All credit to the juniors for representing their province, some of whom had fished the All Ireland Championships the day before, and others for whom it was only their second match. It was an enjoyable day for everyone. Our juniors are the future of our sport.
The Provinicial Council present teams at the championships annually with the event taking place the day after the junior championships on the same venues providing a weekend’s fishing for all taking part. The Junior All-Ireland and the Inter-Provincial Championships will take place over the weekend of the 27th & 28th August in 2016.
