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.
