The ‘Picnic in the Park’ event, which is organised by Fermanagh and Omagh District Council, will include an Easter egg trail; real Easter chicks and rare breed hens. There will also be face painting; balloon modelling and music provided by Cathy McGovern from the beautiful bandstand located in the centre of the park.

Encouraging families to make their way to Picnic in the Park on Easter Monday, Chairman of Fermanagh and Omagh District Council, Councillor Thomas O’Reilly, said:
