Martin McKenna PRO of Emy and District anglers reports:

A fantastic days fishing was had by the 17 club members, who took part in the Eugene Mulligan / Pat McMahon competition on Emy Lough on Sunday last, April 26th. Of the 17 anglers, 3 were youths. Many thanks to Enda Fields, Youth Coordinator, for his hard work and encouragement with these youngsters. In total 14 fish were landed – the best result for a long time. Conditions were cold, windy and showery but these hardy bucks stuck it out for the 4 hour duration of the competition to produce a great result.

Afterwards we returned to a cozy High House, where Seamus had a grand fire lit in his stove and in the pool room where we gathered for the presentation. Monica Skinnader had much needed food prepared for us – thank you Monica. With the heaviest fish and winner of the Eugene Mulligan cup presented by Eugenes brother, Vincey, was Tommy McCaffery, with a fish 2lb 8 ozs.
