Top catch for Friel in Mulroy Bay competition

John Logue presenting Sean Sweeney , winner of the Best Junior Prize at last weeks' Mulroy Charity Sea Angling Competition
THE Annual Mulroy Bay Charity Sea Angling Competition was held on Saturday, August 24.

47 Anglers took part including 9 juveniles, with the boats departing from the scenic Moross Castle.

Everyone enjoyed taking part in this worthy event even though the catch return was small for some anglers.


The prize winners on the day were; Best Team: John Sweeney, Sean Sweeney, Paul Sheerin and Martin Mc Elwee.
Best Male Angler: Raymond Friel.
Best Female Angler: Ellen Logue.
Best Juvenile: Sean Sweeney.
Best Variety: Patrick Morning.
Best Boat: Edward Joseph Mc Grenaghan.
Youngest Angler: Kyle O’ Donnell, aged 8.

The organisers would like to thank the many generous sponsors and all the boat owners and skippers involved, whom without whose help and support, this event could not have taken place.

The Competition organisers were delighted to report that this years’ event raised over €900 for the very worthy RNLI.

Rathmullan Charters still have a few weekend dates available in September for groups of up to 12 with rods and reels supplied free of charge. Call Angela on 087 2480132 for details.
