Holy Family Church, Plater’s Hill, Coalisland

The main and largest church in the parish is also the newest.  Holy Family Church was opened in 1980 to replace St. Mary & St Joseph’s, Brackaville Road which was too small to accommodate the growing population.  Holy Family Church was designed by Rooney & McConville architects and built by O’Neill & Brady.  The church is built of red brick made from clay quarried within the area.  It was opened on Sunday 11th May 1980 by Cardinal Tomas O’Fiaich.
