Cobh, will this year host the 2018 Home Nations Sea Angling Boat Championships which will take place over three consecutive days from Thursday 14th through Saturday 16th June. Four teams will make up the tournament which will see the cream of angling talent from Ireland, England, Scotland and Wales take to our local waters in a bid to take home the honours.

As of Monday the four national teams began to arrive at the Commodore Hotel in Cobh, which they will call home for the duration, and early Tuesday morning the rods and reels will be put through their paces as practice begins.

Team Angling Manager Dan Lynch, Team Captain Pat Condon and fellow team members Padraic Clear, John Dennehy, Graham Garvey and Michael Callaghan, some of who are no strangers to the local area, having previously fished Cobh waters, all look forward to the challenge.

The team would like to express their thanks to Cork County Council, Cathal Rasmussen and Padraic Lynch. Patrick O’Shea and The Commodore Hotel. Michael Callaghan & The Wild Atlantic Way, Mooney Boats/Grundens Wet Gear.

The Munster Council of the Irish Federation of Sea Anglers would like to wish Team Ireland ‘All the best’.
