The picturesque Co. Fermanagh takes its name from the old Fir Manach, the Irish term for the men of Manach, referring to an ancient Irish tribe of people. Covering an area of around 1,691 square kilometres, it shares borders with Co. Tyrone to the north-east and borders counties in the Republic of Ireland on all other sides.
During the Second World War, the military made use of the large lakes and access to the Atlantic coast through the Donegal Corridor. British, American, and Canadian airmen served in Co. Fermanagh at wartime airfields such as R.A.F. Castle Archdale, and R.A.F. Killadeas.
