Janette McManus of Buille Toll B&B in Ballinamore reports on the memorial competion for Manfred Pellegrinii…
We had a special memorial fishing competition for a very special fisherman from Italy called Manfred Pellegrinii who has been coming to Ireland for 20 years and considered Ireland as his second home. He died from cancer last September at the young age of 52 years. We fished his memorial competition at Drumcoura lake in Ballinamore Co. Leitrim on May 9th. The local pike association, his family and friends from Italy all took part.
We sponsored a trophy from Buille Toll B&B It was won by the local fisherman Micheal Crosbie with a pike weighing almost 15lb.
