The Lisdoonvarna Fanore club held a competition at Ballyreen last weekend, on a beautiful sunny day with a lovely calm sea. Good fishing was enjoyed by all, with the venerable Sean Furlong taking top prize. Experience always tells! In second was Aidan O’Halloran, with James Linnane taking third spot.

A nice mix of species was caught, including pollack, dab, wrasse and conger eel. Well done to all!
