Orangeberry Book of the Day - Fermanagh Gems by Dianne Ascroft


Among its many appealing features County Fermanagh in Northern Ireland has pleasing landscapes, a rich history and talented local artisans. Six gems have been selected to feature in this collection of articles: a natural wonder, enduring or innovative institutions and a gifted craftsman. Some are well-known, others might be called hidden gems; each deserves to be allowed to shine.

Each article is a snapshot of a Fermanagh place, institution or person at a significant moment in its existence. We will visit Marble Arch Caves on the twenty-fifth anniversary of the opening of its show cave, Belleek Pottery on its 150th anniversary, the Graan monastery during its centenary year, Headhunters Railway Museum at the end of its first decade and Frankie McPhillips, a craftsman who has carried on the Irish fly-tying tradition for the past thirty-five years.

Each of these articles was originally published individually in Ireland’s Own magazine.
