The Angling Council of Ireland (ACI) elected its first president at an event in Dublin recently.
The Irish Times reports that Hugh O'Rourke, who has served as ACI secretary since its inception in 2002, was elected unanimously as head of Ireland's governing body for sea, coarse, pike, trout, salmon and sea trout angling.
The ACI's constitution was also ratified at the meeting in Sport HQ in Park West, at which some disappointment was expressed at the council's failure to gain a place on the board of Inland Fisheries Ireland.
Later, an awards ceremony in the afternoon saw John O'Brien presented with a plaque for winning individual silver and team gold at the 2010 World Championship of Shore Angling in South Africa.
