About Donaghmore Historical Society

About Us

The Dungannon Workhouse project aims to document the experiences of those who lived and died here during the Great Famine.

Founded in 1983, Donaghmore
Historical Society meets regularly to share, preserve and document the history of Donaghmore and the surrounding area in Co Tyrone.

Townland Research facilities, archives and personal guidance from members who have a wealth of experience are available at the Donaghmore Heritage Centre (a converted National School built 1885).

Here, we offer a place for researchers and interested parties to take a step back in time through their collection of photographs, old school roll books, land registration ledgers, documents and artefacts of local interest including townland maps.

This project would not have been possible without the assistance of Mid Ulster Council.
