The Strule forms at the confluence of the Drumragh and Camowen rivers in the centre of Omagh. It is a big river (20 meters plus in width) and runs northwards for almost 20 kilometres (12 miles). The Strule is bounded by rich pasture and occasional cereal crops. Along its length it is joined by the Fairy Water and the Owenkillew before meeting the Derg below Newtownstewart to form the River Mourne.
