Early Church sites in the Omagh Area
This FREE historical talk by Vincent Brogan explores early Church sites in the Omagh area. Church ruins are often the only historical buildings and sites which have survived over the centuries. Such sites have a particular significance for all sections of the community as they continued to be used for burials long after they ceased to be used as places of worship. Because of their affinity to the people as a place of burial they have remained largely undisturbed and are a place of quiet reflection. However, the ravages of time have taken their toll and they deserve a better future. This talk will reflect on the stories connected with these sacred places and seek to identify for them a place in the modern era.
