County Fermanagh

Coole () is a barony in County Fermanagh, Northern Ireland.[2] To its west lies Upper Lough Erne, and it is bordered by three other baronies in Northern Ireland: Knockninny to the west; Magherastephana to the north; and Clankelly.[2] It also borders three baronies in the Republic of Ireland: Dartree to the east; Tullygarvey and Loughtee Lower to the south.

Coole is based upon the ancient territory of Cuil, which was frequently referred to as the residence of the O'Cassidy's (Irish: Ó Caiside). The O'Cassidys became the head physicians of the Maguires, and the territory was a collateral or dynastic branch of the Maguires. In the Annals is appears as Cuil na nOirear, which may have applied to an old half-barony near Enniskillen.[3]
