A brilliant night was had by all who attended the Rotary Club of Enniskillen’s President’s Ball on Saturday, March 4 – the first black-tie event hosted by the club since the Covid-19 pandemic struck.

Taking place at the Killyhevlin Hotel, Enniskillen, guests – of whom there were over 200 – enjoyed a drinks reception upon their arrival and were treated to live pipe music by piper Ray Hall.

In attendance on the night were the current Enniskillen Rotary President Angela McKinney, former Rotary Presidents Catherine Robinson and Heather Ellis, current Rotary Ireland District Governor Sean Fitzgerald, incoming Rotary Ireland District Governor Kenny Fisher, and Omagh Rotary President John Campbell.

The night included a four-course dinner which was followed with speeches and a raffle with more than 40 prizes.

The nominated charity for the night was Fermanagh Women’s Aid, plus Rotary International and Foundation Projects.

Kerrie Flood, Development Manager in Fermanagh Women’s Aid, gave an impactful presentation about the work of the organisation locally, which was well-received.

The event concluded with music performed by local band, Addiction.

“It was absolutely buzzing. People were just delighted to be out again at a do, dressed up, and all for a good cause,” said one of the event’s organisers, adding: “It was a brilliant night.”
