  • Le Lough Sheelin (Irlandais : Loch Síodh Linn — « lac du bassin féerique ») est un lough (lac) irlandais d'eau douce et calcaire. (fr)
  • Lough Sheelin (irisch: Loch Síodh Linn, „See des Elfenteichs“) ist ein kalkhaltigen Gewässer an den Grenzen der Countys Westmeath, Meath und Cavan der Republik Irland. Es liegt in der Nähe der Ortschaften Finea und Granard (County Longford). Zu- und Abfluss ist der River Inny, der stromab durch Lough Derravaragh zum Shannon fließt. Der Fischbestand des Sees besteht überwiegend aus Forellen, deren natürlicher Bestand in den letzten Jahren allerdings so zurückging, dass der irischen Central Fisheries Board eine große Zahl einsetzte, um den Angelsport wieder zu beleben. Jetzt leben wieder ungefähr 100.000 Forellen im See. Ein populäres irisches Volkslied ist „Lough Sheelin's Side“. (de)
  • Il Lough Sheelin (in gaelico irlandese Loch Síodh Linn, che significa "lake del pozzo delle fate") è un lough d'acqua fresca, composto, a livello minerale, di limestone. Si trova a cavallo di tre contee della Repubblica d'Irlanda: quelle di Meath e di Westmeath nel Leinster e quella di Cavan nell'Ulster. Il lago è naturalmente popolato dalla trota bruna, che è notevolmente diminuita, a livello di fauna autoctona, negli ultimi anni. Tuttavia molti esemplari sono stati introdotti dall'esterno, facendo la felicità dei pescatori. Si stima che nel lago ci siano circa 100000 esemplari di trota. (it)

  • Lough Sheelin (from Irish Loch Síodh Linn, meaning "lake of the fairy pool"), in standard Irish Loch Síleann, is a limestone freshwater lough (lake) in Ireland located in County Westmeath, County Meath and County Cavan near the villages of Finnea (also spelled Finea) and Mountnugent and the town of Granard, (County Longford). The 1900-hectare lake is naturally populated by brown trout whose native stocks have been depleted in recent years. Phosphorus originating from intensive agricultural developments has caused a progressive enrichment of the Lough's waters which has led to a substantial decrease in the number of trout. The level of phosphorus in the lake is currently being monitored and is decreasing. Zebra mussels, an invasive species, were first seen in the lake in 2000 and there has since been a huge increase in their population. There is also an abundance of common roach in the lake. A state agency, Inland Fisheries Ireland, monitors the water quality, and in conjunction with local organisations has stocked the lake with farm-reared trout. The lake is a Special Protection Area (SPA) under the EU Bird Directive (EC/79/409)., as an important site for wintering waterfowl, supporting nationally important populations of great crested grebe, pochard, tufted duck and goldeneye. It is also the setting of the song "Lough Sheelin Eviction", made popular by the Wolfe Tones. The song is purportedly based on an account of an eviction witnessed by Dr. Thomas Nulty, Roman Catholic bishop of Meath, in 1848 in his first year as a priest in the diocese. (en)
