The border is the Lagan. North side = Antrim; South side = Down. I was born  when my family lived in in Saintfield = Down but the hospital was the Royal so actually in Antrim and that is what my Irish passport says

"The border is the Lagan. North side = Antrim; South side = Down."

So Gilnahirk and Dundonald are on the north side of the Lagan, are they?   When were they moved?

Newtownbreda is in Co Antrim, yet it is situated on the south side of the Lagan.

Newtownbreda and district are firmly in County Down, the county border being the Lagan. It’s common for many companies and mailing systems to describe “Belfast” all as being in County Antrim, and, since Newtownbreda has been swallowed up along with Carryduff and even Saintfield now, we all get called Antrim.
But we know best. :)
