Lowe's Directory 1880
Ederney is a thriving village on the
principal roads from Enniskillen to Castlederg, and from Ballyshannon to
Omagh, nearly midway between those towns. It is 5 miles from Irvinestown, and 2 from
Kesh, at each of which there is a Railway
Station. It has now a population of about 400.
The Market is held
every Thursday, and Fairs on the 17th of each month. There is a very
fine Townhall, Masonic Lodge Room, Constabulary Barrack, Post Office,
Scotch Mill worked by Steam, and Market Place. Water is supplied by
fountains placed in the street.
The houses are mostly slated, and
the town lying among trees has a comfortable and picturesque
appearnace. The Northern Bank has a sub-office here, which is
open every Thursday. There are two Schools, under the National Board
of Education. There is also a Dispensary, attended by J. B. Graham, M.D.,
T.C.D, and L.R.C.S.I.
