Upper Erne The Canoe Trail 2 Colin Murphy


Setting out in Belturbet Co. Cavan comedian Colin Murphy cycles to the border to meet Fermanagh native Graham Little, and together they cycle to Upper Lough Erne. This is not so much a lake as a watery maze of islands, inlets and meandering waters. The two lads cycle along the Kingfisher cycle which goes all around Upper Lough Erne.

In the second video Colin’s final destination before cycling off to Enniskillen is Aghakillymaude Mummers Centre at Knockninny. Jim Ledwith fills him in on the Mummers tradition in the weeks before Christmas, when men make hats and dresses from Straw and go to visit houses and perform drama and songs and get food and drink in return. Back on the road Colin arrives at his final destination, Enniskillen Castle. Colin was delighted with the chance to spend time getting to know Fermanagh as he usually just passes through it in his car. Use the following links to find further information on this adventure
