THE latest MUGAs have been launched in locations across the county.

The Multi Use Games Areas have been rolled out across 13 areas – with the latest Council minutes indicating that more are on the way.


As part of £660, 365 funding, five MUGAs were officially opened on Monday and Tuesday of this week.

The five were opened across Kesh, Garrison, Belcoo, Derrylin and Lisbellaw.

Fermanagh District Council received funding from SWARD towards the development of these five with £471,961 funding from South West Action for Rural development (SWARD) and match funding of £188,404.08 from Fermanagh District Council.

Areas that currently have MUGAS include: Ballinamallard, Belcoo, Brookeborough, Derrygonnelly, Derrylin, Ederney, Enniskillen in Loughview Drive and Windmill Heights, Garrison, Kesh Lisbellaw, Lisnaskea and Newtownbutler.

The council confirmed in its minutes from the last monthly council meeting that it is to continue to engage with communities in Belnaleck, Cavanaleck, Kinawley and Tempo to agree suitable sites.

MUGAs are to be provided in Belleek, Brookeborough, Donagh and Lack.

The council also was advised that Clabby, Irvinestown and Tamlaght had not ‘demonstrated sufficient need to warrant the spending of public monies’.


Issues arose regarding MUGAs in Maguiresbridge and Roslea, however the council is seeking to work with these communities to resolve the issues.
