Keady and District Angling Club crowned All-Ireland Champions 2017

Keady and District Angling Club Juniors enjoyed a great success at this weekend’s IFPAC All-Ireland final.

A team made up of Jake Fisher (captain), Clíodhna McKenna, Amy McKee and Jack Lynas were crowned All-Ireland Inter Club champions while another team of Paul Og Sherry (captain) Gemma Fisher, Niamh McKenna, Pádraig McKenna and Naoise McKenna came third.

A brilliant achievement in the inter club section.

In the individual final, Jake Fisher was crowned U-18 All Ireland champion for the third time in four years, a brilliant achievement for an amazing young angler.

In the U-13 section, Paul Og Sherry was crowned All-Ireland champion and he topped off a great day as he also won the top rod on the day with the heaviest pike at 9lb 6oz.

A club spokesperson said: “We are delighted with each and everyone of our junior anglers on what turned out a very wet day!

“While they all went home absolutely drenched, they did so in the knowledge that they were All-Ireland champions in 2017.

“Many thanks to all the parents; grandparents and uncles for taking the juniors to the final today, it was well worth getting soaked for! Many thanks to IFPAC reps on the day as well.”
