Places in County Tyrone
Situated at the confluence of the Rivers Camowen and Drumragh, which join to form the River Strule, Omagh is a busy market town with a handful of historic Georgian buildings. Pick up a Town Trail leaflet from the tourist office. Sadly, for a long time to come, Omagh (An Óghmagh) will be remembered for the devastating 1998 car bomb that killed 29 people and injured 200.
Dungannon is a pleasant enough market town halfway between Cookstown and Armagh, worth a brief stop in passing if you want to do a spot of shopping. Killymaddy Tourist Information Centre (8776 7259; www.flavouroftyrone.com; 190 Ballygawley Rd; 9am-5pm Mon-Fri, 10am-4pm Sat & Sun) is at a caravan site 10km west of Dungannon on the A4 road towards Enniskillen.
