Coarse Angling Festivals 2017

It is the longest list of formal angling competitions open to all anglers, used both by pleasure anglers wanting avoid clashing with pre-booked venues and the huge numbers of match anglers now coming to Ireland.   Altogether there are more than 40 events from May until October and a massive increase in the 1970’s and 80’s when there were just the “Magnificent Seven” major events.
