The people of the Sperrins for their heritage and culture…even by Irish standards, they are renowned for their special warmth and hospitality.
Glasgowbury Festival '2010
Annual Music Festival
Paddy Glasgow's organisational skills continued to grow apace, with nearly fifty bands featuring this year across four stages.
"We had a fantastic time up among the mountains with the rest of you on Saturday for the biggest small festival around!" (Review courtesy of BBC ATL)
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 pre-date 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.

All about the Food
Reviewed 25 September 2011
My wife and I enjoyed an overnight stay at the apparo which we purchased under a living social offer. We had an evening meal and breakfast during our stay and found the food to be wonderful, the staff where helpful and polite. Our room was on a first floor courtyard which was quite novel, it was a simple room plainly decorated spotlessly clean with a really comfortable bed and excellent bathroom with a very powerful shower. There is a nice walk in the town, entrance near the roundabout below the church.
Stayed September 2011, travelled as a couple
