EC Shore 2020 Kilmuckridge, Co. Wexford Ireland

A message from EFSA Chairman, EFSA HQ

Hello Dear Hard Core Shore anglers of EFSA!

It is really a pleasure to say a few words to you all, which I normally only do in my EFSA Annual Report.

I am in my last year of presidency. It has always been a great pleasure for me to see how much enthusiasm EFSA competitions are carried out with. It is the love for our sport and the community that makes it all possible!

I also did shore angling years ago. It is amazing what fish can be caught, depending on the country where the competition is held. “Nulli Secundus and Tight Lines, long live EFSA!

Your President/Chairman

Horst Schneider, President, EFSA

A message from Chairman EFSA Ireland

Dear EFSA friends, Cèad Mìle Fàilte a Chàirde. A hundred thousand welcomes, friends.

EFSA Ireland are delighted to host the 2020 European Shore Angling Championship and extend an invitation to one and all. This will be the sixth occasion on which EFSA Ireland have hosted the event and we will return to the County Wexford village of Kilmuckridge where the Headquarters will be The Upton Court Hotel.

The championship will be fished from the beaches of south west Ireland between Wexford Town and Arklow, weather permitting. Should the weather be unsuitable there may be a need to move to one of the southern estuaries or north to Wicklow. Hopefully this will not be necessary.

The angling venues may be some of the following – Clones/Kilgorman, Morriscastle/Ballinoulart, Ballinesker, Tinnebearna, Ballinamona, Roney Point, Curracloe. All are easily accessible and fishable in all but the worst of easterly gales.

The members of EFSA Ireland look forward to welcoming old friends and friends we have not yet met to Ireland in October 2020. On behalf of EFSA Ireland I wish all competitors good fishing, good weather and good luck.


Tight Lines,

George McCullough

Chairman, EFSA Ireland
