Cole’s Monument reopens for summer

Published: 5th April 2017

Cole’s Monument, which stands within Forthill Park in Enniskillen and is one of the most prominent landmarks in the town’s skyline, will reopen to the public on Saturday 15 April 2017.

The viewing platform at the top of the monument is accessible by a 108 step staircase and offers magnificent views of Enniskillen and the surrounding area. It will be open every Saturday and Sunday from 1 pm to 3 pm, Mid-April to September and on various other days during these months.

A Fermanagh and Omagh District Council guide will be on hand during these times to escort groups of up to 8 people at any one time up and down the staircase and provide a history of the tower and the town.

Admission to the monument is free.

Cole’s Monument is one of two high quality memorials in Forthill Park. The other is Plunkett’s Bandstand. The Victorian bandstand was erected in 1895 in recognition of the work of Thomas Plunkett who served for many years on the Enniskillen Board of Guardians and the Town Commissioners and was responsible for many improvements in Enniskillen including the redevelopment of the Forthill Pleasure Grounds.

Full details of Cole’s Monument opening hours are available by visiting Fermanagh and Omagh District Council’s website, www.fermanaghomagh.com or by contacting Fermanagh Visitor Information Centre on 028 6632 3110.
