The Loughanure Angling Club held the Annual Outboard engine competition on Loughanure Lake last Sunday. Another large turnout enjoyed a well run event and much credit must go to the hard working club members for the smooth running of the event and the great welcome and hospitality afforded to all the visiting competitors.
The fishing on the day was excellent with very little seperating the top prize winners. Winner on the day was Seamus Mc Connell from Castlefinn and he scooped the top prize of a Yamaha 4hp outboard engine.
