Derryvore

Derryvore (from Irish: Doire Mhór, meaning "great oak-wood")[1] is a hamlet and townland in County Fermanagh, Northern Ireland. It lies on a small peninsula in Upper Lough Erne. Its landscape includes many fens and reedbeds in Erne valley.[2]

The Derryvore area first was a part of the Crom Estate, which according to a map survey done in 1719 and 1721 included the townlands of Derrybeg West, Corraharra, and Derryvore.

It includes a Trinity Church (known locally as Crom Church), commissioned by John Crichton, 3rd Earl Erne. It was built in 1842 and expanded to include towers in the 1880s.[3]
