CALLING all O’Neills, O’Hagans, Donnellys, Devlins, Quinns, O’Kanes and Gormleys and many other family clans that had a role to play in the making of history on Tullaghoge fort.

On Sunday 4th August from 1pm to 5pm, The Northern Ireland Environment Agency (NIEA) is having another great gathering on Tullaghoge Fort where Living History characters will give an insight into the historic life at the Fort, site of inauguration of the O’Neill up until the 17th century.

There were many clans involved in the life of the fort and this is a great opportunity to find out a little bit about their lives. The characters will recall their way of life, the food they ate, their special feasts, what clothes they wore and the weapons they used.

NIEA archeologist Edith Logue said: ‘This is one of the most important archaeological sites in Northern Ireland that brings us directly back to the O’Neills and the Earldoms of Ulster. This Living History event will provide an insight into what life for the people who occupied Tyrone at this time’.

This event is free. For more information contact 028 2073 1938.

Access can be gained from the B162 Cookstown to Stewartstown Road.
