The competition fishing area has been carefully chosen to include a section on the River Shannon.  This is open for all contestants throughout the competition but will also serve as the fishing area should we restrict access to the lough due to unfavourable weather conditions.

The competition will extend to appox. 3km of the River Shannon with the natural boundary at the railway bridge (1).  To the South we will fish as far as a point where the lough narrows in an area called Rannigan in Co. Roscommon to the West  53.562421, -8.008360 and Collom in Co. Longford 53.566758, -7.980589 to the East (2).  The area known as the Hot Water Stretch is out of bounds.
