Olympic events for Fermanagh?Olympic events for Fermanagh?
Monday, 10th October 2005

Members of the District Council have approved a proposal that the county should enter a bid for a number of the 2012 London Olympics events to be held within its boundaries. Among the suggestions were that equestrian events could be held at the Necarne Castle Equestrian Centre in Irvinestown, while some of the watersports could take place on Lough Erne. Councillor Tom Elliott noted that Necarne had recently hosted the International Horse Trials, though there was a suggestion that the venue might be some metres short of international standards. A representative from the relevant government department is to be invited to Enniskillen to advise as to how the application should be addressed.
