A great performance from David Herron finishing first in his section on both days to win the match overall and Cathal Hughes second in section daily including a top match weight of 41lbs. BSI Sensas took the top positions with their Green team in second position followed by the Tubertini match club in third place.

Some good bream were caught

Well done to all the teams who took part and for John Heys of Kingfisher AC for hosting and running the event.

BSI Sensas are currently preparing to represent Ireland at the Championships staged in France at the end of the month. Their entry costs are subsidised by the NCFFI but overseas trips are expensive and they are holding a Race Night Fundraiser this Saturday 8th July at the The Cottage Inn Bar & Grill. If you would like to help them out you can buy a horse or jockey or even name a race. For more details contact Conor Browne

NEXT UP is the All-Ireland Feeder Clubs Championships this weekend at Lough Muckno
