#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.
