Lough Erne Islet Goes Up For Sale

31st July 2014
Lough Erne Islet Goes Up For Sale

#WaterfrontProperty - Fancy owning your own island in one of Ireland's largest lakes? Staff Island in Upper Lough Erne could be yours for £125,000 (€157,500), as the News Letter reports.

With zoning restrictions preventing the building of anything more than a small cabin on the 10-acre wooded islet at Knockninny Quay in Co Fermanagh, it won't provide for a palatial hideaway.

But the island property could make the perfect "weekend retreat for a well-heeled boat-owner". And it may also be of interest to public bodies such as the RSPB for its potential as a nature reserve.

The News Letter has more on the story HERE.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
