Mariners – FishComm

“It gave me great pleasure to be the main sponsor for the Mariners boat angling competition again this year,” said Cormac Burke, MD of FishComm Ltd.

“It’s always wonderful to return back to my home town every year but even more so when I can be involved in the fantastic local angling which the Mariners SAC, both on shore and at sea, have worked hard to develop and promote to the wider European angling community and has resulted in a major boost to local tourism with anglers from near and far coming to get a taste of fishing in this beautiful part of Ireland,” he added.

As well as sponsoring the main prizes for both the Mariners SAC shore and boat competitions, a prize top-of-the-range boat rod was also donated to the club by FishComm clients MMG (Maloy Maritime Group) from Norway.
