Ballinamore Pike Angling Club

The club members had their usual competition on Garadice Lake on Saturday the 15th of November.  Seven boats took to the lake in a nail biting hope of catching the largest and most fish.  Eventually one fish was caught!  The superior fisherman was Joe Junior Murphy, young and inexperienced but obviously more talented than the rest of the bunch!  It was suggested that they stuff and mount the fish of 1lb1oz.  But some say it might be better to stuff and mount the rest of the fishermen.

The Series of Talks for November on the theme of ‘Bereavement and Loss’ in the Kilmore Diocesan Pastoral Centre concludes with a Remembrance Liturgy in the Centre Chapel , Cullies, Cavan at 8:00p.m on Tuesday evening. All welcome.  Refreshments served afterwards.
