#Angling - It was a podium finish in Portugal for Team Ireland at the 32nd World Shore Angling Championships last month.

A fourth-place finish on a tough fourth day of the week-long contest was enough to secure the bronze medal for Ireland's eight-strong angling team in the Algarve on 26 November, as Fishing in Ireland reports.

"The importance of this result cannot be overstated," said Irish Federation of Sea Anglers (IFAA) chairman Michael Quinn as the team arrived back at Dublin Airport on 28 November.

"It shows that Ireland’s anglers are among the very best in the world and can compete with the very best in the world at the highest international level."

Ireland last claimed the world bronze medal in the Netherlands in 2012,as previously reported on Afloat.ie.

Next year's Shore Angling Worlds will be held in Wexford between 12 and 19 November.

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.
