Irish name: Tír Eoghain

County Tyrone (from Irish: Tír Eoghain meaning "land of Eoghan") is one of six counties that form Northern Ireland, situated in the north of the island of Ireland. Adjoined to the south-west shore of Lough Neagh, the county covers an area of 3,155 km², with a population of approximately 166,516, with its county town being Omagh. It is also one of the thirty-two counties of Ireland, lying within the historical province of Ulster.

Tyrone is the seventh largest of Ireland’s 32 counties in area and eighth largest in terms of population. It is the second largest of Ulster’s 9 counties in size and fourth largest in terms of population.

Historically Tyrone stretched as far north as Lough Foyle, and comprised part of modern day County Londonderry east of the River Foyle. The majority of County Londonderry was carved out of Tyrone between 1610-1620 when that land went to the Guilds of London to set up profit making schemes based on natural resources located there. Tyrone was the traditional stronghold of the various O'Neill clans and families, the strongest of the Gaelic Irish families in Ulster, surviving into the seventeenth century. The ancient principality of Tír Eoghain, the inheritance of the O'Neills, included the whole of the present counties of Tyrone and Derry, and the two baronies of Inishowen and Raphoe in County Donegal.
