Council buildings to light up for Cystic Fibrosis Awareness Week

18th June 2019

Fermanagh and Omagh District Council will illuminate Enniskillen Castle and the Strule Arts Centre, Omagh, yellow on Friday 21 June 2019, on behalf of the Cystic Fibrosis Trust, as part of Cystic Fibrosis Awareness Week.

Cystic Fibrosis is a life limiting condition affecting the lung and digestive system which causes difficulty breathing and an increased vulnerability to infection, meaning being unwell can frequently interfere with work and education in the lives of those living with condition.

The Cystic Fibrosis Trust is fighting for a life unlimited for everyone affected by cystic fibrosis. Its mission is to create a world where cystic fibrosis no longer means a lifelong burden of care and an early death but where everyone living with the condition will be able to look forward to a long, healthy life.
