Portadown (from Irish: Port a’ Dúnáin meaning “port of the small stronghold”) is a town in County Armagh, Northern Ireland. The town sits on the River Bann in the north of the county, about 23 miles (37 km) south-west of Belfast. It is in the Craigavon Borough Council area and had a population of about 22,000 at the 2001 Census.
Although Portadown can trace its origins to the early 17th century, it was not until the Victorian era and the arrival of the railway that it became a major town. Portadown is known as “the hub of the North”, due to it being a major railway junction in the past; where the Great Northern Railway’s line diverged for Belfast, Dublin, Armagh and Derry.

Little is known of the area now called Portadown before 1610 except that the area was sparsely populated by Irish Gaels. The dominant local clann was the Mac Cana (McCanns),known as the “Masters of Clann-Breasil” (Clanbrasil), who had been in the area since the 13th century. The Mac Cana were a sept of the Uí Néill (Ó Neills). The stronghold referred to in the Irish name Port an Dúnáin was likely the stronghold of the Mac Cana.
From 1594 until 1603, the Uí Néill and an alliance of other clanns fought a Nine Years’ War against the English conquest of Ireland. This ended in defeat for the Irish clanns, and much of their land was seized by the English. In 1608, James I of England began the Plantation of Ulster – the organised colonisation of this land by settlers from Great Britain.
In 1610, the lands of Portadown were granted to a William Powell. In 1611, he sold his grant of land to a Reverend Richard Rolleston, who in turn sold it in two portions to Richard Cope and Michael Obins. Obins built a large tower house and bawn and settled about twenty English tenants on the land around it. This was in the area of the present-day People’s Park. Today this park is bounded on either side by Obins Street and Castle Street, both of which are reminders of “Obin’s Castle”.
In 1631, Obins was granted a licence for a “fair and market”, which led to the building of the first bridge across the River Bann shortly thereafter
