The former Poor Law Hospital in Lisnaskea in Fermanagh set to be auctioned

The former Poor Law Hospital in Lisnaskea in Fermanagh is to be auctioned at the end of the month.

The workhouse, which was originally built in the 1840s, sits on a site of just over one acre on the Newtownbutler road.

It was built to accommodate 500 people but housed over 800 during the famine.

It’s lain derelict for a number of years and appears on the Built Heritage at Risk register.

It’s going under the hammer at an online auction on June 25th, with a reserve of £50,000.
