Following the announcement of the venue for the FIPSed Youth World Championships, Junior Team manager Jack Tisdall has selected his Under23 team as follows;

Rob Kavanagh, Cabra District CAC
Haydn Kelleagher, Anglers Rest AC
Aaron Hutchman, East Belfast AC
Ciaran Haughain, Lurgan AC
James O Doherty, Erne Anglers AC

The event will take place in Serbia at Smederevo on the Steelworks Canal from 1st to 9th August 2015. The venue is a ship canal that connects to the powerful Danube River and will be similar to the venue fished by the 2013 European Championships.

We are delighted that the team will again have sponsorship support from Tubertini for equipment as well as ground bait from Van Den Eynde. The team have been allocated some funding by the NCFFI and we hope to confirm the continued support of Inland Fisheries Ireland, IFI to travel to the event.

The process to select a team for the 2016 World Championships in Portugal will commence soon where the NCFFI intend to field an Under 18 and Under 23 team. Any angler interested in fishing for the Ireland Junior Teams in 2016 should contact the manager; Jack Tisdall 00 44 (0) 02866 347692 or E Mail [email protected]
