Lurgan Coarse Angling Club
The club is one of the most successful in Ireland, having won all of the main team based match fishing competitions, in some cases several times, over the last decade. The club has also a long list of International Honours earned by its members.
The club is the current Drennan Superleague title holder, having won the last event in 2007.
Our objective is to promote coarse angling in the greater Lurgan and Craigavon area.
