Canal Pairs Champs 2016 Grand Canal, Edenderry Co. Offaly


2016 Qualifiers

Sunday past saw 19 pairs of anglers turn out on the Grand Canal in Edenderry County Offaly for the 1st ever Irish qualifier in the Angling Trust, Canal and River Trust Canal Pairs Championship.

Anglers travelled from many parts of Ireland, both North and South as well as 2 pairs that travelled from Liverpool just to fish this match.

The match was fished on the Toberdaly and Killeen sections of the Canal. Clear water lead to tricky conditions for the anglers, however the Canal fished well and plenty of small fish were placed on the scales at the end.

Local man Pat Bartley took the spoils with 4.510kg of Hemp caught Roach from an unfancied peg in the middle of the section. Local club2.930kg member Paul Kelly took second place with 3.330kg of small fish taken over groundbait. Brian Kane was well rewarded for all his hard work clearing swims during the week with a 3rd place finish with 2.930kg taken on Hemp and Caster. Mark Allcock, who travelled all the way from Bangor in County Down was 4th with 2.850kg, while the young Conor Browne made up the last of the frame places with 2.840kg.

On the pairs front the 5 pairs travelling to Penkridge in October will be 1st Pat Bartley & Conor Browne ( 37 pts), 2nd Brian Kane & Paul Kelly (37 pts), 3rd Jeff Walker & Mark Allcock ( 34 pts), 4th Frank & Paul Holding ( 32 pts) and 5th Paul McLoughlan & Peter Walsh ( 30 pts)

Our thanks must go to IADA for running this qualifier, Edenderry Coarse Angling Club for the use of their excellent stretch of Canal and Waterways Ireland for all their help in facilitating this event.

Best of luck to the travelling Irish contingent in October, it should make for an interesting match.

Geoff Quinn.
