Fireworks [Northern Ireland only]

Hello,

I live in Newry, and I am looking for fireworks for upcoming Halloween.

I'm looking for quality + good value, anyone recommend a place to buy? (willing to travel up as far as belfast),

cheers,

Kevin

You now need a licence to buy any fireworks which are not category one (suitable for indoor use) in Northern Ireland.

That basically means you need a licence for anything except sparklers.

That law is not enforced on category 1 or 2 fireworks, at least it wasn't last year or any previous years.
Some sellers will also sell you Category 3 without problem too

Yeah, got them already.

It was one of the shops in the Jonesboro market, it had a SALE sign up outside, and was just called 'Fireworks' if I recall correctly,

very good prices.

Yes there is. As you drive in theres a shop on the left that says - "Fireworks On Sale Here" on the shop window.
