    Approximately 4 miles from Strabane, and situated on the border is the village of Clady which derives its name from the Gaelic ‘claddagh’ meaning ‘the muddy bank of the river.’ The village is among one of the oldest in the district and was at one time an important bridging point across the Finn when access further down river across the great expanse of the Foyle was largely dependent on ferry travel. Clady was also an important ecclesiastical centre, being the location for the first Roman Catholic seminary to be established in the Diocese of Derry. The village has been pivotal in more recent times in giving profile to the district by acquiring fame in the All Ireland Top of the Town’s variety entertainment competition.
