About

Dungannon and South Tyrone Borough Council (Irish: Comhairle Buirge Dhún Geanainn agus Thír Eoghain Theas, Ulster Scots: Rathgannon an Sooth Owenslanngh Cooncil) is a local council in Northern Ireland. It is set to merge with Cookstown District Council and Magherafelt District Council in May 2015 under local government reorganisation in Northern Ireland to become Mid-Ulster District Council.

Its main town is Dungannon, where the council is headquartered. The council area covers the southern part of County Tyrone (along with a small area of County Armagh) and has a population of nearly 58,000. Apart from Dungannon there are many smaller towns including: Augher, Clogher, Fivemiletown, Ballygawley, Caledon, Aughnacloy, Benburb, Moy and Coalisland.

The district was originally named Dungannon, and took its present name on November 25, 1999, after petitioning the Secretary of State for the Environment.
