The Ulster-American Folk Park, outside Omagh, Co.Tyrone, is a fascinating experience, portraying the lifestyles of Ulster men and women who lived in the area and emigrated to the United States in the early 1800s. It is located on the grounds of the former Mellon Family farm, of Carnegie Mellon fame. I loved the juxtaposition of the American farmstead rail fences with the Irish foliage.
