Today’s townland is Ballymaconnell, on the southeast edge of Bangor.
The street sign for Ballymaconnell Road is actually in the townland of Ballyholme, but if you travel inland you do eventually reach the townland of Ballymaconnell and the street called Ballymaconnell Road South. As usual with Bangor, you must navigate the ring road, this time at the Donaghadee Road roundabout.
But things do get more peaceful. The next image of houses and fields shows how Ballymaconnell is located on the edge of town.
This stream forms part of the boundary between Ballymaconnell and Ballycroghan.
Bangor churchyard contains this gravestone for the Cooker/Davidson family from Ballymaconnell.
This one for the Clugston family is even older, marking a death in 1720.

I lived in Ballymaconnell Road about 55 years ago. A nice wee walk down to the beach, or the other way to a farm where we we allowed to shortcut to my grandmother’s house on Donaghadee Road. Everything seemed very near, and quiet.

I wonder if the farm is still there – probably a housing estate now. But the beach is still popular. I took the photo of the road sign one day when I was on my way to the beach.
