SLATER's Directory - Tanderagee (1846)

Extracted from: SLATER'S Royal National Commercial Directory of Ireland.

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, 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 is continually improving his demesne, and which is a great ornament to the town's vicinage. The mansion or castle of Tanderagee is a large and modern baronial pile, erected by the Duke when Viscount Mandeville, and 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 and yard-wide linens, and large quantities at one time were brought to the market here. This trade is not so extensive at present, but its flax market is large, and some of the finest of this article in the kingdom is produced in this district. 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 once a fortnight; courts leet are held twice a year, and courts baron at which debts under 40s. are recoverable, every third Thursday.

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 Methodists. The Catholic chapel, a neat edifice, is about a mile from the town.

There are two schools supported liberally by the Dutchess of Manchester, in which a great number of children are sedulously instructed; there is also a clothing fund supported, and a loan fund patronized by her Grace; and there are dispensaries, of which the same benevolent Lady is the main support.

The market, which is one of the most extensive in Ireland, for the sale of flax, is held on Wednesday. The annual fairs are July 5th and November 5th; and there are fairs on the first Wednesday in the other months of the year.

The town contained in 1841, 1,562 inhabitants.
