Liam O’Brien and Sheila Bromley report that Ballybay Angling Club held a match yesterday Sunday 22nd June on Lough Muckno, Castleblayney in aid of the Irish Cancer Society. The fishing was extremely tough but despite this Ron Jordan came out on tops and had his choice of the prizes, as did all the anglers who were placed. Most importantly the event raised a whopping €2090.50 for the Irish Cancer Society.
