Economy

A major Coca-Cola owned bottling plant is sited in Tullynacross. Ulster's very own water brand, Deep RiverRock, is bottled there. [2] The plant is adjacent to a lock on the Lagan Canal (also known as the Lagan Navigation), and dominates the edge of the towpath where it meets Tullynacross Road. The site was formerly occupied by Lambeg Bleach Works and both chose the location because of the deep underground aquifer supplying large amounts of clean fresh water. A bleach green was first established here between the river and canal in 1626. [3]

Lagan Canal Canal between Belfast and Lough Neagh, Northern Ireland

The Lagan Canal was a 44-kilometre (27 mi) canal built to connect Belfast to Lough Neagh. The first section, which is a river navigation, was opened in 1763, and linked Belfast to Lisburn. The second section from Lisburn to Lough Neagh includes a small amount of river navigation, but was largely built as a canal. At its peak it was one of the most successful of the Irish canals, but ultimately it was unable to compete with road and rail transport, and the two sections were closed in 1954 and 1958. The central section from Sprucefield to Moira was destroyed by the construction of the M1 motorway in the 1960s. Responsibility for most of its remains passed first to the Department of Agriculture and then to the Department of Culture, Arts and Leisure, although the section between Aghalee Bridge and Lough Neagh, including the final ten locks, passed into private ownership. There is an active campaign to re-open the canal, including reinstatement of the central section.
