Strabane (Irish: An Srath Ban) is a town in the west of County Tyrone, Northern Ireland. The town lies just east of the border between the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland with the town of Lifford, County Donegal, across the River Foyle to the west. Strabane is the second-largest town in the county. It stands roughly half-way between Omagh and Derry and roughly half-way between Omagh and Letterkenny and has a population of 17,000 people. Lifford Bridge connects Strabane with Lifford. The River Mourne flows through the centre of the town, and meets the River Finn to form the River Foyle.
