Fastry Border

Hermitage, Fastry, Fermanagh/Monaghan Unapproved Road


  • This road was spiked in 1957 but left open in the 1970's.

  • When the spikes were placed in the road during the 50’s, local residents cut the corner of one of the fields at Fastry border. This allowed local people, both Catholic and Protestant, to continue smuggling along this road.
