Dungannon: Where I Live

Market Square, where a weekly market has been in existence since 1612; Ranfurly House, built in 1854 as the Dungannon branch of the Belfast Bank; the Reservoir Gateway, constructed by Dungannon Urban Council in 1909.

Three built heritage sites that help to tell the story of Dungannon, a town that can trace its history back at least 2,000 years to the time of Geanainn, to the highland rampart that gives the town its name. Dungannon: Where I Live is a learning activity which aims to assist school pupils to participate in learning outside the classroom by exploring their local built environment and heritage.

Pupils will:

  • Engage with historical facts relating to Dungannon’s built heritage through a guided tour of part of the town
  • Individually, and in small groups, make a study of a series of buildings, making notes and completing pupil worksheets
  • Engage with photos and artefacts relating to some of Dungannon’s older buildings.
