Named from the Irish word Carraig Fhearghais which means Fergus rock, Carrickfergus is a large town and was a former district in County Antrim, Northern Ireland. Located roughly 11 miles from Belfast, Carrickfergus had a population of 27,998 people in the 2011 Census.


Carrickfergus is one of County Antrim's oldest settlements and one of Ireland's earliest towns. It was for a long time both larger and more prominent than the nearby city, and it predates even Belfast by many decades. Once the administrative center for Carrickfergus Borough Council before being merged in 2015 into the Mid and East Antrim District Council, Carrickfergus is a townland that became an important center for the textile industry in the 1970s.
