Mellon Centre for Migration Studies 21st Annual Irish Migration Studies Lecture

Twenty-First Annual Irish Migration Studies Lecture

Saturday 11 February 2023 at 11.00am

(On site:  Tea/Coffee and Registration from 10.30am)

 (In person and via Zoom)


Records and Roots: People and the Land in North-west Ulster


Guest Speaker:  Dr William Roulston


Although there have been significant social and economic changes in more recent times, the people of Ireland are still generally thought of in terms of their historic relationship with the land. In this talk, Dr William Roulston will draw on the experiences of his own farming ancestors in north-west Ulster over the last four centuries in exploring such themes as the relationship between landlord and tenant, land reform and migration. In doing so, he will highlight the wealth of documentation available, both in public archives and in private possession.


Dr William Roulston grew up on a farm in the Foyle Valley and his research interests and publications reflect his interest in the interaction between people and the landscape in this region over the last four hundred years. His books include: The Parishes of Leckpatrick and Dunnalong (2000), Restoration Strabane, 1660–1714 (2007), Three Centuries of Life in a Tyrone Parish: A History of Donagheady from 1600 to 1900 (2010) and Abercorn: The Hamiltons of Barons Court (2014). In 2022 he was the co-editor with Dr Liam Campbell and Dr William Burke  of Lough Neagh: An Atlas of the Natural, Built and Cultural Heritage. He was awarded a PhD in Archaeology by Queen’s University Belfast in 2004. He began working for the Ulster Historical Foundation in 1997 and has been its Research Director since 2006.

Patrick Feeney

Patrick Feeney was born to sing!

Patrick Feeney was born to sing and from the tender age of four he wanted to be on stage with his father who played in a local band. His phenomenal success, especially over the past few years, is summed up in three words from the title of Patrick’s first album, back in 2003 – that title says it’s all… Thanks to You. Its 16 years since the then teenager released that debut album, and while he has recorded countless songs since, he still lives by the motto that it’s thanks to you, the fans, that he is such a success today.

Dukes Ultra Premium Ice Cream

Dukes Ultra Premium Ice Cream is brought to you by a husband and wife duo, Jonny and Natasha who are true ice cream enthusiasts. When covid hit and the ice cream shops shut, to fulfil his ice cream cravings Jonny bought an ice cream maker and we started making ice cream. Many lockdown evenings and weekends where spent trying out different recipes and enjoying the ice cream we made. As the world and we emerged from lockdown, we shared our ice cream with some friends and family who to our surprise loved it as much as we did and as we returned to some of our much loved ice cream shops their ice cream just wasn’t the same as the ice cream we could make at home. After doing a bit of research, Jonny discovered we had in fact been making ultra premium ice cream, something to our knowledge not available in Northern Ireland. With this golden nugget of knowledge and with some help we created what we believe to be the highest quality ice cream possible, that we can not wait for you to try. Dukes Ice Cream Honesty Shop is open Daily from 10am to 10pm

Beaghmore Stone Circles

Discovered during peat cutting in the 1940s the site at Beaghmore consists of 7 stone circles. All of the rings are associated with cairns and a stone row runs towards these cairns.

It is possible that Neolithic occupation and cultivation preceded the erection of burial cairns and ceremonial circles and alignments: some irregular lines and heaps of boulders resembling field-fences or field-clearance may predate the ritual structures. At some stage peat started to form over the site, and it may conceivably be that the cairns and rows were erected in a futile propitiatory attempt to restore fertility to the soil by attracting back the fading sun.

Gortin Glen Forest MTB Trails

With a healthy blend of red and blue trails, Gortin’s natural inclination towards hills means riders will earn those epic views, and more importantly, over 14km of smooth flowy sections ideal for those looking to shred at speed or just get an epic introduction to the world of mountain biking.

With views from the top of Mullaghcarn and Ladies Viewpoint, you can be assured of the best seat in the house to enjoy the Sperrins.


A more gradual climb from the car park on a shared fire road brings you to a junction where you can choose from one of two blue trails.

You’ll either turn left and join The Roller Coaster – a section you can pick up some real speed on through the forest until some small turns and features near the bottom.

Or you can opt for Kelan’s Chase, where you’ll encounter another climb toward’s Ladies View Point before a long descent filled with fast flowy fun, tight corners and some short pedalling sections.


The trails are now open and riding well.



The main red section is where you earn those views – climb out of the bottom car park through the Glen until you reach the Mullaghcarn ascent.

From here it’s another short, sharp climb that rewards you for your efforts in incredible views of the Sperrins. Take a moment to enjoy them before dropping onto “The Mountain” – a flowy cascade of berms and switchbacks the lead into a super fast and open run.

After some tight corners, you’ll rejoin the forest in Sika’s Run in a series of moderate rock drops and steep descents, before reemering at the car park.

The River Run trail involves following the fire road for the blue trail from the car park, before turning left and joining the blue trail for a short period. You then break off right and enjoy another scenic descent through the forest, this time with the river on your right.


The trails are now open and riding well.

Michelle Butler Ceramics

Nestling in the shelter of the Sperrin Mountains, just north of Omagh, is a Stone Barn and Cottage.  The home of Tyrone Ceramicist Michelle Butler.  From her barn studio Michelle produces exquisite, rustic, original ceramics.

Michelle is a design graduate of The Falmouth School of Art.  Since graduation she has specialised in the design and production  of  Ceramics.  She has been producing her unique brand of Irish Ceramics since December 1998, when she started her business in the Omagh Enterprise Centre. Then in 2005, she established Sperrin Ceramics Studio in the refurbished Stone Barn at her home.

Michelle Butler Ceramics creates a unique range of handcrafted ceramic items from large pots to jewellery. Drawing inspiration from this beautiful rural location, Michelle has created a signature style with her Celtic Stone and Iron Stone collections that are highly sought after.

Michelle has developed a unique style which reconciles the influences of primitive Celtic Art and forms.  All pieces are hand crafted from a textured stoneware clay. Her signature finish of rich metallic oxide adds both depth and lustre.  The use of a variety of glazes adds to the pattern, relief and overall effect, creating ideal ceramic gifts.

Michelle’s Jewellery is an embodiment of all these influences in smaller exquisite forms.  A smoother whiter stoneware clay is used for these beautiful, smaller items to give increased detail and charm.
