Roman Catholic Church, Galbally.
Galbally (from Irish: Gallbhuaile, meaning "stone booley") is a hamlet and townland in County Tyrone, Northern Ireland. It is between Cappagh and Donaghmore. Its name was formerly spelt as Gallwolly and Gallwally.
The hamlet has one pub, a convenience shop, a church and a post office with an adjoining grocery shop. The local Gaelic football team is called Galbally Pearses.
Galbally is a mostly Irish nationalist/republican area and is strongly linked to The Troubles. Many Provisional Irish Republican Army volunteers came from Galbally and its hinterland. One of the 1981 hungerstrikers, Martin Hurson, is from the area and is buried at St John's Church in Galbally. Also buried there are two of the Loughgall Martyrs, Declan Arthurs and Seamus Donnelly, while Tony Gormley is buried in Aughnagar. Another local Loughgall Martyr, Eugene Kelly, is buried in nearby Altmore. Martin McCaughey, who was killed at Loughgall in 1990 was laid to rest in same plot as the Loughgall Martyrs.
Despite the area's documented links to republicanism, Unionist MP Sylvia Hermon was born in and raised in Galbally.
