The Fermanagh Section were overall very pleased with yesterdays competition, the standard of the competition was exceptional across all the band and Drum Major grades and the weather was kind for most of the day. 

We would like to thank all the bands who came along to compete and support this contest in the West,  the public who  attended, the trade stalls who coped admirably with the difficulties in gaining access, the RSPBANI  Branch officials and helpers of the Fermanagh Section, our Chieftain who entered into the spirit of the event, the Band, Drum Majors and M & D adjudicators and all who helped in any way.  It really is very much appreciated and we do trust that you all enjoyed the day.

We will be reviewing the arrangements very shortly and looking forwards to arranging next years event.

Ray Hall, 

Fermanagh Section Secretary

Fermanagh & Omagh Council is carrying out site works at the Lakeland Forum which has reduced the normal number of car parking spaces within the grounds of the Forum for Saturdays forthcoming contest.  It is expected that the spaces within the Forum  grounds will fill up early and there will be some spaces reserved for disabled users.  The Fermanagh Section and the Council have however been able to secure the Wellington Road Car Park as the main free Contest venue car park.  This is situated beside Enniskillen Castle and directly opposite the normal contest venue.   This car park will be open from early Saturday morning.  There is also free car parking available in the area in front of the Royal British Legion.  There ae a number of other car parks close to the venue.

The Section have arranged free alternate parking for Motor Homes and overspill cars in Stuarts Car Park on Sligo Road, Enniskillen.  This is a five minute stroll from the contest venue.  No motor homes are allowed into the Fermanagh Lakeland Forun grounds overnight.
