The weather over the past week has been very good with dry spells and warm in the evenings.

Lough Ennell:

Lough Ennell anglers were out once again fishing the Rex Beaumont Cup on Sunday the 16th of September.  Conditions were not the best with very windy wet weather for most of the day.  However four fish were weighed in and John Brennan won the day with a fine trout of 5.792 lb.
