About Tullaghoge Fort

Tullaghoge Fort was a royal power centre which came to historical prominence in the 11th Century when it was a dynastic centre and inaugural place for Cenel nEogain (later the O’Neills).  From its hilltop position, it commands wide views of the area and is visible for miles around.                                                                                                           

The widow of the planter, Robert Lindsey was living here in 1619, but the site was abandoned by 1622.                                                                                              

The entrance is on a difficult corner, with a small car park at the foot of the hill, from which an uphill path leads to the site.
