KAI tell us: Sunday May 29th 2016

What a fantastic day! Today saw the very first Fishing for Pieta event in Oaklands lake New Ross. 56 anglers came together to raise awareness to mental health issues in Ireland, people and clubs from all over the country came together to show support for Pieta!

Our target was 1500 euro but we smashed it by raising over 4000 euro, it will be a few days before the full tally is in but a huge well done to anyone and everyone that showed their support”!!!!!

Killinarden Angling Initiative

KAI was set up in March 2014 in Killinarden, Tallaght. Its principle aims are to promote, develop and improve angling in the Killinarden and the greater west Tallaght area and is affiliated with the National Coarse Fishing Federation Ireland. During the summer months the main work of the initiative is taking young people from Killinarden on fishing courses .The Initiative has also been a catalyst in setting up a children’s and Adult fishing club in Killinarden for many of these young people and giving them a hobby they can enjoy for life.

Go fishing…
