Ballysaggart Lough or Black Lough (Irish: Loch Bhaile an tSagairt / Loch Dhubh) is a lough in Dungannon, County Tyrone, Northern Ireland. It is part of the waterway created to service mills in nearby Moygashel.[1]

In 2002 a man drowned after getting into difficulties swimming across it.[2]

The Ballysaggart Environmental Group was formed in 2004 to protect the unique habitat in and around the Lough.
