WELCOME TO
THE WEST TYRONE HISTORICAL SOCIETY
WEBSITE


The society has been in existence for over 30 years.

The society membership

West Tyrone Historical Society's members mostly come from Omagh and the surrounding villages and countryside. Omagh is the county town of Tyrone and other towns and villages include Strabane, Newtownstewart, Ardstraw, Castlederg, Fintona, Plumbridge, Gortin, Drumquin, Dromore, Trillick, Carrickmore and Beragh.

The society organises monthly lectures and occasional outings to places of historic interest. There is also an annual outing to more distant locations. The lectures are held at 8.00pm , usually on the last Wednesday of the month, at the Ulster American Folk Park near Omagh. New members are always welcome.

Membership of the society is open to everyone, especially those who are interested in the history, folklore and archaeology of the west Tyrone area.
