Large Crowd attend Burns Night Event at Fermanagh House

12th February 2020

Fermanagh and Omagh District Council in association with the Ulster Scots Community Network, recently hosted “a nicht of quare crack”  in Fermanagh House, Enniskillen to celebrate the life and legacy of Scotland’s Bard, the Ploughman Poet, Robert Burns.

A full house was treated to an excellent presentation by Matthew Warwick from the Ulster Scots Community Network, on the life and work of Robert Burns and his relevance and links to Ulster. He also explained some of the traditions and formalities observed at a Burns Night Supper. 

Entertainment at the evening was provided by Erne Highland Dancers who performed a series of Scottish dances.

A similar event, which was equally well attended took place in the Strule Arts Centre, Omagh.

Both events were organised by Fermanagh and Omagh District Council’s Good Relations team and were part funded by the Northern Ireland Executive through their Together Building a United Community Strategy.
