Irish Hospitality Above and Beyond

June 23, 2010

Irish Hospitality is still here and was proven last week with American guests who were staying in our bed and breakfast accommodation. These guests were out sight-seeing and needed to visit a toilet.  They presumed this facility would be provided at  the church they were visiting ,but found it locked. On asking a lady they met at the church were the nearest place they could go to find a toilet, this lady insisted they follow her to her private home, some way from the church and allowed them use of her bathroom, then entertained them to  tea and cakes.  Our American ladies were so impressed at her hospitality towards them. Where else in the world would this happen?

Happy breamers!

May 30, 2010

Cheshire anglers Stuart Heath and Dave Williams got their Irish holiday off to a busy start with a combined haul of 92 kilos (203lb) on Cavan’s famous Lough Eonish.

In fact the delighted duo were staying at Eonish Lodge Guesthouse, Killeshandra, and fishing the BBs private shoreline.

The session started on Friday evening when the two men mixed enough brown crumb based groundbait to provide 60 balls, which they balled-in either side of the fence at the well known donkey hut.

 Stuart was first up on Saturday morning and making his first cast around 5am and waited another 45 minutes before getting his first bite in the shape of a 5lb bream.  David,  prefers a more leisurely approach, meandered along at six o’clock and still managed to get 32 kilos (75lb).

Both men were fishing with open-ended groundbait feeders while baiting their hooks with a mix of worm, caster and red maggot mostly on size 14 hooks.

 North Region Fisheries Board officer, Ted Sweeney, who kindly came along with his scales and weighed both catches and giving Stuart spot on 60 kilos (132lbs).

This is just the start of the holiday.
