English: The River Bann at Tullylish This is the view upstream of the Bann at Tullylish between Banbridge and Gilford. The river provided power for a nearby linen mill which has long since closed. One of the buildings has been re-erected at the Ulster Folk Museum http://www.uftm.org.uk/collections_and_research/folk_collections/rural_buildings/tullylish_bleach_green_watch_tower/.

English: Drumlin country (12) This is a view of the drumlins at Drumhorc near Tullylish. Careful positioning of the camera was needed to avoid the electricity pylons which spoil an otherwise attractive piece of drumlin country. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

English: Tullylish old church There is quite a history attached to the old church at Tullylish. Excavations suggest that there was a monastery on the site in the 6th century. The first minister is recorded in 1526. It was destroyed in the wars of 1641 and rebuilt in 1698 before being abandoned in 1861 when replaced by the new church on the other side of the road. It is said that it could hold a congregation of 600. WB Yeats (senior) was rector in 1846. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)
