"From Newtown Stewart to Strabane the water, under the names of the Strule and Mourne, is perhaps the most beautiful river in Ulster, whether we regard its volume, current, or its accompanying banks; and yet, with the exception of a solitary parsonage, not a house worthy of notice looks upon it, or in any way participates in its beauties; nor with the exception of turning two or three wretched mill wheels, and propelling the machinery of the large flax-spinning factory above referred to, are its waters applied to any useful purpose."
