Portglenone
West of the Bann on the Maghera Road, the village of Portglenone stands on both banks of the River Bann and is thus partly in counties Antrim and Londonderry with the larger proportion of its residents in the Antrim bank of the River. Always a place of importance because of its bridge over the River Bann, Portglenone was formerly known for its grass-seed market, linen factories and important salmon fishery and now home to an 18-berth marina.

The famous Timothy Eaton who emigrated to Canada in the last century and established the world famous Eaton Stores across Canada, worked in Portglenone.
