Features

The proximity of the village to the recently completed Limavady by-pass has improved accessibility not only to Limavady town, but also to Derry and Coleraine. Artikelly is the largest hamlet in the Limavady Borough Council area, but it has a limited range of retail and recreational facilities. It consists of a number of housing clusters along Dowland Road and is dominated by the Lilac Avenue public authority housing estate.

History

In the Plantation of Ulster the Haberdashers' Company were granted an estate of 36.1 square miles. They made their ‘capital’ at Ballycastle or Ballycaslan, near Aghanloo, and a second settlement at Artikelly.

People

William Porter (1805-1880) was born in Artikelly. He was called to the Bar in 1831, and in 1839 was appointed Attorney General at the Cape. He was offered a knighthood and Premiership of the Cape, both of which he declined. He endowed a university there and was its first chancellor. In 1873 he returned to Ireland. He died in Belfast.
