The Little Book of Tyrone

A Dungannon librarian has launched a history book entitled The Little Book of Tyrone.

Cathal Coyle , who works at St Patrick’s College, Dungannon has lived and worked in the county all his life and is an expert on the area’s local history, culture and folklore.

The Little Book of Tyrone is a compendium of fascinating, obscure and entertaining facts about this much-loved county.

Published as part of the popular Little Book of series by the History Press, it is illustrated with thirty original line drawings.

Here you will find out about Tyrone’s myth and legend, its proud sporting heritage, its castles and great houses and its famous (and occasionally infamous) men and women.

Through quaint villages and bustling towns, this book takes the reader on a journey through County Tyrone and its vibrant past.
