IFPAC, the Irish Federation of Pike Angling Clubs, has just published the dates of  All Ireland juniors qualifiers…

We have just finalised the dates for the Junior All Ireland qualifiers. Entry is FREE so please get as many young anglers along as possible. We usually get a good turnout of girls attending which is most welcome.
