The Boyle and District Angling Club hosted the 10th annual Paddy Sharkey Memorial Cup on Sunday 4th March 2012 on Lough Gara.
The Sharkey family were on hand to ensure all anglers were well provided for with as much food & refreshments as needed to catch the fish. Many a boat called in during the day to just warm up with a cup of tea. Thanks Jane & family.
The results are as follows:
Overall :
1st. Noel Mc Caffery.
2nd Barry Darby.
3rd Ray Gillen.
