The Entries information
The narrow alleyways running between High St and Ann St, known as the Entries, were once bustling commercial and residential thoroughfares; Pottinger's Entry , for example, had 34 houses in 1822.
Joy's Entry is named after Francis Joy, who founded the Belfast News Letter in 1737, the first daily newspaper in the British Isles (it's still in business). One of his grandsons, Henry Joy McCracken, was executed for supporting the 1798 United Irishmen revolt.
The United Irishmen were founded in 1791 by Wolfe Tone in Peggy Barclay's tavern in Crown Entry , and used to meet in the historic Kelly's Cellars .
White's Tavern , on Wine Cellar Entry , is the oldest tavern in the city and is still a popular lunchtime meeting spot.
