Ballyshannon, a port and market town in Co. Donegal, at the mouth of the river Erne, 157 miles from Dublin by rail. The harbour is blocked by a bar which impedes commercial traffic. Just above the town a fine cataract is formed by the Erne, and a bridge of fourteen arches spans the river nearer the sea. The salmon-fishing is excellent.
