Route

Near Drumboy

The B81 is a medium-length B-road in central County Fermanagh.

The road starts at a triangular junction on the A46 (former B37) on the western edge of Enniskillen and heads west, soon reaching open country. About half a mile along the B81 a road comes in from the left signposted Belcoo; this is a spur of the B81 which heads south via a TOTSO right at a T-junction to reach the A4 to the southwest of Enniskillen. The mainline of the B81, however, continues ahead.

The road continues northwest across the undulating countryside. After a few miles it reaches Derrygonnelly, where the road TOTSOs right on the near side of the village to avoid the village centre. From this point on, however, the road is of considerably worse quality, seldom being wide enough for centre markings. The B81 heads north before running round a hill and then giving way to an unclassified road at a crossroads. It then TOTSOs left at a T-junction then right shortly afterwards. The road then descends to end back on the A46 within sight of Lower Lough Erne.

History

On classification in the 1923 Road Lists the B81 only ran between Enniskillen and the current TOTSO in Derrygonnelly. The road was quickly extended north and gained its spur at the southern end round the same time.
