Bailieborough, or Moybologue, a market and post-town, and a parish, partly in the barony of Lower Kells, county of Meath, and province of Leinster, and partly in that of Castlerahan, but chiefly in that of Clonkee, county of Cavan, and province of Ulster, 112' miles (N. w. by N.) from Kells, and 42¼ miles (N. W.) from Dublin; contain-ing 10,480 inhabitants, of which number, 1085 are in the town. This town is situated on the road from Cootehill to Kells, and consists of only one street, containing 165 houses. The market is the largest in the county, and is on Monday. Fairs are held on Feb. 17th , May 17th, June 15th, Aug. 14th, Oct. 14th, and Nov. 17th. The Hilary and Midsummer general quarter ses-sions are held here: the court-house was enlarged and improved in 1834. The bridewell was built in that year, and contains five cells and two yards, with separate day-rooms and yards for female prisoners. A manorial court is held yearly; and here is a station of the constabulary police.
