The Fermanagh Section of the RSPBANI would like to thank all the bands, supporters, branch officials and general public who came along today to support the Section in its endeavors to bring world class drum majors and pipe bands to Enniskillen.  The Section are really delighted at the standards displayed by all of  the bands in every grade, the size of the crowd who attended and most of all that the rain stayed away!  Band and Drum Major results are available here. We hope to see you all back next year.

The County Fermanagh Championship Contest is in Enniskillen at the usual venue, in the grounds of the Lakeland Forum, beside Enniskillen Castle this Saturday, its very close to the town centre.   Drivers should follow direction signs to Sligo, Belleek etc on entering Enniskillen from Belfast and the Lakeland Forum is a left turn at Bus Station just past Erneside Shoppping Centre.  There is parking in the grounds and also in the free public car park in front of the Royal British Legion.  There is further free car parking in the car park beside Castle which is very close to the contest arena. There are also a good number of pay car parks very close.

Fermanagh Council do NOT allow Motor Homes in the Lakeland Forum grounds overnight, our experience is however, that Motor Homes always manage to find somewhere to  park close.

There is an excellent entry across ALL grades and our Section really look forward to seeing you all.

All County Fermanagh Section Bands.

The County Fermanagh section will be holding its AGM on Monday 9th September 2013 at 8:00pm in the Railway Hotel, Enniskillen.

It would be great to see a good turnout of bands  at the Annual General Meeting so that  a large number of piping, drumming and drum majors voices are heard and that the culture is promoted in the Co Fermanagh and wider area.

Do come along, you will be made very welcome.  There might even be a cup of tea and digestive if the funds can stretch that far!

The County Fermanagh Section, while hugely disappointed at having to cancel yesterdays Grade 1. due to the incessant rain, wish to express our heartfelt appreciation for the many messages of support we have received.  There was no doubt that yesterday Fermanagh was in the Lakes rather than the Lakes being in Fermanagh!  While the Section does try its best to control as many aspects of the contest as possible, unfortunetly the weather is beyond even our best efforts. 

We look forward to a huge improvement in the weather for the rest of the season and want to wish every success  to the bands who are travelling next Saturday to Bathgate .

We will see you all next year.

Results Co Fermanagh 

The rain came and came again, the result was the grade one championships, much anticipated here in Enniskillen, was cancelled. It was regretful for the local Section, who put so much into the event for it to end like it did but, knowing the resolve of the Fermanagh Section, they will bounce back again.

All thanks to all our own volunteers for a good job.

Results are attached
