Please note that, 'Church, Lace & Army: A family history of the Fermanagh Tottenhams' will be temporarily off display from 30 May 2022. Visitors will be able to enjoy the exhibition again from 15 June 2022 and it will be on show until 25 September 2022. Apologies for any inconvenience caused.

This exhibition focuses on a distinguished Fermanagh family who left a deep imprint on the Parish of Inishmacsaint. Tottenham family members played a pivotal role in the army and the Church. Emily Frances Maclean, wife of George Tottenham established a world class lace industry 'Inishmacsaint Lace' along with her sisters. The exhibition covers links to the Ely Estate in West Fermanagh and the many colourful personalities of the Tottenham family.

It has been meticulously researched and drawn together by members of the Fermanagh Genealogy Centre, located at Enniskillen Castle. The Centre’s aim is to promote the heritage of Fermanagh along with the study of family history.
