    Innisacrra Bridge - Congratulations to O'Donovan Engineering and thank you for the fabulous job on Rooves Bridge. 25 countries, 25 flags. The Bridge has never looked so well. The boys in the factory even came in over their holidays to complete this job. Well done to all involved

    Irish Angling Festivals

    The Irish coarse angling festival is known for its combination of 3 to 5 days of match angling, good hospitality and great fishing; the ideal anglers holiday! The festivals are usually run voluntarily by coarse angling clubs and local communities across Ireland on a variety of venues and offer a full payout on entry and often some sponsorship monies and tackle prizes thrown in.

    All the festivals listed are open to anglers of all abilities. Many offer a one day open match prior to the main event and with festivals back to back it’s possible to fish for 14 days non-stop in some areas!

    Festivals are subject to change so it’s best to check with the match organisers first
