There are expected to be 10 speeches at the fence this evening, with the main local issue that is the subject of  protestis fracking.

As many as 2,000 could parade through Enniskillen tonight, with groups assembling in the Library car park at 6.30pm. Police presence in Enniskillen has been noticeably stepped up and the Herald are assured they are prepared for ‘every contingency’.

The parade will leave at 7pm.
