The winners and runners-up have been announced in a national video competition for Go Fishing Week 2021, which is taking place this week.

Entries were received across Ireland under the title ‘Why I love to fish’, and one overall winner and five-runners up were selected.

The overall winner is Michael Galvin and his son Cathal from Longford, who received €100 worth of angling tackle. Runner-up prizes, which include buoyancy aids, are awarded to Angela Byrne; Anthony Murnane; Christopher Eleker; Maud Finn and her twin boys; and Michael Heron.

Suzanne Campion of Inland Fisheries Ireland said: “We would like to congratulate all of the participants in the competition and in particular our overall winner and five runners-up.

"The videos embodied nature, a sense of wellbeing and enjoyment and displayed diverse footage of the anglers favourite fishing locations around Ireland.”

Go Fishing Week continues until next Monday 3 May and entries are still open in another competition, this time sharing a photo of a favourite fishing spot, as previously reported on Afloat.ie.

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.
