Boyle & District Angling Club are holding the Martin Mitchell Memorial Perpetual Cup on Sunday the 24th of August on Lough Key.
This is an open pike angling competition.
All proceeds are in aid of Roscommon/Mayo Hospice.
Fishing is from 2pm to 8pm.
Entry and Start at the Doon Shore, Lough Key.
There will be Tea/Coffee, light refreshments available at the Doon Shore.
We realise that this event clashes with the Horse & Pony associations Racing Day. This has been unfortunate coincidence, but nevertheless it can't be said that there isn't a lot going on around Boyle that weekend!
Both events are for good local causes so let's hope that turnout will be equally good for both organisations.
We certainly wish them well and hope that the weather will be kind too.
Boyle & District Angling Club has a history of friendship with the Horse & Pony Club and members of both organisations have helped each other out on many occasions in the past.
In spite of the clashing events, we hope that this tradition will not be broke on this occasion and to give them a hand setting up on the Saturday. Any volunteers please contact our committee, re: meeting time, etc.
Boyle & District Angling Club are holding a meeting on Thursday August 21st in Tawnytaskin, time 10 pm.
