A short distance from the town of Enniskillen, White Island is located at Castle Archdale Bay off the east shore of Lower Lough Erne. The island is home to the ruins of a 12th century church with a fine Romanesque doorway, as well 8 archaic carved stone figures which are carved into the wall. Amazingly, the figures were used as building stones for when the church was constructed, meaning that they pre-date the church itself.
