Necarne Castle (Castle Irvine) , Irvinestown
There is an equestrian centre within the grounds. It was built in the first half of the 17th century. The family is of Scottish origin, being directly descended from the Irvings of Bonshawe, Dumfriesshire, whose ancestor was Robert de Herewine, 1226. Christopher Irvine of the Temple, London, was the first to settle in Ireland and being granted lands in Co. Fermanagh, he built the Castle, but the rebels set fire to it in 1641. Necarne Castle as it is known today was used as a hospital for injured airmen during WW2
