Enniskillen – Fifty Years On

On Saturday 1st October, a group of 30 UAH members ventured to the island town of Enniskillen to partake in a walking tour led by Hugh Dixon, architectural historian.

Posted on: 12th October 2022

Fifty years on from compiling his list of the Buildings of Enniskillen, participants were treated to a melancholic trip down memory lane.

A day of reminiscence, seeing if Hugh agreed with what he once wrote some fifty years ago, participants were privileged enough to visit the Enniskillen Castle Museum, the Convent of Mercy Chapel, Enniskillen Presbyterian Church, St Macartin’s Cathedral, St Michael’s Church, before leisurely strolling across the Westbridge towards Enniskillen Royal Grammar School, Lough Shore Sire (Formerly Portora). Other stops throughout the day included that of the Buttermarket, the Town Hall and the Courthouse.
