The name of this former public house recalls the historical importance of the linen trade. Linen was Fermanagh’s main produce in the 18th century, but was overtaken in the next century by farm produce. Salted butter was exported from Enniskillen in wooden oak casks, as far as Lisbon and the West Indies. However, most of the town’s industries catered for the local market. From 1880 until recently, the boot and shoe trade occupied what is now 11 Townhall Street. Similarly, there had been a wine and spirit grocer at number 13 (1880–1965), when The Vintage public house opened. The Vintage and the closed premises next door now form this Wetherspoon pub.
