DUNGANNON legend holds that a number of secret tunnels built in the Middle Ages run from Castle Hill in the centre of town to various sites in the surrounding hinterland including Benburb, Castlecaulfield and even Galbally.
The entrance to the tunnels has been closed for decades and one by one a small handful of people who explored the tunnels in their childhood are passing away.
Now, one of the few remaining survivors has revealed to the Tyrone Times the medieval secrets he discovered as a child, including an ancient sword of which he is now the guardian.
Meanwhile a Facebook campaign has been launched to have the tunnels opened and properly investigated by archaeologists.
Numerous visitors to the site have added their call to have one of Dungannon’s most enduring mysteries finally examined in the cold light of day.
