Omagh history

Omagh History photo

Omagh is an anglicisation of the Irish name an Óghmaigh, meaning “the virgin plain” A monastery was apparently established on the site of the town about 792, and a Franciscan friary was founded in 1464. It served as a refuge for fugitives from the east of County Tyrone during the 1641 Rebellion. James II arrived at Omagh in 1689, en route to Derry. Supporters of William III, Prince of Orange, later burned the town.

The Troubles

Omagh came into the international focus of the media on 15 August 1998, when the Real Irish Republican Army exploded a car bomb in the town centre. 29 people were killed in the blast – 14 women (including one pregnant with twins), 9 children and 6 men. Hundreds more were injured as a result of the blast.
