St Andrew's Church (Church of Ireland), Killyman

Killyman (Irish: Cill na mBan, meaning "church of the women") is a civil parish in Northern Ireland, situated on the eastern boundary of County Tyrone and extending into County Armagh. 37 of its 43 townlands are in Tyrone; the River Blackwater separates the two counties. It contains the small, predominantly Protestant, settlement of Killyman proper, which lies some 4 km (2.5 mi) southeast of Dungannon and immediately south of the M1 motorway.[1]

The settlement, which developed around a crossroads on the road from Belfast to Dungannon, consists mainly of a number of single dwellings, although there has also been some in-depth housing development in recent years. Local facilities include a small number of shops, primary schools and churches. Mortimer O'Sullivan was the Church of Ireland rector here in the 1830s.[2]
