Royal Enfield Festival on the Royal Canal, Co. Kildare

Clear waters and bright sunshine presented the local and overseas anglers fishing this annual festival on the Royal Canal with challenging fishing. It was local angler Conor Browne who came out tops with the winning weight and fine nets of roach on both days for 9lbs 5oz and 14lbs 7oz and a festival win. Mike White from the UK finished in second place with Pat Barley finishing 3rd overall.
