POLICE have said that a planned parade in Enniskillen on Easter Monday passed off without incident.

The parade was held by the Apprentice Boys of Derry (ABOD) organisation, and marked 11 years since the parade has taken place in Enniskillen. 

Police estimate that approximately 7,500 people were in attendance at the parade, including those who were taking part in the procession, and also spectating.

A PSNI spokesperson said: "A planned parade in Enniskillen on Monday, April 1 passed off without incident.

"Officers were on the ground assisting with traffic control throughout the day, and we thank road users, members of the public and local businesses for their patience and understanding due to some unavoidable disruption."

The parade was organised by the South West Ulster Amalgamated Committee of the Apprentice Boys of Derry, which is chaired by DUP councillor, Errol Thompson. 

Councillor Thompson thanked all those who turned out for what was a "once-in-a-decade" event.

"I want to take this opportunity to thank, the many thousands of people from across Northern Ireland, the Republic of Ireland, England, Scotland, and further afield, who were in attendance in Enniskillen for the Apprentice Boys Easter Monday Parade," Councillor Thompson said.
