Lough Sheelin

Lough Sheelin is over 7kms long, more than 3kms wide and borders three counties, Cavan, Meath and Westmeath. Lough Sheelin as legend has it from a fairy well, and was used by a village as its water supply. The rule by the Fairy was that lid had to be replaced every time it was used. One day, someone neglected to replace the lid and the waters rushed out, destroying the village and created the lake.
