Wexford Hosts 24th Winter Shore Angling Festival

3rd January 2012
Wexford Hosts 24th Winter Shore Angling Festival

#ANGLING - The beaches of east Wexford will again play host to the 24th Winter Shore Angling Festival from 26-28 January.

The cream of sea match angling talent from the United Kingdom and Ireland will be taking advantage of the "exceptional" catches of codling and coalfish in the area as of late, as previously reported on Afloat.ie.

First prize for individuals in 2012 will be €500, apart from two- and four-man competitions and optional pools.

Headquarters for the three-day event will be Seán Óg’s Complex in Kilmuckridge, where accommodation can be reserved through the competition organisers with a special rate of €110 for four nights (breakfast included).

The entry fee of €150 includes a special presentation dinner where trophies will be presented for first, second and third place overall.

For entry details contact Warren Doyle, 98 Seacrest, Bray, Co Wicklow at 086 8069961 (evenings only) or [email protected]

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.
