#InlandWaters - Waterways Ireland advises all masters and users of the Erne Navigation that a fireworks display will take place at Castle Island in Enniskillen on Hallowe’en night (Tuesday 31 October) from 8pm to 8.30pm.

Light Up the Lough is a flotilla of lit-up vessels from Erne Paddlers, Row the Erne and Erne Boat Hire Ltd. The boats will be dressed in lights and will circle around Castle Island four an hour.

Passing vessels must keep wash to a minimum and stay clear of this activity.

Masters of vessels are advised that there will be no mooring permitted at Waterways Ireland Head Office moorings nor at the Henry Street Public Jetties on the day of the event in the interest of public safety.
