Ballyconnell, Co. Cavan

Ballyconnell (Irish: Béal Átha Conaill) is a town in County Cavan, Eleven km (7 miles) west of Belturbet near the Fermanagh border is a well-known coarse fishing centre.

It lies astride the Shannon-Erne Waterway which was opened in 1993, formerly known as the Woodford Canal which was built in 1860. Prior to being canalised it was known as the River Grainne. The town sits at the foot of Slieve Russell (1331 feet) mountain - which provides extensive views - and is a mile from the border between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.

According to tradition, it is named after Conal Cearnach, a first-century hero of the Red Branch Knights, who was killed here by the men of Connacht in revenge for the slaying of their king.
