"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."
[From Slater's Directory (1846)]
