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.

BLUE TRAIL DESCRIPTION

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.

CONDITIONS

The trails are now open and riding well.

 

RED TRAIL DESCRIPTION

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.

CONDITIONS

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.

Vinegar Hill Loop

This 7 mile walk provides a taster of what the Sperrins have to offer, rolling hills, lush green valleys and a snapshot of rural life.

Start from Barnes Gap car park in Glenelly Valley clearly marked from Gortin and the B47. The car Park was once the site of The Barnes National School. Toilets available.

This route is fully marked with way marked posts and directional arrows. It follows the same line as the Craignamaddy Route for some time but leaves it just after Scotch Town cross roads.The route follows The Craignamaddy Route and The Ulster Way at a small stand of coniferous trees at Garvagh.

From the car park follow the finger post sign for the Craignamaddy Circuit across the road proceeding uphill to the top of the gap. Just over the brow of the hill a left turn leads to a gravel lane that contours Mullaghbolig.

Continue on this track and descend into the Owenkillew Valley past Vinegar Hill on your right hand side. Pass through a farmyard onto a tarred road. Turn right and continue straight through Scotch Town cross roads until the next turn right. The Craignamaddy route turns right up this lane but Vinegar Hill route continues on straight.

At the next cross roads follow two way marked posts and continue up hill through farm buildings on each side of the road. At the next junction continue straight on to Garvagh and a small stand of coniferous trees. Turn right and rejoin the Craignamaddy and Ulster Way routes along a gravel lane. This lane continues on to meet a tarred road, turn left and you are back at Barnes Gap. You can take the high road or the low road back to the car park.

The route jointly facilitated by Omagh and Strabane District Councils. For further information contact Omagh TIC Tel – 028 8224 7831 or Strabane TIC Tel – 028 7138 4444.

Robbers Table

An excellent off-road hill walk opening up views of the Bluestack and High Sperrin Mountain ranges.

Park at Gortin Glen Forest Park. Exit the Park, cross the road and turn first right onto the Lisnaharney Road.

At the 5th road junction on the right hand side, leave the road and walk uphill along the Lisnaharney public right of way.

From the top of the hill descend to the road, turning left at the bottom.

Walk along the road until turning left again onto the Eskeradooey public right of way. This path leads to the top of the hill and then descends back to the Lisnaharney Road.

Loughmacrory & Murrins District Angling Association

This Angling Club is open for everyone to join. We have very exciting plans for the future which we believe will help transform the lough into one of the top fishing destinations in the country. The 53 acre lough is home to Wild Brown Trout, Eels, Pike, Perch and stocked Triploid Rainbow Trout. We have three fishing jetties on the lough for anglers ad all legal methods are permitted from the shore. Flyfishing only is available from boats and all boat users must be over 18 and wear life jackets. No exceptions!
We have six 19 foot Sheelin boats and three 17 foot Morris boats. Oars and electric motors only permitted due to our Lough being a public water source.

The club has a very strong Committee, with experts from a wide range of fishing-related fields. The club also has a junior committee, and we are delighted with the level of interest in fishing from the younger members of the community. In the future you can expect to see angling academies, competition events and more works done to make the lough more accessible for fishing. Loughmacrory lough is an ideal destination for anglers with physical impairments, as the jetties can be utilised by wheelchair users and 2 new ones will be completed soon which are fully compliant with BDAA regulations

We plan to run coaching sessions and have 5 Level 1 Angling Coaches who are a welcome addition to our club.
Anyone wishing to put thier own boat on will have to comply with very strict rules set down by NI Water Service and should contact the Secretary on lamdaasecretary@gmail.com for further info.

All anglers must be advised that it is now illegal to fish the lough without a permit, and a rod licence. We have three warranted bailiffs and the Loughs Agency now patrol the site to ensure that the marine life are protected, and that no illegal fishing is taking place. Rod licences and permits can be purchased in Ward’s shop in Loughmacrory village.

The fishing season runs from the 1st of March to 20th of october, and a bag limit of 2 rainbow trout exceeding 9 inches must be adhered to. All other species of fish must be released as gently as possible.

Garvaghey GAA Centre

Garvaghey (from the Irish, ‘Garbh Achaidh … The Rough Field’) was visioned, planned and built as a ‘Tyrone Gaelic Bauhaus’, a place to develop and celebrate in joined-up ways the people, games, culture, heritage and environment of Gaelic Tyrone. It’s about using our past and present to create a strong and robust future. It’s a place for building social capital, ‘the glue that holds society together’.

Our £7m project spread over 43-acres in the heart of upland rural Tyrone was developed between 2008 and 2013.

Tyrone Roots

Vincent Brogan can help you find out more about your Irish Roots. He is an Member of AGI, the accrediting body for genealogists in Ireland. If you plan to visit I can make your stay much more enjoyable. As well as offering a research service to discover your family background, I am able to offer a guiding package tailored to your individual interests. I am a native of Omagh, the County Town of Tyrone, and have been researching my own family history for over 40 years. I cover all of Ireland and have special knowledge of the 9 counties of Ulster. Researching your genealogy in Ireland can be a rewarding experience but also frustrating due to the loss of records and it is necessary to be creative in using census substitutes. My local knowledge and contacts have proved invaluable in tracking down those lost cousins and the ancestral homestead.

I offer a bespoke service which will meet your needs when travelling to Ireland. I will advise on all aspects of your trip, including providing you with detailed information to enable you to make decisions to meet your interests. Airport pick up can be arranged and using a local driver will take away any worries you may have about driving in Ireland.

All types of accommodation can be arranged from luxury hotel, self catering and homely bed and breakfast. Visits can be arranged to attractions of your choice, with a knowledgeable personal guide at hand. This includes Belfast where the Titanic was built, Ulster American Folk Park or archaeological sites such as Beaghmore Stone Circle complex can be included. L’Derry, with its famous walls and history, is well worth a visit. Other attractions such as the Giants Causeway, Bushmills Distillery and the beaches and mountains of Donegal are within easy reach.

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 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.

Creggan Wood Walk

As you approach An Creagán visitor complex turn left and walk up the slope between the large stones at the beginning of the route. As you come to the brow of this incline you will have a view to your left across Creggan Bog. This is small piece of undeveloped raised bog which is home to unique colonies of plants including 14 different types of sphagnum moss, cranberry, crowberry, bilberry and the insect eating sundews, amongst others. A gravel path leads you along the edge of this bog with a short boardwalked outshot giving you the chance to get out into the midst of this soft, peaty landscape without getting your feet wet. Continuing along the gravel path you will notice to your right the hollowed out landscape of a decommissioned gravel quarry.

As you carry on up a further incline you will enter the forest. Around half a kilometre into the forest you will notice the clear-felled area to the right which has started to regenerate from the seed dropped into the soil from the mature trees before they were removed. The felling allows a view across to Sawel, the highest peak of the Sperrin mountains in the distance. The occasional standing dead tree trunk provides a perch for passing raptors. Carrying on past this clear-felled area you will come to a cross roads.

Continue straight ahead for a further kilometre through the densest part of the forest where you will emerge to a landscape of open bogland and the sound of Glassagh Burn, draining water from the spongy landscape. Pausing here you will see a rocky outcrop known as Cashel. The path leads round to the left following the meander of the burn and the edge of the forest to your left. The main road will slowly come into earshot now and the path turns to take you back in an easterly direction. You will come to a left-hand bend now which takes you away from the main road and back into the forest where you will shortly return to the cross-roads encountered earlier. Take right here to retrace your steps back to the start

Hunter West Mobile Activity Centre

Hunter West offers the casual shooting enthusiast and the complete beginner a fun day with enough challenge to get the adrenalin running but not enough dirt to even get your shoes scuffed! We can also increase the degree of difficulty if any of you more serious shooting folk want to have a go. We have staff trained and qualified in first aid, protection of children and vulnerable adults plus the shooting disciplines we offer.

Our philosophy is simple boys and girls. “Get off your couch and shoot some real guns and bows” and forget about the computer virtual reality types. Hunter West is reality and the targets are real (good fun) . We have everything from bouncing rabbit clays to 10 green beer bottles and 3-D wild animal life-size models.

We are adding to these as our imagination leads us and if you want to suggest some quirky targets of your own we will try to incorporate them within what is allowed and provided they are in the best possible taste! We have a base at the clay pigeon range at “Peadar Joe’s Farm” near An Cregan which lies sort of midway between Cookstown and Omagh on the A505 but we do not offer regular shoots here as we are constantly on the move.

Our clients range from corporations and firms wishing to offer staff a challenge or reward, through outdoor activity and conference providers adding a bit of new talent to their own offers, to the growing youth market wherein schools, voluntary NGOs and community/club sports bodies are seeking something different to challenge their young folk. And “We come to you”, any where, any time and we positively guarantee you will enjoy the experience (with all those weapons who’s going to argue with us anyway!?).

An Creagan, Forest and River Trail

An Creagán Forest & River Trail provides a safe and friendly place to enjoy your daily exercise and de-stress in a uniquely tranquil and picturesque environment.

This walk is part of the Highway to Health Scheme – a simple and innovative scheme which aims to encourage people of all ages to walk for leisure and good health. It uses pole signs at one kilometre intervals on an established route.

Route

As you approach An Creagán visitor complex turn left and walk up the slope between the large stones at the beginning of the route. As you come to the brow of this incline you will have a view to your left across a 22 acre (9 hectare) remnant of the once much larger Creggan Bog. This is small piece of undeveloped raised bog which is home to unique colonies of plants including 14 different types of sphagnum moss, cranberry, crowberry, bilberry and the insect eating sundews, amongst others. A gravel path leads you along the edge of this bog with a short boardwalked outshot giving you the chance to get out into the midst of this soft, peaty landscape without getting your feet wet. Continuing along the gravel path you will notice to your right the hollowed out landscape of a decommissioned gravel quarry. Closed since the 1960s it is now populated by willow and birch with a system of ponds running through the quarry floor. These are home to the protected smooth newt as well as our common frog who puts on rather a spectacle during the spawning season when they gather in their hundreds in search of a mate.

As you carry on up a further incline you will enter the marginal forest which is home to spruce and pine that have spilled over from the adjacent plantation as well as naturally seeded rowan and willow, amongst the heathers, ferns and mosses taking advantage of the damp shade. You carry on through this terrain for half a kilometre before entering the Creggan Forest along the access road. The Sitka Spruce here are planted as a commercial crop, first established in the 1940s and ‘50s to satisfy increasing demands for timber. As they come to maturity sections are felled by forest service and depending on the quality are destined for use in construction, agriculture, paper production or as fuel. As you progress along the forest road the density of planting becomes apparent with the occasional firebreak allowing light to reach the forest floor. This scrubby oasis is ideal cover for woodcock who are often stirred into noisy flight if you venture along these forest rides during the short winter evenings. Around half a kilometre into the forest you will notice the clear-felled area to the right which has started to regenerate from the seed dropped into the soil from the mature trees before they were removed. The felling allows a view across to Sawel, the highest peak of the Sperrin mountains in the distance. The occasional standing dead tree trunk provides a perch for passing raptors which include buzzards, sparrowhawks and the brown long-eared owl. A search around the base of one of these trees can reveal the leftovers of their meals in the form of pellets – the regurgitated remains of shrews, mice and small birds compacted into cigar shaped packages! Carrying on along pass this clear-felled area you will come to a cross roads.

Continue straight ahead for a further kilometre through the densest part of the forest where you will emerge to a landscape of open bogland and the sound of Glassagh Burn, draining water from the spongy landscape. Pausing here you will see a rocky outcrop known as Cashel – a name referring to it’s ancient use as a hillfort and common in place names throughout the country. The path leads round to the left following the meander of the burn and the edge of the forest to your left. The open countryside here often allows sightings of ravens with their croaky call and playful flight. Feral goats are also encountered here and throughout the Sperrins where they have successfully bred and made themselves at home. The main road will slowly come into earshot now and the path turns to take you back in an easterly direction. The forest of spruce and occasional stands of lodgepole pine is on your left and remnant bog on your right. The overgrown remains of turf banks can be seen scattered throughout the bog given away only by the straight lines of heather plants and the slight change in level of the ground – evidence of a past use for this land and the skill of hand cutting turf which is nigh extinct. The mounded banks of peat along the edge of this path are home to massive colonies of the insect eating sundew plant whose sticky secretions can be seen glistening in the summer sun, just waiting to catch some ill-fated prey. The bog cotton and bog asphodel dwell here also, providing seasonal interest to the walker. The common lizard can often be seen from the path here, basking on the sun warmed turf. You will come to a left-hand bend now which takes you away from the main road and back into the forest where you will shortly return to the cross-roads encountered earlier. Take right here to retrace your steps back to the marginal, scrubby forest. When you come to a fork take left which will return you towards the visitor centre by an alternative route. At the next junction take another right followed shortly by a left which will take you through the middle of the old gravel quarry. You will emerge in An Creagán community garden area passing the play park and duck pond before coming to the courtyard of the visitor complex and back to the carpark where you began your journey.

Omagh Riverside Path to Gortnagarn

Starting from Cranney Fields car park in Omagh, this 5.5 mile, flat linear cycle route uses a section of National Cycle Network 92 long distance route. Pedalling along the Camowen River, you pass through Lover’s Retreat, an outstanding beauty spot where herons nest in summer and fish leap upstream to the Sperrins. Pedal over a small wooden bridge onto Privet Road which crosses the busy A505. Enter the leisure centre grounds and continue out of Omagh, alongside Grange Park. It’s tranquil, leafy and very popular with walkers and local skaters. The “Wishbone” sculpture by local artist Niall Laird, is a recent addition to the park. The path continues off-road adjacent to the B48 all the way out to Gortnagarn in the foothills of the Sperrins. From here it’s only a short distance to the Ulster American Folk Park, documenting Irish Emigration and celebrating our Ulster American connections, set within a unique village recreating 19th Century life.

Omagh Golf Club

Omagh Golf Club is a pleasant parkland course with 9 holes on either side of the main Dublin Road. A good test for both low and high handicap players, Omagh’s feature holes are the eighth, a 377m dogleg par 4 and the eleventh, a 380m par 4, which follows the

River Drumragh. Extensive drainage work has enabled play virtually all the year round and ensures the fairways are in as good a condition as the excellent putting surfaces.
