We believe the photos was taken sometime in the early 1980’s during a fund raising event to raise money for the building of the Dromore West Community Center. We can put a name to most people in the picture but don’t be afraid to comment below or on the facebook page with who you think they are.
You guessed it, a big thanks to Blair Feeney once again for digging out this oldie. The changes in this one is incredible.
Another big thanks to Blair Feeney for providing the old photo used below of Browne’s Butchers. I took a photo yesterday and this morning at 7am trying to capture the same scene, but it is hard not to get cars in the photo now, but this is good in a way to show the different place Dromore West is now. Also in the shot is The Village Inn which of course is now The Still Bar and just out of shot is the old Coffee Shop. We can see Vanessa’s Coffee Shop in the present day shot. I am not quite sure the year the old photo was taking, so if anyone has an idea be sure to leave a comment. More photos coming soon.
A big thanks to Blair Fenney for providing the old photo used below of the Easkey corner. I took a photo today try to capture the same scene. Not quite sure the year the photo was in, so if anyone has an idea be sure to leave a comment. More photos coming soon.
Here is a nice shot of Feeney’s Shop and Pub from way back in 1995, that is 22 years ago now. I will try and get the same shot now to compare. There has been a lot of changes since this was originally taken.

Here is a photo of Dromore West, sadly not much info on who took it or when it was taking. One of our friends Michelle Hanley was kind enough to share with us. It is a scanned from an old postcard.
We’ve added to new pages to the site, a geography page and a local businesses page.
