    Jackson Hall:
    This castle of Coleraine was on the west side
    of the Bann within the grounds of Jackson Hall, or the
    Manor House, and was a sore thorn in the side of the Iris h ;
    hence the Four Masters record that 1221 "The son of
    Hugh de Lacy came to Ireland without the consent of the
    King of England and joined Hugh O'Neill. Both set out
    to oppose the English of Ireland, and first they went to
    Coleraine where they demolished the castle." laccoun04olav_djvu.txt
