This evening I took a short trip around the shore of Lough Mask to the location of The World Cup – no, not the football one (or soccer as it is referred to in this part of the world) but a fishing contest, and a pretty serious one. It starts tomorrow and lasts till Monday. I would guess there were about 200+ fishing boats, I’m not sure how many people will fit in each boat but I should imagine 5 or 6 people could get into each boat. The prize is what looks like a new boat, motor for the boat and I presume some sizeable amount of cash. There weren’t many people around but I will be sure to come back one evening to watch the boats come back to shore and check out their catches.
