So earlier today I was in the lakeland county of Fermanagh, on what turned out to be a nice enough day. It was work, though, so the morning was spent in Lisnaskea, doing more of the interviews for the research report... On the way home, though, I decided to call into Ennsikillen, because if you're up that far, then you might as well go to Kathleen's island.

The weather on the way to Fermanagh had been rough, with one shockingly heavy shower in Fivemiletown (which, it turns out, is actually six miles away from Clogher... but there are 5 Irish miles to 6 English miles, so it is named appropriately enough!). but the sun came out, and it was quite bright... right enough to bring on another of my eyes-watering-can-do-nothing-for-a-few-minutes things.

The highlight of the visit was the Enniskillen Castle - with its displays on the history of the Inniskilling Regiment, and the earlier Maguire dynasty in Fermanagh. Well worth a visit! And cheap too - at only £2.75 for adults, although it was £2.20 for students! Then home again - and in just about 2 hours, which wasn't bad going, with a lorry broken down on the A4 between Ballygawley and Dungannon!
