Alain Le Garsmeur & Keith Baker
In 1776 Richard Twiss compared Lough Erne to Loch Lomond, the Italian Lakes and Lake Geneva. Today Lough Erne still stands up to such comparisons and remains a visitors' paradise.
It is also a lough of two parts: the upper lough, with its tangle of inlets and drumlins, and the lower lough, with its corridor of islands and broad expanses of water, almost like inland seas. Between the two is Enniskillen, the heart of the region and a historic, lively and much-Ioved town that boasts such attractions as the castle, the Inniskillings' Regimental Museum and Cole's Monument.
The book follows the course of the Erne, moving from the upper lough, through Enniskillen to the lower lough. In over 150 stunning photographs, Alain Le Garsmeur captures the beauty of the area in all its different moods, seasons and weathers, from frosty days at the Crom Estate to the spring days when bluebells carpet the shores. Accompanied by Enniskillen-born Keith Baker's informative and engaging words, the photographs tell the story of the lough, from its well-known landmarks such as Devenish, Boa Island and Florence Court to its stunning hidden inlets, moorings and jetties.
Lough Erne is an unmissable celebration of life on the water in one of the best-Ioved parts of Ireland, perfect for those who want to discover the area, and for those who have already fallen under its spell.
