Lough Muckno to Host European Police Coarse Angling Championships 2012

#ANGLING - Inland Fisheries Ireland will sponsor the European Police Coarse Angling Championships on Lough Muckno in Co Monaghan from 5-6 October 2012.

According to the Irish Angling Development Alliance (IADA), delegates from around Europe met at the Glencarn Hotel in Castleblaney last week to plan the event and visit local amenities.

The organising committee commented: “The response was so good that it now looks like 22 teams of five will be in attendance in the area for a period of approximately 10 days, with many team members, spouses and friends spending a further seven days after the event.”

Contingents from the Netherlands and Italy are expected to field the greatest number of teams competing in the championships, which bring with them a massive economic benefit for the region.

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.
