The UDA would claim that they had people to cover the Fermanagh. I also know people who would have made claims about their connections/being in the orginisation. Which I always found to be a bit strange. I also know people who ran/run a caravan park in which they had someone to stay who is now a very well known loyalist terrorist.Do you think their(sic) are UDA in Fermanagh?

1981 no less.
During 1981, Paisley attempted to create a Protestant loyalist volunteer militia—called the (Ulster) Third Force—which would work alongside the police and army to fight the IRA.

Paisley helped organize further night-time rallies on 1 April, where large groups of men brandished more pieces of paper. They were held on hillsides near Gortin, Armagh and Newry. At Gortin, the police were attacked and two police vehicles overturned. On 16 November, Paisley addressed a large Third Force rally in Enniskillen, where hundreds of men marched in a show of strength. Paisley organized a loyalist 'Day of Action' on 23 November, to pressure the British government to take a harder line against the IRA.
