"Henry Osborne (1803-1859) was born in Derrynaseer, a townland of the parish of Dromore, Co. Tyrone.

His emigration to Australia in 1828/9 and his subsequent success as a pioneer and entrepreneur in his adopted country have been well-documented; in this article I propose to draw on various contemporary sources in an effort to depict the parish of Dromore that young Osborne left to go on his great adventure."

This article looks at the parish of Dromore, the parish that Henry Osborne, pioneer and entrepreneur in Australia, emigrated from.
