Toome

4.6
Toome or Toomebridge, is a small village and townland on the northwest corner of Lough Neagh in County Antrim, Northern Ireland. It lies in the civil parish of Duneane in the former barony of Toome Upper, and is part of Antrim borough council. It had a population of 781 people in the 2011 Census.HistoryRoddy McCorley, a Presbyterian radical, was a local of the parish of Duneane. He fought as a United Irishmen in the Rebellion of 1798 against British rule in Ireland but was captured. He was executed on February 28, 1800, "near the bridge of Toome", which had been partially destroyed by rebels in 1798 to prevent the arrival of reinforcements from west of the River Bann. His body was then dissected by the British and buried under the road that went from Belfast to Derry. In 1852, when the road was being reconstructed, a nephew had McCorley's body exhumed and given a proper burial in an unmarked grave in Duneane. A memorial in honour of McCorley now stands in Toome as you enter the village from County Londonderry. His story became the subject of a popular song written in 1898 by Ethna Carbery.
