As anglers left the beach at Ballinesker on Saturday evening, one thing was sure, Chris Clark from the New Forest in the UK had surely won the individual event at the 25th Irish Winter Shore Angling Festival. However, there was still a lot of speculation as to who had won the team events. On return to Sean Ogs in Kilmuckridge the committe set about the task of working out the final positions. After a fantastially catered meal prepared and served by the staff of Sean Ogs the results were announced as outlined below.
