The FEEDERFEST IRELAND event in Inniscarra was a great success.  The competition ran from October 26th to Oct 31st and anglers arrived in Coachford as early as the previous Sunday when the sections were selected with A to C on the Greenway along with D and E some of Inniscarra’s traditional feeder sections that fish well. A practise match on Wednesday allowed the organisers a last look at the pegs before sections were drew.

HQ for the event was O’Callaghans Bar & Guest House where anglers were ask to kindly dip their nets on arrival to the area and purchase permits for the venue.

A knock up along the Greenway on Sunday 23rd produced a top weight of 12kg of roach & hybrids.
