A winning catch

Paul does it again at Inniscarra

It’s a double win for Paul Leese who wins the O’Callaghans Feeder Cup with a total weight of 57kg over the 3 days! Fellow County Cavan anglers Brenton Sweeney and Neil Mazurek took 2nd and 3rd place with Peter Mills finishing in 4th.

Full results table

Congratulations to all the winners and everyone who took part but especially Paul who played out an awesome performance on his first return to Inniscarra since he fished for silver with Team Ireland in 2014. After high water levels at the end of last week and possible flood warnings everything turned out okay and the fishing turned out to be fantastic. The sections remained consistent for both festivals with lots or roach and hybrids. On the last three days alone the 31 anglers have caught over 978kg, that’s 10.52kg per man per day; terrific weights in match conditions.

Inniscarra Lake Tourism Ltd would like to thank all those who travelled to Coachford Co. Cork to participate, Kevin Gray Match Organiser, helpers and photographers Pat Falvey, Peter William Turner, Tracey Martin and Eileen Martin of O’Callaghans Bar & Guest House our sponsors and hosts.

Coachford Village is the gateway to the 2.8km Greenway which provides secure parking behind your peg with other stretches of water such as the ‘Garden Centre’ close by.  Club and leisure anglers are more than welcome with the local club members more than happy to provide advice or help arrange a friendly match. In the village you purchase your permit, buy bait and tackle-up whilst staying in one of a number of B&B’s in the area.  Close by are several hotels and restaurants that welcome the anglers and Blarney and Cork City are just a short drive away. For those bringing the family there are plenty of attractions close by; a little further afield there is Killarney and Kenmare where there are many things to do, and not far from some excellent beaches.
