1. Hanna's shirt factory

Back

Information

Hanna's shirt factory was originally located on Main Street. This building was built as a potato store. Potatoes would be carried up river by barges or 'Lighters'. In the past the river was the main thoroughfare for trade in the village. Lighters transported seeds, fertiliser, coal, and building materials along the Bann to Portglenone. In the same way, Portglenone exported its potatoes, grass seed, livestock and 'Bann bricks'.
