Shane Dunne wins Connaught Match Group October festival at Donamon


Shane Dunne from Connaught Match Group reports on their 2 day October Festival…

Connaught Match Group 2 day October festival was held on the River Suck at Donamon. Rising water levels in the week leading up to the competition made it difficult for the fishing but also for access onto sections of the river.

Anglers from Cavan, Mayo, Monaghan and Louth along with local anglers took part over the weekend.

There was still plenty of fish to be caught over the weekend with mostly roach caught with a few skimmers making a welcome appearance.

Thanks to the local IFI staff who continue to maintain and upgrade existing platforms on the section on Donamon and other sections on the River Suck. Their support is much appreciated.

Thanks to the Leyden family in Castlecoote Lodge once again for supporting the club in running these events it’s much appreciated by all.
