Coleraine and Suburbs, County Derry


See parish name


The town of Coleraine which is mainly east of the Lower Bann in the townland of COLERAINE AND SUBURBS contains the site of an early monastery which may be marked by the present Church of Ireland parish church. The latter dates from 1614, though much altered since then.

The portion of the town which is west of the river is divided between the townlands of WATERSIDE and CHURCHLAND in the parish of KILLOWEN. Coleraine was the original name of the county of Londonderry and has also given name to the baronies of COLERAINE and NORTH-EAST LIBERTIES OF COLERAINE [(cellolaCuile Raithin c.630].
