Things to do: nightlife
Dungiven is a small town, townland and civil parish in County Londonderry, Northern Ireland. It is on the main A6 Belfast to Derry road. It lies where the rivers Roe, Owenreagh and Owenbeg meet at the foot of the 1525ft Benbradagh. Nearby is the Glenshane Pass, where the road rises to over 1000ft. It had a population of 2,993 people in the 2001 Census, an increase of 6% over 1991.FeaturesDungiven sprang up around Dungiven Castle and the Church of Ireland church at the eastern end of the town, later spreading westwards along Chapel Road and Main Street towards the bridging point on the River Roe. Because of the River Roe's flood plain and the line of a proposed by-pass, housing development has been mostly to the east and north of the town. It is an important service centre for the surrounding rural hinterland; offering educational, health, commercial, social, community and recreational facilities.HistoryAn interesting site in Dungiven is the 11th century Augustinian priory of St Mary's and the tomb of Ó Catháin (Cú Mhaighe na nGall ("Cooey-na-Gall") Ó Catháin), laid to rest in 1385. A thicket of thorn bushes hung with rags conceals a bullaun stone, visited for wart cures.
