Lough Muckno Matches and Festivals group Presents their calendar of events for 2019…

With some less than expected or deserved numbers on some of our Festivals in 2018, we have ,made a few minor changes in 2019, with the temporary excusion of one Festival, and date changes to another, in order to maximise the availability to our most sought after audience`, from Mainland UK.

Strong indications now show that a resurgence in lough Muckno interest is very much on the cards for 2019, with a number of Fetivals already nearly booked out, at a cap of 50 anglers on each Festival, for this coming year at least.

Another change for 2019 is the mandatory prebooking policy now being adopted, in order to make these Festivals better and more attractive for everyone, not least the competitors, who will now know the stature of the event when booking, be assured of a fantastically competitive environment, with loads of fish in a well spaced setting, with big numbers big sponsorship, and with big Festival status by any standards in Irish Festival Angling terms.

We will offer the unique Lough Muckno range of add on attractions in 2019 in the safest, cleanest, most accessible and fair setting, in Festival angling anywhere in Ireland or beyond.
All intending competitors wishing to enter any Festival are now asked to PM this page signalling your interest in any Festival of your choice. and we will then make arrangements for your easy transfer of a non refundable but transferable deposit.

A huge interest is already evident at this stage on all 2019 Festivals so please check in as soon as possible to ensure your place on some of the most exciting Fishing and competition anywhere.
Please note that all 2018 competitors on these festivals will have first preference in the 2019 bookings and many have already signalled their intentions to book for 2019, along with several old favourites, making a welcome return.

The penultimate development project envisaged for this mighty Lough is nearing completion at South Lodge and should come on stream before Christmas when the Lough Muckno Matches and Festivals group will host an opening Coarse Angling Match Open to all on a first booked first served basis to mark the occasion.

More information on our 2019 Festivals and the completion of the south lodge Section will issue in posts on this page over the coming weeks.
