Enniskillen No. 3 (en iss KILL un)
Rural municipality headquartered at Oxbow. Sam McKnight came from Durham Co., Ontario, and served as chairman of the municipal organizing committee. He seems to have had his heart set on a northern Irish name, since his committee proposed Enniskillen, Derry, Antrim, Boyne, Alma, Fermangah and Waterloo. The government selected the first name on the list which honours Enniskillen (inis Ceithleann, "Ceithle's island"), the country town of Fermanagh, Northern Ireland.
