Padraig Carroll reports on the fishing on the Grand Canal at Tullamore…

Johnny Cunningham memorial cup

On Sunday 26th August, the Tullamore and District anglers held the junior past v present Johnny Cunningham memorial cup. The day started out wet and windy but it didn’t stop the 17 junior anglers from turning out and their determination payed off with some bumper bags of fish. This was a charity competition and well done to all the juniors as they raised over €450 for ILFA. The club would like to thank Johnny’s wife Marian for presenting the cup.
