The Fermanagh Fleadh was held this weekend in the village of Derrygonnelly. A largely good time seems to have been had by all with the assorted music competitions enjoyed by all. There was also a procession of various floats, cars and motorbikes. Unfortunately there was a bit of controversy when one float contained a joke float of cash machine raiders “Coming to a Town near you.” The “raiders” wearing balaclavas and carrying pretend guns proceeded to dismount the float and point the pretend weapons at various passers by. Whilst some seem to have taken this in good spirits this was not a universal feeling with some fleadh goers finding it unacceptable. Hopefully the committee will take this more seriously than they seemed to at the time.
