Cast Your Nets to Skipper & Angling Shows

16th February 2013
Cast Your Nets to Skipper & Angling Shows

#SkipperEXPO –Within a fortnight two shows will be held on either side of the country, the Irish Skipper Expo (1-2 March) in Galway and as previously reported starting today, the Ireland Angling Expo Show in Dublin.

The Skipper Expo Show to be held at the Galway Bay Hotel (10am-5pm each day) will have among its exhibitors, leading seafood processor companies, boatyard firms, net-suppliers, marine electronics, engineering businesses and chandlers. Admission is free, for further details click HERE.

The Angling Expo Show at the National Show Centre, Swords, now in its 14th year, has become a major national event for anglers here and from the UK. According to a recent survey, there are 250,000 anglers alone in Ireland, not to mention angling tourists across the Irish Sea.

Coinciding with the show there will be the Irish Speciman Fish Committee Awards Day, which takes place this afternoon at the nearby Bewleys Dublin Airport Hotel between 2.30-4.30pm.

Also at the show will be the Dublin Angling Initiative (DAI) Kid's Zone, and where many of the country's most experienced anglers will be passing on expert knowledge.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
