Westmeath extends from the Shannon's Lough Ree in the west to the shores of Lough Sheelin in the north-east and to Kinnegad and the Royal Canal in the south.
Westmeath is famous for its lakes and there is a wealth of trout and coarse fishing on lakes Owel, Ennell, Derravaragh, Ree and the River Shannon. Lough Derravaragh in Co. Westmeath is said to have been one of the lakes in which the children of Lír lived for centuries after being transformed into swans by an evil spell cast by their stepmother.
