An Chúil (Irish)
Location of Coole, County Fermanagh, Northern Ireland.
|Sovereign state||United Kingdom|
Coole (from Irish Cuil, meaning 'corner') is a barony in County Fermanagh, Northern Ireland. To its west lies Upper Lough Erne, and it is bordered by three other baronies in Northern Ireland: Knockninny to the west; Magherastephana to the north; and Clankelly. It also borders three baronies in the Republic of Ireland: Dartree to the east; Tullygarvey and Loughtee Lower to the south.
Coole is based upon the ancient territory of Cuil, which was frequently referred to as the residence of the O'Cassidys (Irish: Ó Caiside). The O'Cassidys became the head physicians of the Maguires, and the territory was a collateral or dynastic branch of the Maguires. In the Annals it appears as Cuil na nOirear, which may have applied to an old half-barony near Enniskillen.
