Coalisland, is a delightful little strip situated in the Mighty county of Tyrone in the North of Ireland.
One of the main features of this fantastic town; is the former RUC station situated in the cenre of the town or 'village', adjacent to Fabio Landi's (a must stop for eats!) -and O Neill's REAL Irish bar (formerly "The Venue" and hosts to such mammoth acts as: pOcKeT pRoMiSe- one of Irelands steadily emerging talents (you can find them on myspace.com)
If you are lucky enough to have ventured to this quaint little village; and have your snaps of the police station taken- fear not- you will find your self only an Asses roar from Gervins bar and pool hall- the birth place, and development ground of Dennis Taylor; the 1985 World Snooker Champion (see google images-how could you forget those glasses...)
Having steeped yourself in the finest Coalisland has to offer, why not take a spin or a 'stage' out to Ardboe (Gaelic for 'Tall Cow' ... I Know- un-believeable!) home to Brad pitt in the hollywood movie Devils Own [1997 Alan J Pakula] (...I'm from a small fishing village outside Cookstown...') When there why not try to get a glimpse of one of the Mc Guigan's- the finest footballing family in the Country.
If you're coming to Coalisland, be sure to book your tickets early, busses run regularly from Dungannon- but you may have to stand if you get caught in a school run...
Ladies and gentlemen... I give you Coalisland!
