Kevin McQuinn Cup held on Lough Corrib

On Saturday, 19th July, the Oughterard Angling Club hosted the annual Kevin McQuinn Cup (U16s) on Lough Corrib. The event took place from the boathouse, where the weigh-in was held at 6pm and the 15 entrants brought 10 trout, 9 perch and 2 pike too the scales.

Considering that the day was hot, calm and sunny, the catch was remarkable from the budding young anglers.

Shane Joyce, Oughterard, was the winner with 4 trout weighing 4.18kg, and he also won the heaviest trout.

The result was as followed:

1st Shane Joyce

2nd Maeve Molloy

3rd Ian Higgins

Thanks to Committee members Niall Walsh, Roger Thomas, the McMcQuinn family and all the children who fished in the competition.
