The Moy Fishery was very honoured and privileged to welcome his Excellency, Mr Loyola Hearns, Canadian Ambassador to Ireland, to the Ridge Pool during his recent trip to Ballina. Ambassador Hearns, a very keen Atlantic salmon fly fisherman, has led a distinguished career in Canadian politics, culminating in his position as Minister for Fisheries. Despite his valiant efforts, the Moy salmon would not succumb to his efforts. However, he has vowed to return again for another throw later in the season.

His Excellency, Canadian Ambassador to Ireland, Mr Loyola Hearns.
