This is the final book in the Fermanagh In Sight series and in succession to northwest Fermanagh, southwest Fermanagh and Enniskillen and its surrounding, east Fermanagh is the focus of this book detailing the history, scenery and heritage of the archipelago of Upper Lough Erne and its charming towns and villages large and small such as Tempo, Newtownbutler, Lisnaskea, Brookeborough, Roslea, Derrylin, Kinawley, Lisbellaw, Belnaleck, Magheraveely and Florencecourt with a little dip into the historic towns of Clones and Swanlinbar just outside the county boundary. Rising above the southeast is the impressive shape of Cuilcagh Mountain where water from the southern slope flows underground until it emerges some miles away in the Shannon Pot, the traditional source of the River Shannon.

To name just two of the notable people descended from this part of Fermanagh Neal Armstrong, the first man on the Moon owes his ancestry to the Lisnaskea area and the famous literary Bronte sisters were originally before their name change Prunty’s from the Roslea area. Price £10. P&P£5.
