In Co Fermanagh, Northern Ireland the celebration events, over the VE Day week/weekend (6-10th May 2020) will include church services of thanksgiving, family fun day, beacon lighting, school events, band performances, gun salute and much more. Volunteers from a number of community organisations are working together to create an exciting programme of events, music and activities. The events are particularly poignant given the association of the Inniskillings Regiment which fought with great honour and distinction during WW2. Enniskillen will be the only location in Northern Ireland to host a gun salute on VE Day – 8th May at the exact time Prime Minister Winston Churchill delivered his famous Victory Speech in London at 3pm. It will also be the most westerly location in the UK to celebrate VE Day and will host one of the largest community celebrations in Northern Ireland.
