Finally, congratulations to overall Festival winner Shane Dunne.

All the anglers that fished over the weekend wish to thank Mary Leyden from Castlecoote Lodge for her hospitality in hosting the event and providing accommodation for travelling anglers to the area.

Thanks to inland fisheries Ireland for their continued maintenance and upgrading of venues in the area which is top class access on both Donamon and Emlagh. Without access like this festivals wouldn’t be possible.

Well done to all the winners and Section winners.

Thanks to all the anglers who fished from near and far. Hopefully see everyone again soon.

Go fishing…
