Outdoor Interpretation

Tullaghoge Fort

Northern Ireland Environment Agency


Tullaghoge Fort, a royal power centre which came to historical prominence in the 11th Century, was a ceremonial seat for the Kings of Tyrone (Cenel nEogain, later to be known as ‘The O Neills’). 

Tandem designed and produced content for interpretive panels and lecterns which help to build anticipation as visitors of all ages journey up the hill towards the fort. These panels incorporated poetry produced in collaboration with local pupils, reflecting on the site’s significance.

We capitalised on the fort’s hilltop position by designing conceptual larger-than-life figures to appear on the horizon, immersing visitors in the story of the site in an atmospheric, evocative way. We also commissioned watercolour illustrations for the panels which incorporated these giant, elegant figures, reinforcing the link between the interpretive elements on site.
