The Story

Steeped in history on the Lennon estuary, Ramelton was home to stone age man, the Vikings, and the O’Donnell clan. In 1610, William Stewart bought the land and built the first town with Scottish families. Between the mid 1700s and 1800s, the linen industry boomed and brought ships all the way from the Carribean. Today there is a wonderful mix of Plantation and Georgian styles, but the port stands still – waiting for another film crew perhaps?

This view captures the quay area of the town and its iconic buildings from times gone by: the storehouses, courthouses, town hall, and the original bottling store of McDaid’s Football Special. Long may they stand.
