Clones-Roslea Area IPA

Location: On the Irish border between Monaghan and Fermanagh, west of Monaghan and to the north of the N54.

Grid Reference: H 504 298

This low-lying area, on the borders of Monaghan and Fermanagh around the Finn River, is notable for its concentration of small calcareous ‘marl’ lakes.

Levels of nutrients in marl lakes are low, providing a habitat to which stoneworts are particularly suited, which has resulted in this area being of particular value for its stonewort population.
