Singin In The Rain – The Musical presented by Hazel Wand

This Summer a group of talented young people will delight the Omagh audience with this ICONIC musical.

Journey back to the glamour of Hollywood during the roaring 20’s.

Silent movie star Don Lockwood has it all, a string of hit films and a studio-engineered romance with the most beautiful actress in town. What Don doesn’t know is that the silver screen is about to find its voice, and a chance meeting with a talented young chorus girl set to steal his heart promises to change both Don, and Hollywood, forever!

Singin’ in the Rain features a glorious score including Good Morning, Make ‘em Laugh, Moses Supposes and the legendary Singin’ in the Rain.

Cairn Sunday at Mullaghcarn

The annual Cairn Sunday walk is on Sunday 28th July 2024 at Gortin Glen Forest Park, Co Tyrone.  People will be undertaking the yearly tradition of walking to the summit of Mullaghcarn Mountain, for this year’s ‘Cairn Sunday’.

The annual walk takes place on the last Sunday in July, and this year will be no different – walkers will once again be joined by their ‘Giant’ friend  The Guardian of the Sperrins to greet them when they reach the peak!

The giant sculpture at Mullaghcarn is one of a series of giants in the Sperrins. The walk will start from the forest cafe at 10am, and everyone is welcome.

The walk will start at the ‘Trail Head’ information panel, beside the Cafe building, and will follow the purple waymarked ‘Mullaghcarn Trail’ signs. The walk will take around three hours and is a moderate walk.

Friends of the Glens will meet at forest cafe Brie’s Barista Bar at 10am and will walk the Mullaghcarn Trail to the summit to visit the Giant on the Cairn. Parking is free at the main carparks and toilets are available beside the forest cafe.

Walkers can start their walk anytime at the ‘Trail Head’ information panel, beside the forest cafe, and follow the waymarked ‘Mullaghcarn Trail’ signs.

The walk is on a tarmac and gravel terrain, and is a  moderate walk,  but it should be noted that the trail’s gradient can be quite challenging, particularly towards the end of the route. Dogs are very welcome, but owners should keep them on a lead.

The tradition of climbing to the top of Mullaghcairn is thought to date back over 1,000 years. Cairns have been used from Prehistoric times to present. The act of adding a stone to the cairn, is a deep rooted tradition, that by adding this rock you are preserving the integrity of the cairn, referencing the age-old practice of people, over generations, carrying stones to the summit to add to the cairn there. It is believed that the cairn marks a place regarded of great religious significance; perhaps a burial place. The practice of climbing Mullaghcairn is likely to have had a pagan origin; historians detail how people sought to be closer to their gods.

The introduction of Christianity saw the nature of the arranged climb to the top of Mullaghcarn become an annual day of pilgrimage. Blueberry Sunday’ as it was to be known was marked by participants performing religious practices at the summit. Through time, ‘sports days’ became a feature there. Activities including berry picking, eating and drinking, singing and dancing enhancing what had become a notable annual occurrence. The pilgrimage and subsequent festivities appealed to all age groups.

Notably, there were those who regarded attendance an ideal ‘courting’ or matchmaking’ opportunity; it was a place where lasting good relationships began!

In 1997, 300 hardy participants climbed Mullaghacarn on the last Sunday of July. In doing so, they revived a tradition that had been lost in time. ‘Cairn Sunday’, as it is now known, is about more than participating in a physical activity; it brings a community and its visitors together in the beautiful picturesque Gortin Glen Forest Park landscape.
