Olivia O'Dolan has recently been of great help with identifying various people who appear in the photos of Blacklion
displayed in this GALLERY. She has also emailed up-todate photos of the area that may be familiar to many of you who
served time at St Augustine's.

The sign at the old station (2004)

It may be a brand new sign but the brickwork is probably
the same as when you last stood on this platform.

View of the platform at the old railway station in Belcoo (2004)

"The Sligo Leitrim and Northern Counties Railway opened in 1879; closed 1957 due to financial difficulties. The single-storey Station House with decorative barge-boards was beautifully restored in 1981; signal box and platform 1994."

(Quoted from the "Fermanagh Properties" website).


(I thought that the grass on the line looked pretty permanent).

St Patrick's Church, Holywell, near Belcoo.

"A pleasingly simple rural church dated 1828. The church is
complemented and enhanced by an isolated setting of
great beauty. The landscape, lake and mountains
beyond are particularly impressive. "


(Quoted from the "Fermanagh Properties" website).

Mairead has done a lot to restore this holywell since 1999."
