Annaghmore, County Tyrone

Origin

Ir. Eanach Mór 'great marsh or bog'

Background

The townland of Annaghmore lies one mile south-east of Coalisland, west of Annaghnaboe. The earliest reference is Annaghmore in 1609. It is not noticeably boggy there now but in its south-west corner there is an area named THE MOOR from which is named THE MOOR BRIDGE and the MOOR ROAD, as well as the small housing developments MOOR GARDENS and MOOR VILLAS. There are no fewer than twenty-four Irish townlands named Annaghmore or Annagh More, including Annaghmore in the parish of Arboe and Annaghmore in the parish of Duneane which borders Lough Neagh a short distance south of Toome.
