    Finea (sometimes spelt Finnea) is a very small village located to the south of Lough Sheelin and is on the upper River Inny system.  It is situated in the Upper Shannon Region on the borders of Co Westmeath and Cavan as indicated on the thumbnail map on the right hand column.


    This guide covers the Upper River Inny, Lough Sheelin and a few small Coarse lakes, including Lough Kinale being the most renowned. Lough Kinale boasts the Irish Record Specimen Roach/Bream Hybrid caught  by  Dan Smith from Dublin while fishing from an anchored boat with his partner Ken Garry on Sunday June 13th 1999.The fish weighed  5lbs 14.5ozs, which is almost 10ozs over the earlier record weight of 5 lbs 4 and 5/8ozs caught by Garnett Coulter on the River Bann on the 19/04/98.

    Important: Anglers please note that Lough Sheelin is classed as a trout fishery which permits pike angling subject to regulations for the fishery. All angling here closes on October 12th, including pike fishing. The Inny Catchment is subject to a fishing permit charge
