I would like to thank Tommy McGrath for organising the Charis Competition at Lough Fea on Saturday.
Also Robert Paul for Helping.
It was a great success raising almost 900.
This event has been organised by Tommy for a few years now and this was the first time i had the opportunity to attend.
The event was well supported by club members who had a bit of luck at the angling and also at the raffle.
I was delighted with the painting donated by Anthony O Hagan which i was lucky to win.
This was my first time to see the Charis House and meet Valerie and her staff who made us very welcome with their tea and scones.
I got insight into the type of work they do for people with Cancer and there families. As a community we all know of a loved one or a family who ar affected by Cancer and appreciate what a great service that Charis and its staff Offer.
once again thanks to everyone who helped in any way.

Bernie & Philip you looked well in Fermanagh. Doing what you do best Bernie. Cooking !!!
Sorry to say that the aforementioned stream was running grey yesterday evening (Tue. 21st June). I have never seen a sign of life in it though the pond in the park itself has sticklebacks, water-hens, ducks and frogs etc. This is only about 10 metres away .

John we'll look into that. Thanks for the information.

There is a stream running along the boundary between Lidl and Polepatrick park/cemetery and it is polluted most of the time. Twice last week I could smell diesel and after any rain it seems to be grey. Maybe the club could ask the authorities to investigate this. I'm afraid that I have very little faith in the pollution hotline.

Thank you to all the men who worked very hard on the project to fix the river bank just below the pump house pool on Friday and Saturday.

In reply to Andrew,
Yes there has been quite a few Dollaghan caught on the River in the last few weeks,
mostly on the lower river and a few about Tobermore.
Some were caught on Fly and a few Caught on Mepps.

Just wondering if there is any early dollaghan in the river yet after all the rain we've had over the last week or so?
