Cookstown The Essential
Cookstown was once a major linen centre and is now a predominantly agricultural community, specialising in pig farming and dairy herds. Cookstown's most striking feature is its very broad main street, which under ten different names extends north from the River Ballinderry towards Slieve Gullion (528 m). Notable buildings include Holy Trinity Church (Catholic, 1860), the convent chapel (1965) and 18C courthouse.
