Brookeborough (/brʊkˈbʌrə/) is a village in County Fermanagh, Northern Ireland at the Westerly foot of Slieve Beagh. It lies about eleven miles east of Enniskillen, just off the A4 trunk road, and about five miles west of the County Tyrone boundary. It is situated in the civil parish of Aghavea and the historic barony of Magherastephana.[2] It is situated within Fermanagh and Omagh district.

According to the 2001 Census, Brookeborough had a population of 517. The economy is heavily dependent on cattle and sheep farming. There are five places of Christian worship; a Catholic church, a Methodist church (built in 1839), an Elim Pentecostal church, a Church of Ireland church and a Baptist church; three public houses; and two primary (elementary) schools.

The Boer War memorial at the head of the town was carved by a local man named Harte in 1901. Behind it is the Lady Brooke Memorial Hall of the same date, a period building preserving all its original features including a clocktower and transverse stained glass window panels.

History[edit]

Before the Plantation of Ulster the area of Brookeborough was known as Achadh Lon (anglicised as Aghalun), the townland in which it lies. It is believed that the Irish name refers to a "field of blackbirds". Aghalun was in the hands of the Maguire Clan until the 1641 rebellion when it was given to the Brooke family. The village was then named after Sir Henry Brooke, who was granted the village in 1666 and settled at Colebrooke Park nearby.

On 1 January 1957, there was a well-known attack on Brookeborough R.U.C. Barracks by the I.R.A. during its 1950s Border Campaign. This attack was led by Seán Garland, and included Seán South and Fergal O'Hanlon, both the subjects of well-known Irish republican ballads, who were shot dead during the attack.

In 2002, the Brookeborough Community Development Association, in conjunction with a similar organisation in Riverstown, County Sligo, Republic of Ireland, launched the Riverbrooke Cross-Border Initiative linking the two villages in a programme of cross-community/cross-border working.

Places of interest[edit]

  • Colebrooke House a B+ listed neo-classical country house, built in 1820, and situated in an estate of 1,000 acres. Colebrooke Park was recently renovated and refurbished by the present Viscount Brookeborough and his wife, Viscountess Brookeborough. This renovation of Colebrooke included the installation of the new Colebrooke spa [3] which was featured on the television show Country House Rescue in June 2012 [4] Part of this renovation also includes additional accommodation in the form of The Triumphal Arch Lodge [5] Today Colebrooke Park, and the buildings around it, provide a tranquil getaway from the rush of the main A4 road between Brookeborough and Fivemiletown, which eventually becomes a section of motorway between Ballygawley and Dungannon, on the way to Belfast. This homely and historic rural retreat has also featured in a number of programmes and publications on the culture of Northern Ireland [6] and also includes holiday cottages [7]and The Ashbrooke Riding School. Equestrianism has long been a part of the history of this area.
  • Memorial to Seán South and Fergal O'Hanlon at Altawalk Cross.
  • Brookeborough Railway Station House (Formerly on the Clogher Valley railway which ran through the village from May 1887 to January 1942) - This small redbrick building now hosts a playgroup and community centre, and pays homage to its railway tradition through the artwork of Amanda Montgomery, who produced a specially commissioned piece of artwork based around themes of travel and railway history. Also in 1998 President Mary McAleese visited the station house as part of a celebration of its opening and as a testament to the cross community work taking place in the area at this time. [8]
  • Brookeborough Heber McMahons GAA grounds and complex - Located on the Carrickaheenan Road this facility includes two football pitches, changing rooms, and clubhouse.
  • Aghavea Parish Church [9]
