Ulster, Ireland and British Lions legend Stephen Ferris will be the guest speaker as Enniskillen Rugby Football Club's Gala Ball returns on Saturday, March 23 in the Killyhevlin Hotel.

It is a fitting and welcome return for this fundraising gala ball after an absence for a number of years especially as there is much to celebrate currently at the club.

This last year has been full of accolades for the club as former player Robert Baloucoune is currently enjoying a meteoric rise through the ranks of Ulster rugby, scoring tries on the European stage for his Province topping off his success on the Irish 7s circuit.

Alongside Robert, Ireland star Will Addison has chosen to affiliate himself with Enniskillen R.F.C thanks to his Fermanagh parentage.

The growth of the Ladies section over the past decade has yielded its own stars, with former Enniskillen players, Kathryn Dane and Claire Boles, both featuring for Ireland in this year's Six Nations.

These achievements are thanks to the important work at grass roots level, from their mini rugby section to their youth boys and girls, all the way up to our senior men and ladies.

This is made possible through the work of countless volunteers and the help of the community and local businesses.

The Club Management Committee are currently preparing an ambitious development plan for the club which will seek to improve on and off-field resources and to safeguard the promotion of rugby at Mullaghmeen in the years to come. The proceeds of the gala ball will be used to assist with the implementation of the club's development plan.

Starting with a champagne reception at 7pm it promises to be a fantastic night with TV presenter and journalist Adrian Logan sure to provide plenty of entertainment as host and compère. Afterwards there will be dancing to top local band Full Moon Fever.
