On Tuesday 20th May, a party of anglers from the Mullingar area set out from Killala Harbour for a day’s fishing with skipper Donal Kennedy. Conditions were reasonable, with a light North Easterly breeze and a moderate North Westerly swell.

The heavy rain on the day did not deter the keen anglers who, straight away on the first drift, hit into a nice shoal of mackerel. The next drift further out in the bay produced a number of nice cod along with some coalfish. Pouting were in plentiful supply, so were ling. The next few drifts produced some more good pollack, coalfish and cod. The skipper, Donal Kennedy, himself showed the party that there were some more fine cod to be caught by boating a fine double figure cod.
