While the Earl of Ormonde acted in concert with the Royalists, this town opposed the parliamentarian interest and firmly resisted every attack made upon it by the forces of that party; but it was finally compelled to surrender to Sir Charles Coote.
The town is situated on an island in the narrowest part of Lough Erne, or rather in a strait several miles in length, which connects the great northern and southern expanses of the lake, and in which are numerous inlets.
It is remarkable for its respectable and thriving appearance, and for the advantages it possesses in the navigation of the lake and the facility afforded for excursions among the rich and beautiful scenery for which it is distinguished; it has increased considerably of late, and is still improving.

The kingdom of Lough Erne contained within its jurisdiction approximately seven of the older tuatha and each tuath, instead of being governed by a petty king, was held by one or more vassal-chiefs, who rendered tribute and service to Maguire, and often belonged to the same royal dynasty.
