Feeder Team Ireland


In 2014 the NCFFI Feeder Team celebrated a historic silver medal win for Ireland at the 4th World Feeder Fishing Championships on Inniscarra Lake. In the last three years 9 different anglers have represented Ireland at the World Championships and Team Manager Brenton Sweeney continues to strive towards another championship medal. Team Ireland Feeder currently ranks 12th out of a field of 38 Nations.

An All Ireland Junior Feeder Championships has now been established to take place in October annually to bring forward newcomers to our sport.
