      ENNISKILLEN PARISH AND TOWN
      http://www.ajmorris.com/dig/toc/_01feek.htm

      This history by W. H. Dundas was written in a style that
      genealogists are likely to appreciate, being packed with names,
      tombstone inscriptions, and even extracts from the parish
      register, and names from the Hearth Money rolls, clergy,
      curates, church wardens, the lists of names go on and on. But
      the history, political and social development of the area is not
      neglected, going back to a time when only a castle stood on the
      site along the narrows between Lough Erne and the Upper Erne, a
      stronghold of the Maguire clan, often attacked by the O'Donnell
      or O'Neill forces. The strategic location of Enniskillen in
      central Fermanagh astride the only convenient crossing of the
      Erne for twenty miles in either direction makes it the central
      point for strategic movement in the area, and makes for a lively
      historical narrative.
