When you go, I recommend stopping at the Museum in Enniskillen and
talking to Frank McHugh at the genealogy center there. Frank's family is
The roads in Boho are hilly, windy and narrow and it is easy to get
turned around. Have a good map and a navigator! But downhill will get
you back to Derrygonnelly and the main roads. Be sure to stop at the
Linnet Pub to ask (in the manner Dave recommended) for the townlands.
Toneel is where the RC church is. Some of my own ancestors came from

Well everything is relative to what you like.... very difficult to
advise one on that, incl. budget but there are plenty of places around!

As for roads... depends on what you are used to!
Do you want to stay in same place for 4 or 5 days? Will you have
internet access? Do you want to stay inland? On Coast?
If you are going to Toneel/Legland then don't ask about your
people!!! Just ask where townlands are, if you go there asking about
someone by name then people will want to know Why? Let them ask, and
even then have a piece of paper with their names on it to look at.
Don't just list them all off by name!
You need to come across as you couldn't care less and are just trying
to find the townland.
Even go so far as to say "No one would remember them, too long
ago!".... then they will try to prove you wrong!!
FERMANAGH-GOLD Advice on Boho area
/Date:/ Fri, 29 Apr 2016 10:40:53 +0000 (UTC)
Hello all,My great-grandfather's family came from the Boho area -
townlands Toneel North and Legland mainly, which seem to be very
rural. My husband and I are planning to drive to this area in July, we
would have 4 or 5 days to look up places connected with the family,
and also do some local sightseeing as it all looks so beautiful. I am
just wondering whether we would do better to stay in Enniskillen and
travel out from there, or stay locally as there are a few B&Bs or
small hotels within a few miles. What are the roads like? What have
others done, can you see any disadvantages one way or the other? I
imagine evening meals could be difficult to come by in the country?
Any thoughts or advice would be very welcome. Best wishes Val Mc in
