Located east of the town of Glenamaddy, the Glenamaddy Turlough is a seasonal lake which usually dries up in summer. It is said that the town of Glenamaddy is reputed to get its name from the shape of the lake in winter, which is said to resemble a dog. 

The turlough is popular among wildlife with thousands of waterfowl and birds such as golden plover, Greenland white-fronted goose, whooper swans, wigeon, curlew, lapwing and other species arriving each winter for food and shelter.
