TAOISEACH Leo Varadkar is expected to pay a symbolic visit to Enniskillen on Remembrance Sunday, The Impartial Reporter has learned.
It’s understood the Irish Prime Minister may lay a wreath of green laurels at the war memorial just as his predecessor Enda Kenny did during his premiership for five consecutive years.
While a spokesman for the Taoiseach could not confirm his attendance when contacted by this newspaper this week it’s understood Mr. Varadkar has been invited to “carry on the tradition” started by Mr. Kenny on behalf of the Irish government, according to multiple sources. 
The year is particularly poignant as it marks the 30th anniversary of the Enniskillen bombing which killed 11 people and injured 63.
The Royal British Legion’s chairman in Enniskillen John Jones said Mr. Varadkar would be “made very welcome” if he visits. 
“It would be great for the town if the Taoiseach continued to visit and support the people of Enniskillen. This is a big year, but we are not here to celebrate. We are here for remembrance,” he said.
Mr. Varadkar who replaced Mr. Kenny, Fine Gael’s longest serving Taoiseach, earlier this year last visited Enniskillen in 2012 while serving as Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport.
