Moneymore

Moneymore is a village and townland in County Londonderry, Northern Ireland. It had a population of 1,369 in the 2001 Census.It is an example of a Plantation village in Mid-Ulster. It was the first town in Ulster to have piped water.GeographyMoneymore lies in a glen. The Ballymully River flows through the southern part of the village. The river rises on a large hill, Slieve Gallion (one of the Sperrins), which has a radio tower on top. The village is about 35 miles from the sea to the north.HistoryThere was an important battle fought near Moneymore called the battle of Móin Daire Lothair in the year 563 between the Northern Ui Neill and the Cruithin tribe which the Northern Ui Neill won. This battle is recorded in the Annals of Ulster and would have been a major event at the time. Much of Great Britain and Ireland would have descent from these two groups as there was notable mixing with Scotland over the years and the Ui Neill split to form the Southern Ui Neill in the Irish midlands around this time.
