Edenderry Coarse Angling Club reports on their first match of the season fished at the weekend…
Well the final day of the three day festival didn’t disappoint and this year was literally a festival of ounces. It’s been the closest final day in years with Chris Grehan going into the final day with 9lb 04oz he drew an end peg on Killeen and put another 18lb 02oz on to his weight to fall just 15 ounces short of top man Bob Clough Warrington with 28lb 05oz. Bob’s display over the week has been outstanding as he drew mid section all week and he thoroughly deserved his victory – a brilliant bloke too who lives for his fishing.
We have to take our hats off to the Station House and the two Emma’s who’s hospitality was outstanding and they way they looked after us all week and put on a brilliant night for the presentation last night on behalf of the club thank you girls!
Again thank you to our sponsors John Foley and Pat Morrissey to which the club is forever grateful. That’s it for another year so roll on next year!
