IFSA Junior Home Nations Team 2018
The Home Nations this year will take place in Scotland this year in July. In preparation for the competition the U 16 team got together for a team bonding weekend in Carrigaholt in May.
The team are extremely dedicated to the sport and enjoyed a weekend of discussion, camping and fishing. The weather was in their favour and they tried a variety of marks over three days. On the Saturday Shannon Town Sea Angling Club invited the team to fish with them in a competition in Poulnasherry Bay.
Joe Byrne the IFSA national Youth Officer spent the whole weekend with the boys, and along with other IFSA members to help, they had a very successful outing. The Team and coaches put a huge amount of time in to getting prepared for competition. We are looking for partners to help our international teams as participants and coaches have to raise their own funding to travel overseas.
