Great turn-out of juniors for our Ryder Cup

We had a great turn-out of juniors for our Ryder Cup which was held in Bohernabreena on 1st September.  Four of the most experienced juniors in the club took part to try to win one of our junior prizes.  Owen O’Driscoll won the event with a fish of 1.140lbs.  Second was Mark Curran with a fish of  0.965lbs and third place was our national final winner, Robert Farrington with a fish from the top lake weighing  0.37lbs.  Almha McDonnell brought a lot of fish to her flies but luck wasn’t on her side and unfortunately, didn’t land one.  All juniors received a fly line of their choice for their efforts and we hope to see them at our next competition which is the Pasker Cup in October. The D.T.A.A. regard juvenile angling as a very important part of the club and encourage all juvenile members to take part in our annual outing and competitions and, like the four anglers named above, come along to our fly tying evenings which take place over the winter months.


The winner of the senior competition was Gerry Heaslip with a fish weighing 2.915lbs, second place with 2 fish for 2.88lbs Gary Coakley  and third place was Cathal McDonnell also 2 fish weighing 2.30lbs.  Hope to see you all again at our next competition which takes place on Saturday 5th October in Lough Owel.  Contact Fran Nugent for more information.
