Nestling in Glenade Valley (from the Irish “Glen of Jealousy”), located between Kinlough and Manorhamilton, Glenade Lake, offers good coarse fishing amid spectacular scenery, within sight of the towering peaks of the Dartry range of mountains.
The lake has its own monster legend and contains char and perch which will challenge any angler. The monster legend has been immortalised in poetry which tells the story of the Dobhar Chu (fadas!)(pronounced “Dowarcoo”) which, together with its mate, emerged from the depths of the lake centuries ago to reign tragedy to the local area.
Nearby there is an ancient graveyard called Conwell Cemetery which a stone carving of the Dobhar Chu can be seen.
