Fermanagh Area Plan 2007
Social Base: Dispersed Rural Communities

Lisbellaw
In addition to the towns and villages, the settlement pattern of parts of rural Fermanagh is typified by small clusters of houses centred on a church, a school or a hall which act as the physical and social focus for surrounding townlands. In consultation with Fermanagh District Council, 11 such communities have been identified and designated as Dispersed Rural Communities. These are :
Aghadrumsee, Aghakillymaud, Boho, Cashel, Coa, Cooneen, Corraney, Derrygannon, Knocks, Mullaghdun and Mulleek.
The intention in designating Dispersed Rural Communities is to promote rural regeneration and provide scope for some additional residential development either at the focal points or in the surrounding townlands. Designation will also allow flexibility for small scale enterprise schemes.
Given the dispersed rural character of these communities the Planning Service does not consider it appropriate to define fixed limits of development, rather the townlands together with the main focal points within each Dispersed Rural Community have been identified.
These are:
