1859: Dundonald

Continuing the series on the 1859 revival, I wanted to write about the experiences of the outpouring in the local area. Helpfully, Dr Paisley's book The "Fifty Nine" Revival has a lot of reports from areas across Ulster. Sadly, though, there's not much on Dundonald, so I'll quote it in full:

The revival in Belfast quickly spread to Carryduff, Dundonald and Castlereagh, adjacent districts in Co. Down. Eleven revival prayer meetings soon sprang up in Dundonald, and the number of converts increased rapidly.

If anyone has more information on what happened, then please do let me know.
