WEATHERGIRL Ulrika Jonsson ensured there were no dull spells in County Fermanagh last Friday morning when she did live broadcasts from Enniskillen – and the TV-AM personality was so impressed that she is planning a return visit.

Television viewers from all across the UK could see the county looking its best when Ulrika and a TV-AM crew presented up-to-date reports on the weather, as well as local stories and interviews.

The half-hourly broadcasts, from 6.30am to 9am, were presented from a small scenic location on the edge of Lough Erne, just outside the castle and watergate at the Broadmeadow. It provided an ideal spot for viewers to see some of the popular watersports carried out on the lake, including wind-surfing, rowing and canoeing.

Teenagers, James Carelton and Fionnuala Peake, from the Peake School of Dancing, gave a very enjoyable performance during the 9am broadcast. Their musical accompaniment was provided by Charlie Woods, Francis Rasdale and Jim McGrath, who had got together informally.

Having enjoyed her time in the province, Ulrika said that Fermanagh was a “fantastic” place and likened it to parts of Sweden. She talked about the lakes and trees and the “clean, unpolluted” place the county is.

During one “live” conversation with TV-AM presenter Lorraine Kelly, Ulrika discussed the possibility of returning to Northern Ireland on holiday.
