I have always been in anything historical and I have been to Tullaghoge fort twice. It is well signposted from both Stewartstown and Cookstown. When you get there the information boards tell you all you need to know. In September I was at a living history day were people dressed up as the Gaelic Irish at the time of Hugh... More
