Things to do: sightseeing
Derrygonnelly is a small village and townland in County Fermanagh, Northern Ireland. Near Lower Lough Erne, the village was home to 594 people (at the 2001 Census) and dates to the Plantation era.The village has a long history of Irish traditional music and each year in early October there is a celebration of local talent in memory of musicians Eddie Duffy and Mick Hoy. Musicians come from all over Ireland and from further afield to enjoy this festival which bases itself in any of Derrygonnelly's four pubs.TransportUlsterbus route 59 provides several journeys a day to/from Enniskillen via Monea and The Graan. There is no Sunday service.HistoryDerrygonnelly was founded by General Archdale as a Plantation town. The area hosted fairs from the late 18th century but the village itself only really developed as late as 1812 when the long, flat main street was built along the Sillees River. The main road to Enniskillen was known as the Famine Road as it was made during the 1846 famine as a relief scheme.The townland of Derrygonnelly contains two Scheduled Historic Monuments: Dunbar manor plantation castle, grid ref: H11871 52475 and a 17th-century church, grid ref: H1208 5240.
