River of fish
The Inniscarra reservoir continues to attract visiting anglers after the World Championships have ended. Over the next two months ten fishing competitions will be held on the river ensuring that B&Bs, hotels and other accommodation will be busy along the Lee Valley. The well stocked river is guaranteeing anglers from the UK and Europe some excellent fishing and the improved facilities at the Coachford Greenway are now regarded as one of the best in Europe.
As part of National Heritage week , Aghabullogue, Coachford Rylane Heritage group organised a woodland walk with renowned botanist and herbalist Nikki Darrell at Mullinhassig Wood and waterfall last Sunday. The talk was very informative and gave those in attendance much food for thought on how our ancestors used the plants around us to survive and how many of the uses and benefits of these plants have almost disappeared from our culture.
