Photos: Northern Ireland’s panoramic Lough Erne Hotel gets ready for the G8 summit


NOW that Northern Ireland is more peaceful place, it’s encouraging to see it being picked to host the laste G8 bunfight. The great and good (and look out for Mr G9 Bono in attendance) will mass at the Lough Erne Hotel resort in Co Fermanagh:

The Resort is the ultimate expression in old world heritage and new world luxury, set on its very own 600 acre peninsula, between Castle Hume Lough and Lower Lough Erne, just outside Enniskillen, with stunning panoramic views from almost every vantage point.

Unless you look to the right and see the barbed wire, armed uniformed goons and balaclava enthusiasts…

PS – When we’ve got them locked up inside, can we leave them there?

PICTURE POSED BY MODEL: Temporary cell blocks which have been built at Omagh police station in Co Tyrone, which are being made available for G8 summit protests.

Issue date: Tuesday June 11, 2013. The police have diverted extra investigators, translators and forensic medical officers to the two custody sites at a former military barracks in Omagh and Musgrave Street station in Belfast to ensure cases are brought to court as quickly as possible.

  1. When policy-makers are required to take these measures to “protect” themselves from those affected by their decisions, something has gotta be damn wrong with the policy.

    • You said it. It is almost ironic that the conference should take place in N. Ireland given its history, politics and British handling of the situation.
