Council buildings to be lit blue on ME Awareness Day

Published: 6th May 2016

Fermanagh and Omagh District Council is illuminating two of its properties blue on Thursday 12 May 2016 to mark International ME Awareness Day.

Enniskillen Castle and the Strule Arts Centre, Omagh will be lit blue, the official colour for International ME Awareness Day, on May 12 as part of ME Support Northern Ireland’s, ‘Shine a light on ME’ campaign to help raise awareness of the condition.

ME Support Northern Ireland is a charity which provides support for people with ME. It is estimated 7,000 people in Northern Ireland live with the condition which is characterised by a range of symptoms including intense muscle pain and mental exhaustion.

The lighting up of Council buildings to mark specific days of significance is one way in which the Council may provide support to a particular charity. Enquiries regarding illuminating Council properties and charity support should be made to Louise McLaughlin, Community Services, Fermanagh and Omagh District Council by telephoning 0300 303 1777 or emailing louise.mclaughlin@fermanaghomagh.com.
