, whose demesne is a great ornament to the town's vicinage. The mansion or castle of Tanderagee is a large and modern baronial pile, occupying the site of an ancient castellated and fortified residence. Adjoining the castle is a beautiful chapel, and the entire pile, with its adjunctive beauties, are well deserving the visit of the tourist.

The country round has been long celebrated for the manufacture of yarns and yard-wide linens, and large quantities at one time were brought to the market here. This trade is not so extensive at present. A spinning mill for the manufacture of linen yarn, belonging to Mr. Thomas Sinton, is situated here. A branch of the Belfast Banking Company is established here. Petty sessions for the division are held the first Tuesday in every month.

The town is governed by a Board of Commissioners. The church, originally built by Oliver St. John, and which was nearly demolished during the wars of 1641, was re-built in 1812, on the site of the old church, and is a very handsome Gothic structure. The other places of worship are for Baptists, Roman Catholics, Presbyterians, and Wesleyan Methodists. The Roman Catholic Church is a neat edifice, in the Gothic style of architecture. There are four schools under the National Board, partly supported by the Duke of Manchester, in which a large number of children are educated; there is also a clothing fund supported, and there are dispensaries, of which the same benevolent nobleman is the main support. The market is held on Wednesday. The annual fairs are July 5th and November 5th.

The town contained in 1881, 1,185, and in 1871, 1,210 inhabitants.
