This parish, which is situated on the river Woodford, comprises, according to the Ordnance snrvey, 10,678 statute acres, of which 3200¾ are in the county of Fermanagh, and of the remainder 2256¼ are in Lower Loughtee, and 5221 in Tullaghagh, county of Cavan; 6644 statute acres are applotted under the tithe act, and 275 are under water. The river Woodford has its source in the county of Leitrim, and after reaching Woodford, formerly the residence of the Gore family, and from which it takes its name, passes through two lakes, and becoming deep and broad might at a very trifling expense be made navi-gable to Lough Erne, a distance of nearly nine miles.
