18th Century Enniskillen

A fine painting of Enniskillen, County Fermanagh, in the 18th century.

It was painted ca 1780-95.

The Castle dominates the painting, and the spire of St Anne's parish church (now St Macartan's Cathedral) is prominent, too.

Enniskillen is the county town of County Fermanagh, and literally an island town.

For centuries two bridges connected Enniskillen to the mainland (aren't there three now?).

No there are actually seven bridges. Five road, and two foot bridges.
