The overall winners shall book a place for themselves on the National junior team which shall compete in European and international competitions in 2014. It was great to see so many young anglers battle it out for a place and very encouraging to see four girls in the thick of it all.

Further information is available on the Junior Team Ireland Ncffi face book page.

Rinn-Shannon & District Angling Club: The Rinn-Shannon & District Angling Club shall hold their Annual General Meeting this Friday at 9pm in the Canon Donohue Hall. All members are requested to attend and new members are welcome.

Please note that all members are asked to bring a passport sized photograph, which shall be used, on all 2014 membership cards. This is to improve security on the Lough Rowan fishery.

Lough Rinn “Chilly Dippers”: The lough Rinn Chilly Dippers are holding their annual dip into the freezing water of Lough Rinn on Christmas day at noon. The Chilly dippers have done Trojan work over the past fifteen years in raising funds for local charities and community groups such as Leitrim M.S., Eivers lane Creche and the Special Needs classroom in Marian College.

This year the Dippers are fundraising for Special wheelchair accessible fishing ramps for use on Lough Rowan.

Rinn-Shannon & District Angling Club members are requested to join in the fun and take out sponsorship cards for this very worthy cause, for further details please contact Peter or Hugh Logan Main street.

Until next time…Tight lines.
