1) In that great book/atlas "Landscapes of South Ulster", the townland of Killyfole appears on map #19 (Clones) at H5.
A portion of Killyfole is Mill Lough.

2) On maps from the Killyfole and District Development Association (www.Killyfole.org.uk), Killyfole Lough lies between Ballagh
Cross and Dernawilt (?). On a larger scale, it is between Donagh and Rosslea on B36.

Are these one and the same or two different locations?

Killyfole is actually the townland, which the lough lies in. The lough water level was raised, and a mill built, thereafter called the Mill Lough. This raising cause the flooding of the crannog in the middle of the lough. The water authority then took the Lough over to supply water to the south of Fermanagh. During an extreme drought in 1995 the lough level dropped to its lowest level ever reveling the crannog. About 5-6 years ago the water authority stopped using the lough. Our group was setup to take control of the lough by the local people, because an external company wanted to develop it against our wishes.

I hope this explains things a bit.
