Back to the Future – St Patricks Day

| Enniskillen BID

St Patricks Day 2023 is fast approaching with the theme this year ‘back to the future’. However, before heading back to the future, come with us for a look back at previous St Patricks Day celebrations in Fermanagh.

St Patricks Day 2019 saw thousands of people flood the streets of Enniskillen to enjoy the vibrant celebration in the town centre.  Organised by Project St Patrick, the parade began at the Lakeland Forum with a host of traditional and modern entertainment acts, including the local band Full Moon Fever who added to the festival atmosphere. There were plenty of games, activities and fun on offer for the whole family. The town centre was filled to capacity with crowds four deep around Diamond and Hollow areas.

The global pandemic brought a stop to the celebration planning in 2020 and 2021. However, last year Enniskillen came alive again after a 2-year break from celebrations. The St Patrick’s Day festival planned with Enniskillen BID including other local venues involved a day of celebrations for all the family. There was street entertainment including live music and Irish dancers. Unfortunately, given the short timeframe, a parade was not feasible for 2022.
