Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Cushendall and formerly known as Newtown Glens is a village and townland in County Antrim, Northern Ireland. It is on the A2 coast road between Glenariff and Cushendun, in the Antrim Coast and Glens Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It lies in the shadow of the table topped Lurigethan Mountain and at the meeting point of three of the Glens of Antrim: Glenaan, Glenballyemon and Glencorp. This part of the Irish coastline is separated from Scotland by the North Channel, with the Mull of Kintyre about 16 miles away. In the 2001 Census it had a population of 1,241 people, of whom 98% were Catholic. Much of the historic character of the 19th century settlement on the north bank of the River Dall remains. In 1973 it was designated as only the second Conservation Area in Northern Ireland, and includes the largely intact Irish Georgian buildings of the town's four original streets. Each August, Cushendall hosts the Heart Of The Glens festival. The festival has been running since 1990.show more
