Description

An expansion at Portora and a bit of a free-for-all football match in the yard. 

Portora Royal School located in Enniskillen, County Fermanagh, Northern Ireland, was one of the 'Public Schools' founded by the Royal Charter in 1608, by James I, making it one of the oldest schools in Ireland at the time of its closure. In 2016, Portora Royal School amalgamated with Enniskillen Collegiate Grammar School and became the mixed Enniskillen Royal Grammar School. 

There are quite a few famous alumni of Portora including Oscar Wilde, Samuel Beckett and Neil Hannon.
