Seven members of our club were selected for the Connacht team which participated in the inter provincials on Saturday, June 30, and Sunday July 1.

The venue for this competition was Iniscarra, Co. Cork. The Connacht team took 2nd place after Ulster, followed by Munster in 3rd position and Leinster in 4th. This was a great achievement for these young anglers.

Two members of the Connacht team, Mark Fullen and Josh Kelly, have been selected along with six other excellent anglers for the Junior Team Ireland 2012. They will be representing their country in the Celtic Cup which will be held in Cork in August (dates to be confirmed). Josh was also a member of the Junior Team Ireland 2011 that won the Celtic Cup in Scotland. Indeed our club chairperson and manager, Brian Bohan, has himself been selected for the Senior Team Ireland 2012. Well done to all our club members who have qualified at this level and wishing you all continued success.

The club would like to thank all the parents who travelled to Cork and who helped out at the training sessions and events throughout the year.
