Name Emyvale County Monaghan Nearest Town Aughnacloy Access Road N2 About Emyvale is a picturesque village in north County Monaghan, close to the border with Northern Ireland and County Tyrone.

Large iron figures can be seen as you approach the village.

Nearby there are plenty of lakes such as Emy Lake which is ideal for fishing.

It is situated upon the Main Dublin-Derry Road (N2) about 10 km north of Monaghan Town and 8 km south of Aughnacloy in County Tyrone and is the home of a thriving village community of about 500, with many small industries, mainly in the furniture trade.

In 1959, a Brone Age Tomb was discovered here placing the village at over 3000 years old.

Unfortunately for historians, the urn and other artifacts found were inadvertently destroyed when the tomb was being excavated.

In the 8th century, the McKenna Clan arrived and by the 12th century they had established an independent tuath, or kingdom, in North Monaghan, which would last for the next 450 years.
