Killeshandara (Parish and Town)
"Killeshandra is a market town and a parish, in the barony
Tullyhunco, county of Cavan, 77 miles NW from Dublin 28 S. from Enniskillen,
19.5 SW from Clones, 11 W from Cavan, 8 SSE from Ballyconnell, and 6 NW from
Crossdoney; pleasantly situated on the Croghan, a tributary stream to the Erne.
It occupies a romantic site on a gently rising ground, environed by a chain of
interesting lakes; and consists of a spacious, clean and well-built street, in
the centre of which is a well arranged neatly constructed market-house. This is
a flourishing and respectable little place, one of the best markets for linen
in the county, and many of the inhabitants of the town and district are
employed in its manufacture. The principal inn here is the Victoria Hotel, a
remarkably well conducted house. Petty sessions are held every alternate
Thursday, and a manorial court occasionally."
