As happened last year Fermanagh District Council does not allow Motor Homes or Caravans to park overnight in the grounds of the Lakeland Forum.  Our Section did arrange for alternative private parking last year but it was clear that the owners of motor homes/caravans are happier to make their own arrangements which appeared to be very satisfactory.  While we have not arranged any alternative parking this year, if there is a demand we will try and facilitate.  Please contact the Section Secretary, Ray Hall by email if you would wish this to be pursued at

The Section would prefer it if Caravans or Motor homes do not enter into the grounds of the Lakeland Forum on the Saturday of the Contest as we anticipate the spaces in the Forum car park areas will be under pressure.  There is a free public car park just opposite the British Legion and also beside Enniskillen Castle (KFC Entrance), both of which are ideal for the contest.  We would advise however to get there early!

Please note that the order of play for the Fermanagh Championships in Enniskillen on 28th May is available on this site by clicking FERMANAGH CHAMPIONSHIPS under UPCOMING EVENTS Tab on left of screen.
