Fermanagh & Western FA

The Fermanagh & Western Football Association is one of four regional FAs within Northern Ireland and affiliated to the Irish FA, the others being the County Antrim FA (also known as the North East Ulster FA), the Mid-Ulster FA and the North-West FA.

HistoryEdit

The Fermanagh & Western FA was founded in 1907 following the expansion of the Fermangah & South Tyrone FA (itself founded in 1904). Although its responsibilities are now bound by the borders of Northern Ireland, initially the F&W FA ran football as far south as Sligo, Clones and Cavan.

CompetitionsEdit

The three primary competitions organised by the Fermanagh & Western FA are the Fermanagh & Western Intermediate Cup, the Mercer League and the Mulhern Cup.
