Fermanagh and Omagh District Council is illuminating Enniskillen Castle on 17 and 18 March to mark St Patrick’s Day and Sport Relief, respectively.

On Thursday 17 March, Enniskillen Castle will be lit green as part of Project St Patrick’s celebrations of Ireland’s patron saint in Co. Fermanagh. The iconic building will be just one of a number of buildings and landmarks around the world that will be bathed in green to mark St Patrick’s Day.

Enniskillen Castle will then be illuminated red on Friday 18 March in recognition of Sport Relief, a UK-wide event which brings together sport and entertainment to raise money to help vulnerable people in the UK and some of the world’s poorest countries. BT, which is supporting Sport Relief fundraising efforts with its staff volunteering at Enniskillen call centre to accept donations from members of the public, made the request to the Council to light Enniskillen Castle red.

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