Horseman referred to Fermanagh as unionisms alamo in terms of unity, ucunf (remember that?) and the future of the west. There are no surprises here.

The trends are a continuing greening of the constituency. The swing is a 3.1% towards catholics and a further erosion of the unionist vote as seen in recent elections. The dreary steeples are receeding from the grey skies towards the clear blue water of a new republic. Mr E C Ferguson would be ill at ease with these figures but they are, nevertheless, the facts.

A certain blogger, since passed on, would recognise the accuracy of his predictions and, perhaps, permit a wry smile, to pass his lips.
