What a difference 400 years makes

Back to Fermanagh. As you know we visited both Monea and Tully Castles, which were built by energetic and wealthy Scots, determined to make a success of their new business ventures in west Ulster. They had been granted lands in Fermanagh in the years following the Plantation, which had begun in 1610.

Having left Monea Castle, we drove the hilly backroads between Garrison and Belleek. On the way, we passed a huge windfarm at Callagheen.

Who built it and runs it? Scottish Power.
