Donaghmore Historical Society was established
in 1983 with membership open to any persons supporting
the objects of the society.
The Objects of the Society are:
|The study of and encouragement of public interest
in the history, folklore, archaeology and antiquities
of the region in and around Donaghmore.
|The publication of research papers
on the above topics and to establish a society archive.
The Donaghmore Historical Society meets on a regular
basis to research, document, preserve and share information
in regards to its interest. Currently the Society is
housed in a converted National School (1885) and offers
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.
A yearly programme of public meetings are held on a
monthly basis where individuals within in the community
present their own interpretations of historic events,
townland studies and many topics of yesteryear to very
Townland Research facilities, archives and personal
guidance from members who have a wealth of experience
are available at the Heritage Centre, Pomeroy Road,
Donaghmore, Co. Tyrone.
