With a name meaning "the virgin plain", Omagh is a city in the county of Tyrone, Northern Ireland located where the Camowen and the Drumragh Rivers meet, only 55km away from Derry and 109.5km from Belfast. A somewhat small city of only 21,297 inhabitants, you will have plenty of chances to mingle with the locals when you get snowed in to a coworking venue in the winter months.
Apparently the town was established on the site where a monastery sat from the year 792, plus a Franciscan friary followed in the year 1464. During the 1641 Rebellion, it was a refuge for fugitives from the east of County Tyrone and it was supporters of William III (Prince of Orange) who later burnt the town to the ground, only for it to be rebuilt. Omagh itself may not be a tech hub, but Ireland is the world's largest exporter of software with numerous American high-tech companies investing massively into the country. It's home to the European (or regional) headquarters of companies such as Google, Microsoft, Apple, IBM and the list goes on. Numerous tech startups are making the global market sit up and take notice of the Emerald Isle, such as LogoGrab (image recognition technology), Soapbox Labs (voice recognition tech) and Popertee (connecting brands with vacant spaces for short-term retail) to name a few.
Omagh is where you may run into some long lost family member, as its estimated that over 80 million people of Irish descent live outside of Ireland, think about 34 million Americans and about half the population of Australia plus numerous other countries. A coworking venue may just be the place to look up your leprechaun roots, if you don't have more pressing work to do.
