Site of old horse trough, Omagh

It was located along John Street at the boundary wall of Trinity Presbyterian church, but has long since been removed. There is a picture of it in Dr Haldene Mitchell's "Images of Omagh" book series and also "People of Trinity" book. In the latter it is described as being located at the Bottom of Fairmount Road. This was for the benefit of working horses that had just negotiated the steep hill from the station. The trough had replaced a well that was previously located in the grass bank before the O'Connor Terrace row of houses were built.
