Waterways Ireland wishes to inform all water users on the Lower Bann Navigation that the European Coarse Angling Competition will take place on 29th and 30th June 2019.

Anglers should note that in advance of the competition on the dates stated above that there will be an angling exclusion zone in place from 10th June to 30th June (incl) from Portglenone bridge to the upstream extent of angling stands on the western bank in place to host the competition (approx. 2.5 km).

This exclusion has been endorsed by the fishery owner The Honourable The Irish Society.

Boaters should note the following; From 10th to 28th June boaters are asked to proceed through the stretch at low wash and keep to the east bank side of the river. During the competition on 29th and 30th June access will be controlled by Community Rescue service and boaters must follow a lead boat to take them through the zone.

Waterways Ireland welcomes the European Coarse Angling Championships to the Lower Bann Navigation and would take this opportunity to thank all waterway users and stakeholders for their co-operation in helping the organisers to host such a prestigious competition in Northern Ireland for the first time.
