The Leitrim youths coarse fishing club to my knowledge is the only youth club in the country committed to youth coarse fishing in ireland they are a NCFFI club. One of its members Josh Kelly is on the celtic cup team that won the cup for Ireland last year. They have just finished their Spring league. The youths had to endured very cold and sometimes wet weather.
There are two age groups in the club; under 14 and under 18 which are coached by myself and with the help of parents the club is doing very well.
The Connacht under 18 league will be represented at the interprovincial in Cork on the 30 of June and the 1st of July is under way at the moment. the second of 6 matches will take place on Lough Allan this Saturday- meeting at 10 am sharp . The men’s team trials will start in the next two weeks. Any further info can be found on the Connacht face book page
