Adrian Osterloh of Lough Ree Laneborough Angling Hub reports that Ballyleague/Lanesborough was host to the 2018 International Coarse Fishing Festival over the Bank Holiday week-end.

The areas fished were the Hot-stretch in Lanesborough, Kilnacarrow and the canal at Killashee.

The lovely weather seemed to minimise catches, but all in all, a good weekend’s fishing was had by all.

Congratulations to Tommy Dowd, from Cavan, who finished in top position, winning not only a nice cash prize but also the Hugh Keane Memorial Cup, a trophy kindly dedicated by the family of our late Chairman Hugh Keane.
