Double delight as Gal Charnock wins all at Edenderry

Winner takes all- Gal Charnock won both competitions during the Edenderry Festival

It was festival season at Edenderry last week as 34 anglers headed to the midlands venue to compete in one of Ireland’s foremost canal competitions. In fact, it’s two competitions in one week, as a two-dayer (Tue & Thurs) and a three-dayer (Mon, Wed & Fri) are run side by side. Fishing was always going to be tricky, what with the bright sunshine and warm temperatures, but anglers weren’t put odd with plenty of double-figure bags coming in on day one, and that stamp of fishing was maintained throughout the festival.

The two-dayer finished up first, and it was Gal Charnock who came out on top with a 23lb weight on day two to give him the overall top spot.

Edenderry two-day festival results:
1. Gal Charnock 30-12
2. Peter Keenan 19-10
3. Gavin Charnock 18-14
4. Dara Finnegan 16-14
