A dignified Act of Remembrance took place in Lisnaskea on Remembrance Sunday.

Held at Holy Trinity Church, Lisnaskea, the Remembrance service was conducted by Rev. Alan Capper.

During the Act of Remembrance, a bugler performed The Last Post and Reveille. As the poppy wreaths were laid at the War Memorial in the church, a lone piper played.

Wreaths were laid by ex-servicemen, and representatives from the Scouts in the parish, and the PSNI and RNLI.

A two-minute silence was also observed by all present.

The Remembrance Sunday parade in Lisnaskea was led by Lisnaskea Accordion Band, and included ex-servicemen and representatives of local uniformed organisations.

South East Fermanagh Foundation (SEFF) held an Act of Remembrance at the Memorial located within the grounds of Holy Trinity, Church of Ireland, Lisnaskea on Friday, November 10 at 11am.

Well over 80 members were joined by approximately 30 pupils and teaching staff from Moat Primary School, local elected representatives, the Chief Executive Officer of the Victims and Survivors Service, Andrew Walker, and many others.

Kenny Donaldson, SEFF’s Director of Services, said: “We are indebted to Rev. Rodney Beacom for conducting the service; SEFF’s Chairman, Eric Brown, for facilitating the exhortation; Gordon McKeown and Kelly Beacom for music [The Last Post and lament].

“We also acknowledge Lauren McKeown, who read the poem, ‘Love is’; David Kelly, who read the scripture lesson; the children of Moat Primary School, who read the prayers; and Sarah Bogue, daughter of Derek Breen, RUCGC, who laid the organisational wreath.”

Prayers were also said in respect of the conflict in the Middle East.

“We acknowledge all the children who laid the poppy crosses which all bore the name of an innocent remembered on the memorial, some 56 names, and the families who came to honour their loved ones,” said Mr. Donaldson.
