                                               The Folklore of Trees
                                               There has always been a strong association in the Glens of Antrim
                                               between the hawthorn tree and fairies. Small, gnarled hawthorns,
                                               often of great age, survive on slopes and in fields where other
                                               obstructions to the plough have long since been removed. Stories
                                               abound of the misfortunes that have befallen those foolish enough
                                               to cut down a ‘skeoch’, as they are known (someone struck dumb
                                               or even a man’s head turned back-to-front).
                                                    Twigs of hazel are favoured by water diviners and noted for
                                               providing protection against mischievous fairies, (tying a hazel
                                               branch to a horse discourages fairies from taking the animal).
                                               Alder, on the other hand, is feared for harbouring water spirits and
                                               the ash is said to be the first tree that lightning will strike, and
                                               should be avoided in a storm.
                                                    The survival of beliefs and traditions within the glens
                                               continues to enrich the cultural heritage of the area, and, although
                                               not everyone will admit to believing in fairies, few would dare to
                                               cut down a hawthorn tree.

 Ossian the Bard
 Ossian the Bard was the son of Finn McCool and a great warrior and poet. Ossian was tempted to
 dwell with Niamh, a lady of the ‘Underworld’, the ‘Land of Eternal Youth’, where no one ever aged.
 He was warned never to set foot on land again or he would at once grow old and frail. But he could
 not resist coming back to Glenaan, and set about doing so on horseback, but he fell from his horse
 while assisting an old lady, and on contact with the ground aged and died almost at once. A stone-
 age burial cairn near Cushendall has long been romantically associated with the grave of Ossian.

      The Glens of Antrim
      These nine famous glens, endowed with evocative names and
      blessed with a diversity of landscape are also rich in history, in
      folklore and in the natural beauty that is a world away from the
      frantic bustle of modern life. Famed in legend are the magnificent
      Glens of Antrim. The rich musical sounds of their names and their
      meanings relate to the character of the glens or events of long
      ago. Characterised by tumbling waterfalls, rushing rivers, lush
      forest parks and spectacular scenery, each glen is unique in its
      beauty and each deserves a visit.


      Glencloy
      The glen of the hedges, two miles north of Glenarm, with the
      village of Carnlough at its foot.

      Glenarm
      The glen of the army - with Glenarm village, eleven miles north
      of Larne, on the famous Antrim Coast road.

      Glenariff
      The arable or fertile glen, the best-known of the nine, which
      sweeps majestically towards the village of Waterfoot.

      Glenballyemon
      Edwardstown glen, at the foot of which is Cushendall, more or
      less at the centre of the nine glens.

      Glencorp
      The glen of the slaughtered, close by Glenaan and roughly
      parallel to the main road from Cushendall to Cushendun.

      Glenaan
      The glen of the colt’s foot or rush lights, a rugged glen - having
      the site of the legendary Ossian’s grave, with the Cushendall -
      Ballymoney mountain road.

      Glendun
      The glen of the brown river, adjacent to Cushendun village;
      spanned by a viaduct on the main Cushendall to Ballycastle road.

      Glenshesk
      The sedgy glen, east of the town of Ballycastle, and sweeping
      towards the ruins of historical Bonamargy friary.

      Glentaisie
      The glen of ‘Taisie of the bright sides’, roughly west of Ballycastle
      and, like Glenshesk, close to the town.

                                                      Finn McCool
                                                      The legend tells us that the Irish Giant Finn McCool
                                                      had a rival - a Scottish giant named Benandonner.
                                                      Finn McCool decided to build a causeway to Scotland
                                                      so that he could challenge his adversary in battle.
                                                      When the work was completed, the causeway
                                                      stretched from North Antrim to Staffa. Benandonner
                                                      accepted the invitation to walk over to Ireland and
                                                      fight for supremacy. As Benandonner appeared over
                                                      the horizon, Finn McCool realised in horror that he
                                                      had taken on a rival much bigger than himself. He
                                                      ran home to his wife, Oonagh. What to do? The quick
                                                      thinking Oonagh disguised Finn as a baby and made
                                                      him curl up in an enormous cradle. Benandonner -
                                                      faced with the sight of this huge ‘child’ took fright at
                                                      the thought of the size of his father and fled back to
                                                      Scotland, tearing up the causeway in his wake.



                                                      Ballygally Castle
                                                      Hotel Ghost
                                                      Every castle has to have a ghost of some kind, and
                                                      the ghost of Ballygally has been around for the best
                                                      part of 400 years! The popular theory is that the ghost
                                                      is that of Lady Isobella Shaw, wife of Lord James
                                                      Shaw. Lord Shaw wanted a son, and when his wife
                                                      delivered his heir, he snatched the baby from his wife
                                                      and locked her in a room at the top of the castle.
                                                      While trying to escape to search for her beloved
                                                      child, Lady Isobella fell to her death from the tower
                                                      window! Another theory is that she was actually
                                                      thrown from the window by the cruel Lord Shaw or
                                                      one of his henchmen!
                                                           Lady Isobella’s ghost is reputed to be a ‘friendly’
                                                      spirit who walks the corridors of the old castle.
                                                      Over the years many guests have reported strange
                                                      experiences and have felt a presence in their rooms!
                                                      There are also endless stories of unexplained noises
                                                      in the night, and an eerie green mist over the castle!
                                                      The hotel is so fiercely proud of their permanent
                                                      resident they have even given her her own bedroom,
                                                      ‘The Ghost Room’ in one of the towers in the oldest

 The Watershee
 Usually appearing as either a female
 fairy or a beautiful woman, the
 Watershee lures weary travellers
 into bogs and lakes with her sweet
 singing; only to drown them and
 devour their unfortunate souls.

 Only the wearing of a cross or saying
 a prayer will protect human beings
 from her dark and evil ways.

                                          1




 The Black Nun
 Bonamargy Friary contains
 important tombs. The crypt of
 the McDonnell clan is in the main
 church, close to that of their
 stewards, the McNaghtons. A small
 rounded cross with a hole in the
 centre at the west door marks the
 grave of Julia McQuillan, a recluse
 who resided here in the 1600s,
 better known as ‘The Black Nun’.
 She was famous for her predictions,
 some of which local believers claim
 to have been fulfilled. There have
 been many sightings of a figure,
 reported to be the Black Nun,
 haunting Bonamargy.

                                                      St. Patrick
                                                      Patrick was brought to Ireland as a slave and taken
                                                      to Antrim where he was sold to a local landowner,
                                                      Meliuc, who put him to work as a shepherd. For six
                                                      long years, Patrick lived upon Slemish mountain with
                                                      only his sheep for company. The land was bleak and
                                                      the conditions harsh but Patrick found solace in the
                                                      faith that his people had abandoned. One night he
                                                      heard a voice calling to him, telling him that the time
                                                      had come to escape. It told him, “See, your ship is
                                                      ready.” Patrick knew that he had to travel south to
                                                      seek the ship God had told him of. He travelled for
                                                      200 miles until he came to Wexford where, sure
                                                      enough, a boat heading for Britain was waiting.



                                                      The Leap of the Dog
                                                      Limavady derives its name from the Irish ‘Leim an
                                                      Mhadaidh’ meaning leap of the dog, arising from the
                                                      legendary leap over the River Roe by a dog owned by
                                                      the O’Cahan Clan to warn the chieftains of an enemy
                                                      ambush. The jump took place from the Dogleap
                                                      Bridge, in the Roe Valley Country Park, where the site
                                                      of the O’Cahan’s castle once stood.



                                                      Children of Lir
                                                      Children of Lir is a tragic story. Lir was a famous Irish
                                                      Chieftain whose wife died after giving him a daughter
                                                      and three sons. He then married his dead wife’s evil
                                                      half-sister. She cast a spell on the children turning
                                                      them into beautiful white swans, destined to spend
                                                      nine hundred years in exile. Three hundred of these
                                                      years passed here, on the Waters of Moyle, and the
                                                      birds’ lonely cries were heard about the bay. Finally,
                                                      their sentence expired and they changed instantly
                                                      into old people. Old and weak, they were baptised
                                                      and died together. There is a local belief that it was
                                                      to a little port on the Sea of Moyle that the children
                                                      returned when their ordeal was over.

Ireland Road Racing
Experience the region’s Motorcycle Heritage
This is one of the very few places in the world where you can enjoy
motorcycle road racing at its adrenalin-charged best.
     The region is home to Ireland’s Number 1 road racing event, the
famous North West 200, which celebrated its 80th anniversary in 2009.
It’s more than a sporting sensation, it’s a festival for the entire family.
The region’s road racing heritage was cemented with the Armoy
Armada which was established in 1977 by Frank Kennedy, Jim Dunlop,
Mervyn Robinson and the local road racing legend Joey Dunlop. His
achievements include three hat-tricks at the Isle of Man TT where he
won 26 races in total; he won the Ulster Grand Prix 24 times and, in
1986, he won a fifth consecutive Formula One world title.
     The Joey Dunlop Memorial Garden and the nearby museum in
Ballymoney have become points of pilgrimage for people from around
