WEE 5 WEE7 swap

Just a quick reminder to all that the venues for WEE 5 & 7 have swapped. Stormont for No.5 on the 5th June and UUJ for No.7 on the 19th. The more observant will have noticed this change was put up on the BOF (and hence master calendar) and the WEE website some time ago, but I somehow missed the LVO web page fixture list. Apologies from your Fixtures Sec 🙁

Fixtures List Update for 2017

Get those diaries back out.  After a couple of months of trying to master WordPress I think I have all this years NI events up on the fixtures list – along with some other major events in Ireland and UK.
