Rosslea or Roslea ( "Ros Liath" meaning grey wood ) is a small village in County Fermanagh, Northern Ireland, near the border with County Monaghan in the Republic of Ireland. It stands on the River Finn and is beset by small natural lakes. Roslea Forest is nearby. In the 2001 Census it had a population of 554 people.

Former US President Bill Clinton has claimed that his distant forebears came from Roslea, though these claims have been dismissed by the Directory of Irish Genealogy as "baseless".
