This years championships took place on the Grand Canal at Prosperous over the weekend of the 29th & 30th of April. A hidden gem of the Leinster Canals the venue produced many roach over a pound with one close to 2lbs and tench up to 4lbs for the competitors. The fishing was patchy in places but the weekend was filled with the usual craic on the bank with fine hospitality from Dowlings at Prosperous.
Congratulations to the winners:-
1st Fint Brennan 19lbs 8oz
2nd Jimmy Kelly 17lbs 5oz
3rd Robert Buick 16lbs 13oz
Thanks to all who attended – numbers were down with just 23 fishing this year perhaps due to the number of events on the calendar these days? Thank you to Waterways Ireland for their continued support.
Watch out for the summer round of festivals on the canals this June and the junior version of this event taking place on Saturday 20th May. For details of these and more visit the Event Calendar here
