Shay O’Donnell reports that Navan Coarse Angling Club (NCAC) have formed a partnership with Inland Waterways Association of Ireland (IWAI) (Boyne Branch) with a view to restoring the Navan end of the Boyne Navigation as a general amenity and as a coarse fishery. A licence was granted to IWAI from Parks & Wildlife to clear a 700 meter stretch of the canal. This was done on two cleanup days (16th & 23rd of Feb) by NCAC & IWAI. Discussions with all the relevant parties includng IFI are ongoing as to the next phase of the development. There is alot of momentum locally for this project and we are determined to make it a sucess. Due to the fact that the cutting season ends today it is unlikely that there will be much more work completed before October 2013.

If anyone would be interested in volunteering or indeed joining Navan Coarse Angling Club please contact Shay O’Donnell (or any committee member). Shay can be contacted at 087 9582537  or by email [email protected] 

Membership forms are available at East Coast Angling, Anglers World and Clarkes Sports Den, Navan.
