Victorian Dungannon

The year is 1870. The Dungannon branch of the Belfast Bank has been trading for 16 years; the relocated Dungannon station for the Portadown, Dungannon and Omagh Junction Railway has been serving passengers for nine years; and St Anne’s Church of Ireland opened last year.

For this activity, pupils arrive at Ranfurly House (the Belfast Bank) and meet Miss Acheson, the governess to the bank manager’s children. She talks to the children about the lives of Dungannon children from all social backgrounds in 1870, discusses Dungannon’s distinctive buildings, and then shows the children around the bank before teaching them in a Victorian classroom.

When does the course start?
