Tommy Campbell returns to his homeland to give talk at celebration of Fermanagh Trade Unionism



Tommy Campbell, Vice President of Aberdeen Trades Union Council was the guest speaker at the official opening of the exhibition, "A History of Fermanagh Trade Unionism" on Saturday 12th October 2019 at Fermanagh County Museum, Enniskillen Castle.

Tommy is the former secretary of Fermanagh Council of Trade Unions

The exhibition is the last in a series of the centenary events to acknowledge, remember and respect the massive contribution by our forefathers in organising workers in Fermanagh.

Many of the rights of workers today were hard fought for and it is only right that these struggles and campaigns are centre staged in this the centenary year.

There is an amazing collection of badges including a number of local ones, plus other artefacts supported by information boards on exhibition.

The exhibition was officially opened by Councillor Diana Armstrong, Vice-Chair of Fermanagh & Omagh District Council.

The exhibition continues until 25 January 2020..
