The E.F.S.A. European Shore Angling Championships were held last week in Kilmuckridge, Co. Wexford. The three day event was fished on a range of beaches in the (this time not so) “Sunny Southeast”.
The first day of the event saw tough conditions with a top score of 8 fish. On day tow, conditions improved considerably, but it was clearly a day for the distance casters.
On day three, however, the Irish anglers topped the charts and 31 flounders for Paul Whelan won him the zones and overall individual winner! Also a great result for the Irish A team (Shay O Neill, John Hughes, Stephen Glynn, Michael Quinn and Paul Whelan) taking top spot overall! Congratulations also to Anne Whitty on her fantastic achievement at the E.F.S.A. European Shore Angling Championships winning a total of 4 medals (Gold Ladies Winner, Gold 1st 2 Man Team, Gold 1st 4 man Team & Silver 2nd Senior) and finishing 10th overall! Well done!
