County Fermanagh

Fir Manach or Fear Manach means ‘Men of Manach’. The Menapii are the only known Celtic tribe specifically named on Ptolemy’s 150 a.d map of Ireland, where they located their first colony- Menapia – on the Leinster coast circa 216 BC. They later settled around Lough Erne, becoming known as the Fir Manach, and giving their name to Fermanagh and Monaghan.
