Fermanagh, the most westerly county of Northern Ireland, presents a blend of scenery, history and culture that makes it one of the most attractive of all Irish counties. With its many lakes, rivers and wooded islands, water is a predominant feature, covering 30% of the county, and this is reflected in the prevalence of fishing and the dominance of dairy over arable farming. The climate, too, leans to moistness, and the county’s green, lush quality is directly related to its comparatively high rainfall.
There is a saying that for half the year Lough Erne is in Fermanagh, and for the other half Fermanagh is in Lough Erne – a not altogether inaccurate description of the complex interaction of water and land in the county. Covering some 1,850 km2, Fermanagh has land boundaries with counties Tyrone, Donegal, Cavan, Monaghan and Leitrim. The 2011 population was approximately 68,000.
