Lisnaskea is a small village in County Fermanagh, Northern Ireland, midway between Enniskillen and the border with the Republic of Ireland at Derryheelan. There lies the exclave of Roranna, with a river to jump across to connect it to the rest of the Republic but no road except via Northern Ireland. In the late 20th century that made it bandit country, but that's all been swept away by the open border of the Good Friday Agreement between UK and ROI. So this village is one of many that depends upon the continuance of that accord.
