Enniskillen 400

26th Sep 2012 - 25th Jan 2013 Fermanagh County Museum Runs until 25 January 2013

Marking 400 years since the official foundation of the town of Enniskillen by the Royal Charter of James I, the exhibition explores life in the seventeenth century.

Beginning with Gaelic rule, the exhibition includes the wider impact of the Plantation in Fermanagh through the histories of its towns, castles and family trees.

Complementing the exhibition, Enniskillen photographer, David Robertson (AIPF), has taken a series of infra-red images of Fermanagh’s Plantation Castles, capturing mood and atmosphere. The photographs are displayed alongside sonnets by writer and historian, Seamas Mac Annaidh, evoking the poetry of the sites and their histories.

Exhibition supported by the Northern Ireland Museums Council and the Northern Ireland Environment Agency
