I drove up with my teenage daughter to Monaghan to see their exhibition about the Spitfire that crashed there in 1942. It's a small but very detailed display and very little of the Spitfire is on display but the exhibit doesn't suffer because of that....More

I bet my husband that we would be in and out in 15 minutes. I was so wrong! This is a great little museum with loads of local artefacts and a very interesting exhibition on the history of policing in Ulster. Well worth a visit

Such a range of artefacts in this museum. The system is easy to follow and clearly signposted. Takes about 40 minutes to cover the range. Don't miss the beautiful Cross of Clogher. The museum is free.
