A LARGE crowd gathered on Friday night past at a Fracking Awareness gig held in Charlie’s Bar. 

Organised by Fermanagh Fracking Awareness Network (FFAN), many local acts responded to the call.

The night opened with Bert Woodshack, followed by acoustic acts, namely Michael Smith and Luke Burns.

The DMs played their debut gig, while The Velour Fog were swiftly followed by Cloud 9, who closed the night.
Fundraiser for FFAN, Janie Cronie, commented:

“It was great – there was a good turnout. Most of the advertising was done through the FFAN Facebook page, so everybody knew why they were there.”

Janie said that the aim of the gig was both the fund-raising aspect and to keep the debate over the controversial shale gas extraction method ‘up front’.

The fight to ban fracking in Fermanagh continues.
