Police in Fermanagh have confirmed that a young man has died after being recovered from the River Erne in Belleek last evening (Thursday).

A post-mortem will take place to determine the 27-year-old’s cause of death but the PSNI said this afternoon that it is not being treated as suspicious at this time.

A helicopter, two ambulances and fire brigade personnel were called out to an emergency incident in the border village. 

The emergency arose after the man apparently got into difficulty not far from the Glen Eden Hotel. A spokesman for the Northern Ireland Ambulance Service told the Herald they received a 999 call at 17:59 on Thursday 5 April to report a male patient in the water near Belleek.

He was taken from the river by the emergency services and given initial medical aid at the scene before being taken by ambulance to the South West Acute Hospital in Enniskillen.

 


Michael Kelly (22) of Silver Hill, Bundoran appeared at Enniskillen Magistrates Court on Monday facing several motoring offences.

One Fermanagh pensioner has urged everyone to “pay every possible bill through the post office” in order to protect...

There will be many around Fermangh rising early in the morning for this worthy cause.
