A man with ‘a century of memories of Enniskillen’ is among those looking forward to The Millennium Babes launching their fourth publication of Enniskillen in the Rare Ould Times in Enniskillen Library tomorrow, Friday, September 22, at 7.30pm.

Tommy McBrien, aged 97 and a half, who was born ‘between the bridges’ at Water Street, is the most senior contributor to the book, and says he is pleased to be part of it. “It is quite an honour,” he said.

Speaking in the run up to the launch, he joined up in Enniskillen with fellow authors Brenda Whitley, Tony Gallinagh and John Maxwell, who are among the many contributors who share memories of the lakeland town in the new book. 

Once again, like the first three volumes, this book is professionally presented with almost 500 pages, consisting of stories and poems from over 120 authors and is beautifully illustrated, using approximately 1,200 photographs. 

“Every story is completely different,” said a representative for the title, who noted: “Each page discloses wonderful insights into life as it was in Enniskillen over 50 years ago. There are many wonderful stories to captivate the reader but you will have to purchase the book to find out more.”

On the night of the launch the new book will be sold for £12 (normal price £14.99). Because of the size of the book, this offer will only be available on the launch night. Book 3 will be for sale for £10 also; however there is a very limited amount of these books left. (Book 1 and 2 are out of print).

"Everyone is welcome to attend the launch and refreshments will be served," highlighted the representative.

She urges people to come and take “a trip down memory lane” with them “to enjoy a night's ‘craic’.”
