The year 1889 marks a significant point in the history of Gaelic games in Cookstown and Tyrone. It was then that the first ever G.A.A club in the town was established. Cookstown Owen Roe's as they were subsequently called were the pioneer club in county Tyrone, paving the way for the spread of Gaelic games elsewhere. Looking back from a modern perspective this was undoubtedly a momentous achievement for Cookstown gaels. When set amongst the social and political backdrop of the time, the emergence of a G.A.A club in the town was even more remarkable.
