'Scouting in Fermanagh'

 

Maurice Lee, President of Fermanagh Scouting has recently published a book "Scouting in Fermanagh" in aid of Charity.

The book documents over 100 years of Scouting within Fermanagh containing 224 pages and over 500 photographs.

Having been involved in many different roles within Fermanagh Scouting Maurice always had an interest to find out more about Scouting within the county over the years. Some time ago he decided to take this further hence the Book "Scouting in Fermanagh".
