Brockagh


Brocagh[1] (Template:Etymology) is a village in County Tyrone, Northern Ireland. It is on the western shore of Lough Neagh, about 7 kilometres (4.3 mi) east of Coalisland and north of Washing Bay. It lies within the Dungannon and South Tyrone Borough Council area.[2]

Features

The village consists mostly of single dwellings and farm buildings, although some in-depth development has recently taken place to the north of Mountjoy Road and to the west of Ballybeg Road. Land adjacent to the Duckingstool River may be subject to flooding.[2]
