In the far southwestern corner of the District is Fivemiletown - the name derives from the town’s location fi ve Irish miles from its nearest neighbours of Clogher, Brookeborough and Tempo. Its former name was Baile na Lorgan, which means ‘town on the long hilltop ridge’. An important road junction, it was established as a ‘plantation’ town and has grown to a population of 1975.
The village can boast factories and a large modern creamery that produces a tasty range of award winning cheese. Good fishing is available for salmon and trout in the Colebrooke River and Screeby Lough and for perch and rudd in other small local Loughs.
At the Round Lake the visitor may stay at the caravan park, use the visitor centre or simply enjoy the lovely walks around the Lough. The town has active rugby and football clubs and two hotels.
