Lying between the tranquillity of the shores of Lough Neagh and the grandeur of the Sperrins, the Cookstown area is an artist’s paradise. For many years the chieftains of the O’Neill dynasty, the Kings of Ulster, were crowned at Tullyhogue Fort just outside the town. Cookstown today is a bustling market town imbued with a strong sense of history.
In this series of 31 paintings well-known artist John Haggan perfectly captures the rich diversity of the area, its rivers, mountains, towns and villages while the words of renowned local historian Eddie McCartney bring to life the fascinating history of the place and its people.
