TRILLICK AND BALLINAMALLARD TO BELLEEK GREENWAY
“Lough Erne Greenway”
As the train line headed south from Omagh towards Enniskillen, a junction between Trillick and Ballinamallard opened a route across the top of Lower Lough Erne to the world famous pottery-producing village of Belleek, and from here on into Donegal and the towns of Ballyshannon and Bundoran on the Atlantic coast.
