Lakes and Rivers

R. Boyle, Boyle, Co. Roscommon

The river and the lakes around Boyle add enormously to the beauty of the town, and they were popular scenes for the photographer.

The Annals of Innisfallen note the emergence of Lough Key in 106 AD.

The drumlins and small hills that remained above the water formed eventually into the wooded islands, that are dotted all over the lake today.

Irish chieftains and the English landed gentry all knew the value of the enchanting Lough Key.
