Dungannon & South Tyrone Borough History Forum
Dungannon and South Tyrone Borough History Forum was formed in 2007 to commemorate a significant event in the area’s history, the Flight of the Earls. Local historical groups from across the borough came together to develop a programme of activities which commemorated the important historical events of 1607.
Members of the History Forum have continued to meet on a monthly basis to discuss ways in which local heritage can be developed and shared, disseminate information on local group activities, and timetable Forum events, conferences and presentations which all local groups and individuals can attend.

History On The Hill
History on the Hill - a Heritage Education programme designed specifically for Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 pupils, providing opportunities for the study of a series of local historical events which had international consequences and which still have resonances to this day.
History On The Hill combines history, puppetry, drama. Pupils take a tour of the permanent exhibition on The Flight of the Earls and the Plantation of Ulster (with study booklets for KS2 pupils/a Big Book for KS1 pupils). There follows an exploration of the Hill of The O’Neill, then either a specially written puppet show, or a drama workshop, which continues the themes of the exhibition. Time Steps will facilitate the drama aspects of this programme.
