Fireworks in Fermanagh and Tyrone

This year there will be no fireworks display in Enniskillen or Omagh due to the ongoing Covid pandemic.

A Fermanagh and Omagh District Council spokesperson said, "The lead in time to organising a fireworks display is approximately four months. A decision was taken by the Council in June to pursue an alternative Hallowe'en to the usual fireworks display given the ongoing Covid-19 health pandemic and the uncertainty at that time of restrictions that may or may not be in place in October."
