The town of Coalisland evolved from the settlement which grew up around the terminus of the Coalisland Canal. Work on the canal began in 1733, but progress was slow and it wasn’t officially opened until 1787. The push to build a waterway had come from the desire to cheapen the cost of transporting coal from the Tyrone coalfields to Dublin. The canal linked the coalfields with Lough Neagh, via the River Blackwater. The canal did not thrive in its early years and in fact came dangerously close to being abandoned. However, the export of agricultural produce and import of farm and mine equipment kept the waterway open. In the 19th century serious repairs had to be carried out to save the canal. A rejuvenation programme was carried out. Dredging, digging, rebuilding locks, establishing a proper lock-keeping system, creating proper towpaths – all this work transformed the “old navigation” into the Coalisland Canal whose terminus rapidly became the focal point of a unique village and inland port.
As the 19th century progressed traffic on the canal increased but never reached the volume hoped for. During this period the Basin (terminus) became a nucleus trading depot for the surrounding towns and villages. The ease of communication afforded by the waterway encouraged the rise of several small local industries. It was now possible to transport large quantities of general merchandise to Belfast in three days by horse-drawn lighters. Newry was a two day journey. Tolls, however, remained low leaving the canal breaking even most of the time. Towards the end of the 19th century trade and profits began to improve, but sadly a major threat began to loom on the horizon. Although trade increased officially with each passing year, competition with the railways soon evolved into a struggle. Coalisland was by then really Ireland’s only trans-shipment centre. Exports included sand, bricks, tiles, pottery, fireclay and agricultural goods. Products being imported in were grocery provisions, hardware, grain and – ironically – coal.
