     Home | Northern Ireland district | Fermanagh District Council

Fermanagh District Council is a local council in Northern Ireland. The borders of the district are very similar to those of the traditional County Fermanagh, containing all of that county plus a small section of County Tyrone in the Dromore Road (Irvinestown ward) and Kilskeery Road areas. Council headquarters are in Enniskillen. Fermanagh District Council is a unique local authority in that it covers at least one entire county in Northern Ireland. County Fermanagh makes up one eighth of Northern Ireland’s land mass, and the district council represents the largest local government district in geographical terms in Northern Ireland. One fifth of the area is covered by water, largely Lough Erne. The County has a growing population of 57,600, (2001 census) of which 70% live in rural areas. It is estimated that the population is growing at a rate of 2.5% pa , so the 2001 figures, when translated to 2007, are already over 10% too low. Enniskillen is the main centre of population with 13,000 people. Smaller towns in the area include Lisnaskea, Irvinestown, Belleek, Belcoo and Derrylin.
