Killyman (from Irish: Cill na mBan, meaning "church of the women")[1] is small village and a civil parish in Northern Ireland, situated on the eastern boundary of County Tyrone and extending into County Armagh. The majority of townlands are in the historic barony of Dungannon Middle in County Tyrone, the rest being in the barony of Oneilland West in County Armagh.[2]

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, [3]in the townland of Laghey.[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.[4]
