Lough Erne Island Put Up For Sale

Staff Island in Lough Erne, Co Fermanagh, has been put up for sale.

The private island in off the south western shore of Upper Lough Erne and includes almost 10.25 acres.

The asking price is currently £125,000, with estate agent Eadie, McFarland and Co, handling the sale.

They say that while the island was wooded, there were enough open spaces between the trees for the owner to walk.

They added that while prospective buyers would be "extremely unlikely" to get planning permission to build a house on the island, a "little cabin" could be possible.
