Situated near the Fermanagh Border and overlooked by the Slieve Russell mountain is Ballyconnell, a town named after a Celtic Ford. Highly regarded for its coarse fishing, it has also won numerous National Tidy Town awards. Just outside the town is a replica of the Killycluggin Stone which was found here. Dating back to the Iron Age, this important stone contains Celtic motifs first found at La TŠne in Switzerland. The original is now on display in the National Museum.
