After a wonderful sunny day of competition on Saturday at the Broadmeadow, Enniskillen at the County Fermanagh Championships, following the brilliant Friday night Recital at the Westville Hotel featuring Pipe Major David Johnson, the County Fermanagh Section would like to thank all who contributed in any way to enable this weekend of events to take place. We sincerely hope that all who came along very much enjoyed the weekend and we have already booked similar weather for 2019.
