Munster Coarse Anglers report on their 1st trip back to plassey in 20 years…


It’s well over 20 years ago that we held a match on this stretch of the Shannon. Back in the day Plassey, in the heart of Limerick City, was world renowned for big catches of bream. Indeed I saw my late father put back a 104lb bag of bream without making the top 4 in a match. However it was roach and dace that made up the weighs today with lots of bites for every one.

  • 1st Kevin Leahy 24lb 4oz (feeder)
  • 2nd Ian Kelsey 16lb 02oz (on the bolo)
  • 3rd Steve Wright 11lb 03oz feeder and whip
  • 4th Ray Linton 9lb 14oz whip 

We won’t leave it so long for our next visit…
