Purple Flag

Published: 11th July 2016

Enniskillen has been awarded Purple Flag status for a fifth year running in recognition of its evening and night time economy.

Purple Flag is a town and city centre award – similar to the Blue Flag for beaches – which recognises areas that provide a vibrant and diverse mix of dining, entertainment and culture while promoting the safety and wellbeing of visitors and local residents.

Speaking about the renewal of the Purple Flag status for Enniskillen, Chairperson of Fermanagh and Omagh District Council. Councillor Mary Garrity, said:

“I am delighted that Enniskillen has achieved Purple Flag status once again for its quality entertainment, exceptional hospitality and in providing a safe night out for visitors.

I would like to commend all those involved in Enniskillen achieving this prestigious award and I hope that the status encourages even more people to visit Enniskillen to experience everything it has to offer.

While it is nice to be recognised for our efforts, there is always more to do. Fermanagh and Omagh District Council will continue to work with local businesses and partner agencies to further develop and enhance visitors and local residents’ experience and enjoyment of Enniskillen.”

The Purple Flag programme is managed by the Association of Town and City Management (ATCM).

Only four towns and cities in Northern Ireland have been awarded the coveted Purple Flag status – Enniskillen, Armagh, Derry/Londonderry, and Newry.
