Ireland's Shore Anglers Take Gold In Europe

Ireland's Shore Anglers Take Gold In Europe

#Angling - Ireland's shore anglers hooked the gold medal at the European Federation of Sea Anglers' 2013 Shore Championships in the Netherlands recently.

As the Belfast Telegraph reports, Ireland secured the European shore angling title for the first time with a points tally of 165 in the three-day competition, just nine points ahead of strong contenders Italy.

And it was the Irish teams success on day two that clinched it for them, with Michael Quinn and Warren Doyle taking wins in their zones, the latter by just three fish, while Joe Byrne and Clive Ivory took second and third in their respective zones.

The Belfast Telegraph has much more on the story HERE.

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.
