The Kells Water river was widely used to power linen and other mills in the past. The water is still used in some industrial processes, such as in a dye works near Connor.

Bonnie Kellswater

Here's a health unto you bonnie Kellswater, it's there you'll get the pleasures of life,
It's there you'll get fishing and fowling, and a bonnie wee lassie for your wife.

The hills and the dales and low valleys, are all covered with linen so fine,
And the trees are a drooping sweet honey, and the rocks are all grown over with thyme.
