Ballinamore Tourism & Angling Association are holding a five day open match fishing festival from Monday 20th to Friday 24th May.  Set in the Irish Lakelands and based around the lively town of Ballinamore we hope this match will attract the new and returning angler to this fabulous area, a favourite amongst the Dutch and Belgium anglers. Ballinamore provides a warm welcome with it’s lively high street full of bars and restaurants. Special match offers are available as well as accommodaiton deals.

Ballinamore Tourism & Angling Association have supported the prize fund with the addition of €250 and Inland Fisheries will provide sponsorship in the form of €500 of tackle. Entry is €150 + €10 match fee for five days of competition angling.

This five day open match commences with the opening at Shortt’s bar on Sunday at 7pm where anglers can draw their rotation of venues. The venues will not be revealed until this time but expect them to include the lovely Lake Garadice made famous recently by the World Pairs Anging Championship in 2012 and where you can now ‘park behind your peg’.

To book in call + 44 7711607200, mail [email protected] or call in at ‘The Forge’ tackle shop in Ballinamore or Irish Bait & Tackle in Ballyconnell.  Travel & acommodation packages are available with Ireland Travel Plus.

We welcome all anglers back to Ireland and the town of Ballinamore!
