Derrygonnelly Women’s Institute

Derrygonnelly Women’s Institute meet on the third Monday of each month from September to May at 8pm in the Tir Navar Centre. An annual programme is organised with a speaker attending each meeting. We have an annual outing in June and a Christmas Party in December.

The W.I. is part of a world wide women’s organisation, including The Irish Country Women’s Association under the umbrella of the Associated Country Women of the World (also known as the ACWW), with its motto:

“To unite in promoting any work which makes for the betterment of our homes and the development and

improvement of rural and urban life through social and educational activities”.

Derrygonnelly is one of nine Institutes in Fermanagh which in W.I. circles is known as the Erne Area, and the members participate in the Erne Area Bowling Competition and the Area Quiz.  Within Northern Ireland there are twenty two Areas.  W.I. Headquarters in N. Ireland is situated in Belfast.
