County Fermanagh

          Fermanagh, an inland county in the Province of Ulster.  Greatest length (N. W. and S. E.), 45 miles; greatest breadth (N. E. and S. W.), 29 miles; comprising an area of 714 square miles, or 457,195 acres, of which 289,228 are arable; 114,847 uncultivated, 6,155 in plantations, 210 in towns and 46,755 under water.  Lough Erne, its most attractive feature, extends from one extremity to the other for forty-five miles in a N.W. direction; it bisects the county, and is divided into Upper and Lower.  The Upper extends from Wattle Bridge to Enniskillen; the Lower from Enniskillen to Rosscor, where its waters are contracted and form the River Erne, which extends to the County Donegal and falls into the sea at Ballyshannon.  It is navigable through its whole extent to the fall at Belleek, within three miles of Ballyshannon, and a steamer of 20 horse power plies between Enniskillen and Beleek daily on the lower lake.  The soil is variable, heavy, and retentive of moisture, light and friable, and moorish.  Coal and iron ore are found in small quantities, and there are sand and limestone in abundance.  The trade in butter is considerable;  and the linen manufacture, of a coarse description, chiefly for domestic use, is carried on to a small extent.  The population in 1851 was 116,007, and in 1861, 105,768.  It is chiefly in Clogher diocese, with a small portion in that of Kilmore.  The only large town is Enniskillen.  The county returns three members to Parliament - two for the county - constituency, about 4,800; and one for Enniskillen borough - constituency, 250.  The Assizes are held in Enniskillen, where the County Prison is.  Quarter Sessions are held at Enniskillen and Newtownbutler.  The County Infirmary is in Enniskillen; and the District Lunatic Asylum, to which the county is entitled to send 21 patients, is at Omagh, County Tyrone.  The Union Workhouses are at Enniskillen, Lisnaskea and Lowtherstown. There are barrack stations at Enniskillen and Belleek.  The net annual value of property under the Tenement Valuation Act is 232,687.
