Coleraine is a town in Northern Ireland located on the former borders of Antrim and Londonderry, now part of the Causeway Coast and Glens District. The city's name comes from the Irish term CĂșil Raithin, which refers to a "nook of ferns" named by St Patrick. It was anglicized as Colrain, Colerain, and then, later on, Coleraine over time.


Coleraine has a long history of human habitation. Flint instruments dating back to nearly 7000 BCE have been discovered in the vicinity, providing the first evidence of human settlement in Ireland. Coleraine was a center of Protestant resistance against James II during the War of the Two Kings from 1689 to 1691. Coleraine had grown significantly during the 19th century and into the early part of the 20th century. This growth is mainly due to industrialization and the expansion of river ports. From the year 1980 onwards, economic growth has continued yet at a more modest rate.
