Heavy snowfall didn't put a chill on the enthusiasm of the Fermanagh Harriers, the oldest registered harrier pack in the British Isles, as they held their annual Boxing Day meet in Enniskillen on Monday, December 26.

The pack comprised of twelve and a half couple of mixed hounds who are showing great sport this season according to the Hunt Master Patrick Murphy. The Master was ably assisted by Whippers-in Gerry Mullarkey and Sean McAloon with further assistance provided by Caitriona Conlon-Dempsey.

The 30 or so mounted followers gathered in Enniskillen and set off through the centre of the town, enjoying the great atmosphere as they were greeted by those lining the route.

As the Hunt followers journeyed through the Fermanagh countryside, they took in the panoramic views of Devenish Island and Lough Erne, and were not deterred by a heavy snow shower which occurred along the way.

"Everybody had a fantastic day and we enjoyed the views of the mighty Erne from the elevated countryside over which we hunted," said Fermanagh Harriers chairman Padraig Sheridan.

The Fermanagh Harriers will hold their annual Hunt Ball on February 12 at the Killyhevlin Hotel, Enniskillen. They will also take part in the Point to Point races at Castle Irvine, Necarne in April 2023. The exact dates for this are yet to be confirmed.
